    I have been working at American Campus Communities full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    American Campus Communities is a family of hard working individuals. As we say "work hard-play hard". The company highly promotes within and you are easily able to see your hard work pay off. The culture of the company is like no other and I would never want to work for another company again. American Campus is also extremely family oriented with lots of PTO time, paid maternity leave, parking for expecting mothers and so much more. As any job in student housing, the hours can be long, especially in the fall, but its all worth it to work with such amazing teams.

    Cons

    Sometimes long hours and overtime

    Pros

    American Campus is a place where you are truly valued, and you can see the direct impact your position has on the company. I work in a collaborative team environment where I always feel comfortable expressing my ideas/opinions with my team members and supervisors. Another fun part of work is the culture! Our Culture Committee in the corporate office plans events and initiatives that create team spirit and keep employees engaged. I truly love my job!

    Cons

    Good parking space is limited.

    Pros

    I think the biggest pro about working with American Campus is the amount of resources we have. If you need help with something, there is always someone there to lend a hand or you can usually find your answer through the resources provided. This company sets you up for success. On top of that, the culture is unmatched and the environment is unbeatable. It makes coming to work fun and enjoyable. I love all the birthday celebrations, activities around the office, and the amazing people that work here. The term "ACC Cheerleader" is used and I see why. Everyone here is so helpful, friendly, and I really could not imagine a better work environment.

    Cons

    The biggest obstacle is how busy we are but that can be overcome with good time management skills. Plus all the hard work really does pay off and is worth it.
