    I worked at American Campus Communities part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They pay well for a part-time job, they are a very well organized company and treat their employees like people and not profit-machines.

    Cons

    A little too much favoritism. Other than that, there wasn't a lot wrong with working for ACC. I had a pretty enjoyable experience there.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps give your property managers a little more autonomy on who to hire. Hiring from within a company is great but that can lead to lackluster performances.

    I have been working at American Campus Communities part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Awesome people, lots of experience, full of upward momentum, and because the company is so large there is brand recognition through out the country.

    Cons

    Hard work, a lot of responsibility, people count on you to perform which can be a great deal of pressure for some.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to look at the line workers (CA) and improve the company not only from the top down but from the bottom up.

    Pros

    Semi-flexible schedule, live where you work

    Cons

    Management style was poor. The majority of employees were lackadaisical and lacked motivation to do a good job because they were in school as well.

    Advice to Management

    Be more attentive to how the employees are working so work doesn't fall on a single employee.
