    Pros

    The goid things about working for Realpage is that the pay is good and they have several training classes that you take quarterly which increase your pay.

    Cons

    The performance expectations are a bit to high. There is a point system, in which, if you have kids or anything health wise that may cause you to leave or be absent, it will still count against with a doc note or not.

    Pros

    The company is growing a ton and there is lots of room to move horizontally if you are not satisfied with your department. Vertical growth is definitely possible from what I've learned in the few months I've been here.

    Cons

    SF office is nice but a good 10-15 minute walk from Bart or Muni. Could benefit from better communication between offices as the main office is in Carrollton, TX.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All departments would benefit from a clear path on individual growth within a position and vertically. RP University needs to be more than an online training tool, but needs to include in person training, motivational tactics, and effective feedback loops.

    I have been working at RealPage as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have been shooting for RealPage for about a year now and have greatly enjoyed my time with them. The lead photographer who I report to is very friendly and helpful. The assignments are clearly defined and so are the companies expectations. A shot list is provided so that every shot that they require can be accounted for during the shoot.

    Cons

    They don't pay as much as some of the other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Email communication is great but if there is ever a time you need to speak with someone in management due to a question while on the job, it is difficult to get the person you need to speak to about the issue on the phone.

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

    Pros

    This company is changing and evolving on a monthly basis. Nearly 4000 people but can feel much smaller and more nimble. Very nice, intelligent, and caring leaders who also roll up their sleeves and do real work. A global footprint with offices in India, Philippines and Spain. Multiple acquisitions each year but much of the growth is expansion. Top player in the industry!

    Cons

    The challenges come with the rapid growth and being the leader in the industry. The company constantly reorganizes. Basic larger company functions like internal communications and business planning are missing. Common processes and systems are being created on-the-run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase internal communications to pull the company together and fix internal challenges and opportunities before further acquisition activity.

    TX Headquarters thinks SF is the ugly stepchild

    I have been working at RealPage

    Pros

    - There are some people in the office who are very nice.
    - Office space is newer and nice, very modern.
    - Somewhat flexible
    - Good location

    Cons

    This is mostly directed at management in TX since there is no hiring in SF anyways.
    - All upper management has left. This has left some groups being lead by managers who do not know what they are doing.
    - Teams are being set up to fail by not having enough people to support what is expected.
    - Moral is TERRIBLE. You are firing people without explaining and trying to tell people that you are not closing the SF office? Everyone in the office is talking and most do not feel as though they are being told the truth.
    - Pay is low
    - All the products are broken
    - NO growth potential. If you work hard do not expect to get noticed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Texas may be cheaper, but theres a reason all the smartest in tech move to SF. Also take a closer look at management.

    Stop Buying Companies. Start thinking Texas has all the answers.

    Pros

    The CEO is a visionary
    The stock plan for key employees is top notch

    Cons

    The Executive team knows how to run a software business, but doesn't have a clue about Marketing Services
    There is a not-invented in Texas mentality in Dallas. The problem is Dallas HQ isn't full of average performers
    In order to grow the business, they buy companies. The integration of the acquisitions is poor
    The Chief People Officer position is Red Herring. There is very little growth on the tech side and on the management side, once you becomes a VP - you have the privilege of joining the CEO's hit list of people he wants to get rid of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop acquiring companies
    Stop promoting who the CEO likes to executive positions.
    Treat your technical people with respect.

    Pros

    casual dress, benefits are average and so is pay. Like most Company's some departments seem to work well and others don't.

    Cons

    lack of upward mobility
    massive overtime with no rewards or recognition
    Lack of inter-department communication and follow through

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top executives still treat many facits of this company like a small business
    Departments refuse to work together to improve overall Company results
    Company continually losing top talent of employees that DID make a difference and care.

    Pros

    The people you get to work with are great, and the building is very modern so it gives a nice bright and open atmosphere to work in, and its a short walk from bart so it makes for a nice commute. They provide once a week catering for either breakfast or lunch, and it comes from reasonable resturants in the area.

    Cons

    Because the headquarters is in Texas there is a huge disconnect not only in management, but also the work that is being done by the employees in the SF office. There's also very little direction and communication both from management in the SF office and from Carrollton, on the direction of projects, causing confusion on the intention of what is needed. Over half the office has quit in the last 3 months, and now they are laying off an entire team. They now have plans to sublet half of the office space.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a process and road map together for what you want to achieve, communicate with with the people who are working on these projects, and stay on top of it.

    Cons

    Pay slightly below average, management in Texas does not understand San Francisco culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please try to understand how tech companies are suppose to function in San Francisco Bay Area.
