    I have been working at Yardi Systems full-time

    Pros

    . Yardi is a family run company which has its own set of benefits and drawbacks
    . Pretty relaxed work environment although this has changed recently
    . Never run out of work to do
    . Company is growing nonstop
    . Market leader in the field
    . Monthly meeting to see how every team does
    . Some functions that are fun
    . Yardi truly believes they do the right thing
    . Good job if you want to cruise thru life without thinking and never leave the company

    Cons

    . Company is growing at the expense of its work force
    . Low remuneration which affects family life
    . Work weekends for free w. no recognition
    . Micromanaging atmosphere, management obsessed with themselves and their friends
    . Issues are looked at or so they say for months and nothing happens
    . So many staff quitting all around but they dont say anything because it will strike up fear
    . Job is made to be very simple nothing too hard
    . Managers make personal relationships a priority and dont care about doing the right thing
    . Culture of intimidation is present.. not allowed to say what you think, very tense working environment and very cut throat
    . Not a worthy organization to work for, better to move to a client or some other software company

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring

    I worked at Yardi Systems full-time

    Pros

    Workmates
    Office
    Weird packages
    Global Office
    It's hard to come up with more pros

    Cons

    Cloud Service
    Culture
    Bludging management
    Low Salary
    False Promise

    Advice to Management

    Cloud Service (IT Service) in Sydney is just dead
    Your concern such as work culture, ethic, progression, and salary don't get fixed. Too much poker faces to maintain reputation and to look good on managers who are based in the U.S.A. People are mentally struggling. Complaints and concerns just can't be raised because everything is under cover. Headquarter and offices around the world are not aware of this unfortunately. You will waste and regret for the rest of your life. Your life is worth more than what this company's letter "Y"stands for, which is a price of a penny

    I worked at Yardi Systems full-time

    Pros

    Most people are friendly and approachable
    Decent benefits plan
    Family owned business and good business culture, but only at the top level in the U.S
    Culture in Sydney is very un-australian due to heavy international influence from specific regions

    Cons

    Appointed managers are tactless and lack people skills (only exception here is the cloud managers)
    Management tends heavily towards micro-management
    Working from home is not allowed
    Promotions are politically motivated, rather than based on actual leadership skills

    Advice to Management

    If you wish to retain employees, find leaders who are good at managing people and possess charisma and people skills, not just technical competence. People often leave managers not companies.

    I have been working at Yardi Systems full-time

    Pros

    - There is a good team and culture
    - Not much micromanagement but might change soon
    - Support from other teams and mentoring

    Cons

    - Low pay
    - Politics in management
    - Does not understand the Australian employees needs
    - Doesn't care much about offices outside of US
    - No room for growth

    Advice to Management

    As with many other Sydney post, I agree that the pay is very low. If you want to retain staff you need to pay them more.

    In your response to other Sydney reviews, you mention you benchmark against national norms, what are you using? Is this US benchmark? If you're using US benchmark then you should pay us in US dollars and not AUD.

    It seems like when benchmark is used, you'll put employees in the lowest end of the mark. This seem to be happening across all departments in Sydney office, it'll result in few employees leaving this company soon.

    You need to research and understand the Australian market and our living cost expense.

    In regards to the 'top notch healthcare', not everyone uses it here. Unfortunately we can't cancel and convert our 'top notch healthcare' payments into out salary for other use such as paying for bills and mortgage.

    We can take this to HR but the decision is up to management in US HQ and it look like nothing is getting done.

    You need to be like other software companies such as Google, Salesforce etc.

    Pros

    Nice People
    Health Care provided
    Pay 50% of your travel to work

    Cons

    No Pay rises ever, not even CPI
    No bonus'
    Bad staff are not let go, good staff leave, so on a downward hill
    Too American focused, upper management don't care outside of USA
    Expenses take too long to process leaving you out of pocket for long periods
    No upper management in Aus leaving us directionless
    Poor communication between staff of different teams and what little management we do have
    No chance to climb the corporate ladder, structure is too flat, no opportunities
    No training whatsoever

    Advice to Management

    Provide Basic pay increases so we don't go backward
    Retain good staff,
    Open Communication lines with your employees
    Put employees first
    Walk the walk, don't just say things will improve when you have no intention of doing so

    I worked at Yardi Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lack of organisation means a lot of downtime between projects.

    Social aspect of being "in the trenches"

    India support team have a good culture.

    Cons

    Flat management structure forces senior managers to deal with every day tactical issues (usually poorly).

    Sales-focused at the expense of product quality and customer satisfaction.

    Products US-focused and not localised (or prioritised to be localised).

    Poor training for non-US staff with minimal admin and development support- preference for "sink or swim" of new starters.
