    Former Employee - Project Manager in Carrollton, TX (US)

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

    Pros

    Decent pay, great coworkers, and work/life balance is good. Although they should be more open to employees working from home. Very successful brand.

    Cons

    Lots of change/Reorgs, stagnant software design, different products are too silo-ed/not enough communication within sales, implementation and developers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more energetic and open to suggestions. Hire a designer to modernize your OneSite platform. Better reporting for clients.

    Pros

    Not sure what to say here...

    Cons

    There is zero work-life balance, training, time-off is frowned on. Executive and Senior Leadership needs a serious adjustment if this company is going to go anywhere. Be aware of your surroundings because nothing is streamlined with checks and balances. Anything and everything is open to one person's perception. Pay is terrible and is not competitive - this is not a career destination, only a stepping stone to your actual career.

    Current Employee - Developer  in  Manila, Manila (Philippines)
    Current Employee - Developer in Manila, Manila (Philippines)

    I have been working at RealPage full-time

    Pros

    I'm working at their Philippines office.

    1. Flexible work hours.
    2. Decent salary
    3. People are friendly, well it's Philippines anyways.

    Cons

    1. They won't allow additional benefits because it's not in the law and Texas office won't allow it.

    2. Promotion is very slow. And if there is promotion the right people don't get it.

    3. You do not have a clear job description. You will do QA tasks and BA tasks.

    4. Tasks coming from Texas are inhumane. They wanted tasks to be done in two days when it is usually done in two months!

    5. They are implementing agile, and I don't think they are implementing it right.

    6. Product owners don't know how to say no to clients.

    7. Did I say that annual performance evaluation is biased?

    There's more!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees.

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

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere.
    Nice workspace.
    Decent work/life balance but it all depends on your manager and group. There are some really terrible managers that play favorites, politic constantly, talk behind everyone's backs and only worry about making themselves look good. They rule by fear.
    There are some managers that really care about the employees and growing them professionally. They lead by example and want you to have a life outside of work. The groups/departments are drastically different.
    If you are lucky enough to land in a good group with a quality manager that wants you to succeed, hang on! They do exist.

    Cons

    Decent pay if you're coming off the street. Transferring within the company, ridiculous. Promotions don't mean you can make what your peers are making for the same job or the offer you'd have if you were an outside candidate. It means an increase that has to be approved by 10 people and probably won't get you anywhere near where it should.
    The company has a lot of growth and you can almost do nothing and keep your job. That being said, new positions are only added in India and the Philippines but the tasks assigned to them is embarrassing. Most of my peers in India have 10 more years of education or experience or both but they are given the tasks that a high school student could accomplish. They should be utilized more or they'll be bored and leave.
    Management is so top heavy!! And they reorganize the groups every 30 days or so! I know people who don't even know who they report to.

    Pros

    Hmmm. I don't have anything positive to say about my time here. It has been a very disheartening and disappointing experience.

    Cons

    1) No career path for Developers - I personally one Dev who has been at Dev III for ten years. 2) Outsourcing real development - what kind of software company outsources the development of its products to a third-world consulting company? It shows a complete lack of regard and respect for its own Developers. RP developers are there only for maintenance. 3) Lack of direction and obvious incompetence from Executive Management - RP goes through a management "restructuring" every six months. I personally have reported to four managers in 2.5 years and I know other Devs who have reported to 4 or 5 different managers in the last 1.5 years.
