    I have been working at American Campus Communities full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Probably one of the most supportive companies I have ever worked for. Everyone at ACC is always one phone call, email or teams message away if you ever feel stuck or need help with anything. If you enjoy a different day to day job, this is it. Every day has something new in store. I can say, even through a pandemic, the ACC team really is like a family even though we may not get to be together all that often. This is a super fun and fast paced environment and everyone is always cheering you on and encouraging you to continue to pursue growth to get the most out of your career and to help us all be the best at what we do. Free housing benefits for on site management is a huge plus as well.

    Cons

    Turn season can get hectic, but it is a great team building opportunity with your team. As an outside hire, all of the systems and processes can be overwhelming at times, but after some time to familiarize yourself, things fall into place. Don't ever feel like you can't reach out to someone for help. Everyone here wants to see you grow and succeed within the company! Pay could be better, but it is on par with the industry.
