    I have been working at Yardi Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    * The people are the best part of this company
    * Genuine pathways for progression
    * You're given more freedom than you would expect from a larger company
    * Your work has direct impact
    * Half your Opal card balance is paid each month
    * You'll like your job and that's a positive thing

    Cons

    * Low compensation
    * Benefits translate to a higher tax bill, thus a lower income if you have Family Tax Benefit or a HECS repayment
    * Sydney office is largely forgotten, almost every office decision is made in Santa Barbara, so you just feel like an afterthought / not truly a part of the company
    * Progression isn't too far vertical, but you can move to all sorts of departments. You'll only really make it to the higher positions if you've been working there for 15-20 years
    * You get paid monthly (seriously, is it 1999?)

    Advice to Management

    As mentioned in earlier reviews, there's no dancing around it... the pay is sub-par. You can't make up for it with benefits anymore as they make us lose even more money through new tax rules. It's widely spoken about between colleagues that the pay is low, nobody here is paid fairly (so it's not just our imagination) ;-)

    The easiest fix I can think of for this is simple: provide an option to receive health care, or receive 80% of the cost of it in your salary if you do not want it, as it would cost the company less, and we would not get hit with such a large tax bill due to the health benefits.

    Yardi is proud of their employee retention, but there is a retention problem in Sydney. Since you sounded like you had no idea why you're losing people - I'll be the one to break the news to you: you don't pay your employees enough. That's it.

    Can we maybe have a full-time HR team in Sydney that has some kind of power to make changes? Everything proxies through Santa Barbara HR, so your concerns are never directly listened to, because HQ doesn't care about Sydney problems.

    The business will do well regardless of whether or not you look after your employees, but don't be shocked when they leave for a company that appreciates them. This isn't Santa Barbara, there are thousands of companies in Sydney that pay a living wage, and unfortunately, Yardi is not one of them.

    Software Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pune (India)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Yardi Systems (Pune (India)).

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was smooth. I got a call from recruiter for interview. Basic questions were asked about my current job profile. My interview was scheduled. There were 7 rounds - 1. Apti, Reasoning and Verbal, 2. SQL Writing Test, 3. Essay Writing Test, 4. Pre-HR, 5. Technical 1, 6. Technical 2, 7. Final HR. The only thing which could be improved was the slow process of the interview. It took the whole day and for last two round, they called me next week.
