    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.

    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.

    Co-workers are friendly and helpful. Managers want you to succeed and are helpful. Friendly and fun atmosphere. Has a sense of family and community.

    Cons

    Limited growth. Developers don't seem to share the CSD desire to help. Some team leads don't know how to lead.

    Advice to Management

    Provide training to your team leads. Some team leads and managers don't know how to lead teams and just micro manage.

    I have been working at Yardi Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company has grown steadily, year after year. New products, new innovation, new acquisitions, and impressive revenue growth. It's good to be with the leader in the industry. But regardless of the size (now over 6000 employees), the company still retains the feel of a family business. And that's nice.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's hard to keep up with the growth. Good problem to have.

    Advice to Management

    More clear career pathing to help both the company and the individuals grow more smoothly.

    Pros

    the people,
    stand up desk,
    holiday party

    Cons

    no career growth,
     Salary so low get ready to share a room in a high cost of living city of Santa Barbara,
    They require you to be there x amount of time in order for them to consider you for a promotion even if you are not learning anything new.
    Very repetitive after the initial training.
    Software release cycles are not fast enough.
    You become a therapist for the clients.
    No mental stimulation.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the people that want to be keep learning, not just for their current position, but for career growth within the company.
    Actions speak louder than words. They say that their's room for growth, but anytime some type of event comes up that is a requirement for you to get promoted someone more senior ends up getting it. During my time there only 1 person was promoted to a role that wasn't a Senior TAM and the only reason was because that person left for another company. Favoritism starts to form.

    I don't disapprove of the CEO, but if it wasn't that large clients are heavily invested in the software, most would have gone to a competitor. This is what I continuously heard from the constant complaints clients stated when used Voyager.
