    Pros

    Very flexible with scheduling part time employees as they are all students. Last I heard, employees are able to live in the property for free if you work at least 20 hours a week. Decent pay for someone going to college full time.

    Cons

    Internet quality wasn't great at the Rochester location. Resident were very upset.

    Advice to Management

    Improve quality of buildings for resident housing.

    Pros

    -very organized, worked well with my schedule
    -Management will work with you if you express interest in upward mobility
    -Great resume builder for all Business majors

    Cons

    -high turnover rate for employees due to demanding work environment
    -if you aren't prepared to deal with customer services related issues, the job is not for you
    -tend to throw you into situations where you are in charge very early. It can shake newcomers.

    Pros

    Working with the residents, Develops you as a leader, Leasing, Marketing, Customer Service experience, and Programming. I also enjoyed that sometimes the situations can be unpredictable. This is also a great way to get involved on campus!

    Cons

    Being that this job is for college students, if you are not able to balance having a job and school this can be an extremely difficult time for you. The pay is low , so you have to be able to manage your money well.

    Advice to Management

    Management has to keep in mind that for students school comes first and everything after that is last.

  7. Great company to work as a recent graduate, hopefully I can continue to grow in ACC

    Pros

    Great benefits, stable business model, leader in student housing. Quality product and a no nonsense mentality.

    Cons

    Chances at upward mobility are there, but the transparency isn't always. Additionally, the compensation is a little bit lower than smaller companies offer.

    Pros

    Excellent advancement opportunities and an amazing work environment. CA's get to be really involved with the residents which creates a sense of community. ACC is a great company to work for! I would recommend it to anyone

    Cons

    There were many changes in management while I worked for an ACC property. It would have been nice to have some continuity during my year long employment.

    Advice to Management

    I love the opportunity to advance with the company but, does it always need to sacrifice stability or continuity in the workplace?
