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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to make commission and good money. Lots of leaders that have sales experience that can help you with your issues. Working for a big company so there are lots of customer references.

    Cons

    The acquisitions are constant and sometimes it is hard to keep up. The company might be a little more concerned with Wall Street than the actual customers sometimes. Some of the sales goals are a little unrealistic.

    Pros

    No one knows you're there, so it doesn't matter if you leave early or come in late

    Cons

    "Comp plans"-- you'll never see that money. And if you do, it won't be paid on time. And if it is, they might even take it back. Payroll department doesn't get anything right. They do not pay out PTO upon leaving (even on great terms). E-mails from company representatives regarding pay "don't count". I would encourage anyone who joins this group to not sign the Terms and Conditions. Again, no one will know or care that you work there, so they wont notice a document with a missing signature.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you know what the other departments are conveying to your staff, because it's all different.

    Former Employee - Account Manager  in  San Francisco, CA (US)
    Former Employee - Account Manager in San Francisco, CA (US)

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

    Pros

    If you are someone that likes sliding under the radar, doing minimal work, not having any work satisfaction, and not getting acknowledged -- this place is for you!

    Cons

    The pay is terrible. Only take this job is you have nothing else lined up as a sign of desperation. I worked on the Account Management team and the management was terrible. But the employees at the bottom of the totem pole are great. Account Managers are treated like crap -- even though we save the accounts the sales people have over promised great things to, and RealPage can't deliver.

    This is absolutely one of those companies where the higher up you are, the less work you do. If you are in San Francisco you need to make buddies with some higher ups in Texas or else your chances of getting a promotion are slim to none. Part of working in San Francisco and in the tech space is expecting a stocked kitchen and snacks -- it's just part of the culture. The company took it away from the SF office because it is not part of the culture in Texas.

    When I left the company, my manager told me she was sad for me "professionally". Talk about poor management when a manager is sad for you that you are leaving for a better position and much higher pay. It is truly a sign that management does not want you to succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of middle management. They do not do anything except sit on conference calls that will be repeated to the employees the next day and send out emails. I can vouch that my manager had no idea what anyone on her team did or how any of the systems functioned.

    Former Employee - Product Development in Carrollton, TX (US)

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

    Pros

    None really. Any good reviews here, I'm sure are put there by RealPage HR. I have not met a lot of very happy employees at this company. My advise, if you get a job offer politely turn it down and look for another company.

    Cons

    1. Senior management is full of property management folks who have no clue about software development.
    2. Very high turnover rate. The only employees who remain at this place are people who can't find a job elsewhere.
    3. Management is more concerned with Wall Street than product or customers. The CEO dumps a good portion of his shares into the market every year, so he is only concerned about maintaining the stock price.
    4. There is a re-org every three months. I reported to 7 managers in 2 years. Promotion based on favoritism and not merit. Incompetent people are promoted, while hard working employees are looked over.
    5. HR is a big joke and totally pro management. Don't look to them for help. Benefits and PTO are severely lacking.
    6. Company does not have any organic growth, bottom-line is declining. The growth numbers shown by the company are only maintained due to acquisitions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start investing in your employees and stop changing direction every three months. Start focusing more on product than revenue\stock price. The rest will follow.

    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.

    CHANGE FOR GOOD!!

    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.
