    I have been working at RealPage full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Many smart and passionate employees.

    Cons

    I've been surprised at the lack of cross organization knowledge. Processes are rough around the edges and product alignment across the organization doesn't exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to each other, roll up your sleeves and work with all groups.

    I have been working at RealPage full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good people to work with and a lot of opportunities to work with new technologies if you know how to pitch it.

    Cons

    Extremely top heavy management. The business seems to solve problems in the app by throwing hardware at the problem, rather than fixing software related issues. Lack of organic growth from a saturated market leads to low stock price and no bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so short sighted and focus on what is going to make the company successful. A top heavy management environments where there's too many chiefs and not enough indians is not helping. The app is long overdue for a software refresh and it's holding back the company from truly growing.

    I worked at RealPage full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    From what I was told about the company from people that had been there since the early days, everything was great! Many had been promoted and were enjoying the benefit of getting in on the ground floor.

    Cons

    The good days are over. RP sells a cloud based solution in a very competitive environment. They have captured near 40% of the market with their rival having the other 40-50% leaving very little room for growth and still many players in the market. Many managers were hired from the outside and do not understand the solution themselves but expect greatness from accounts that have been worked by many sales people leaving clients confused and looking for a new solution. Promotions are made without merit and bending of the rules is common place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit hiring new sales people and let the people within the company that know the solutions be more involved. Stop focusing on numbers, start focusing on clients and improving their experience. The UI is old and outdated. Improve quality control when new solutions roll out and take a more proactive approach to fixing bugs and setup issues. Training is a joke. What you sell is very complicated, too fully understand all its pieces you must give people time and not dump it all on them at once.

    I worked at RealPage

    Pros

    Pay check twice a month.

    Cons

    Time off in India:
    15 vacation days + 12 personal days + 12 holidays + 12 sick days = 51 days

    Time off in the US:
    10 vacation days + 3 floating holidays + 8 holidays + 5 sick days = 26 days.

    Since they send the jobs to India anyway, they will be able to claim that their have an excellent work life balance.

    I worked at RealPage full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They cater in food for the home office employees and take top sales reps on glamorous trips

    Cons

    Management and leadership in general is arrogant, sexist, and slow to adapt.

    Constant reorganization is disruptive to teams and clients alike.

    A lot of executive and middle management pork needs to be trimmed off this hog. What do these people do?

    Benefits are just "okay" given the size of this organization.

    Churn and burn approach to hiring shows.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on retaining top talent instead of burning them out or forcing them to leave because of mismanagement. Hire a consulting firm to get rid of personnel redundancies and identify real solutions for growth, inter-company merges, and comp packages that retain top talent. The "good old boys club" vibe is a major turn off and alienates the majority of employees.

    Former Employee - Loser

    I worked at RealPage full-time

    Pros

    Working from a Remote Location

    Cons

    You are expected to move families into Assisted Living Facilties. If you do not have at least 4 moves per month, you are not meeting the goals. However there are alot of factors not taken into consideration. One, the cost. In certain areas, Assisted Living can be as much as 6000 for the room alone not including level of care charges...Next, is not as if we are able to tour the communities we recommend, so we are now handing it off to a community.,,their sales director may not have their act together and for whatever reason the family decides against that particular community.
    Sometimes families are not ready to make that move. Plain and simple. If you are able to keep your loved one at home rather than have strangers care for them then more power to you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop only focusing on your pet employees (and giving negative attention to your "weak links" Every member of the team is valuable and brings something to the table.
     Help the communities understand our value.

    Pros

    The Company is changing rapidly and growing Internationally, so there are a lot of things to do and learn.

    Cons

    It can be a very political place to work and the Company's equity program was a challenge due to fluctuating stock price (down from $29.50 in mid 2011).

    I have been working at RealPage full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I think that the opportunities for advancement are above average within the different departments and they offer a competitive compensation package. The company continues to grow through the regular acquisition of other companies within the industry,

    Cons

    Newly acquired products are often integrated with limited information provided to those responsible for supporting it. May face potential barriers moving to a different department within the company.

    I worked at RealPage full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's a job,it pays money. I was given a good bit of freedom to learn new things.

    Cons

    It's a dead end job. Promotions from within are a very rare occurrence. This company grows by buying companies. The acquired companies result in many new VP's, some rather meaningless. Average annual raise was 1%. I grew my job well beyond it's original scope with no recognition or compensation, despite my efforts. My experience is pretty typical, as all those I worked with felt the same way. The rave reviews written here must have come from their HR department. RealPage is *always* hiring. There's a reason for that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees to do their jobs, and reward a job well done. Clean out all the fluffer management.
