    I worked at AroundCampus full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers were fun to work with and cared about our customers and schools.

    Cons

    Poor management, lack of communication (managers outright lied to contacts, interns, and coworkers on many occassions) Owner of the company is rude to everyone and consistently makes poor decisions then backpedals immediately leaving others to clean up the mess. Pay is extremely below market standards.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not sure you can fix this at this point, the scramble for digital seems to be too little too late. Pay your employees a fair rate and be honest and transparent with your employees.

    Pros

    Challenging environment, this company will push you out of your comfort zone and teach you invaluable life skills. Upper management is supportive and optimistic, even in tough times. Family environment and growth mentality.

    Cons

    Print industry declined heavily and its hurting revenue. The CEO has no idea of the collegiate industry, hurting the company and the employees in the last 2 years. Ruining the amazing culture the company once had.

    I worked at AroundCampus full-time

    Pros

    I can't find it in my soul to say anything kind or positive about my experience with AroundCampus.

    Cons

    Instead of focusing on this company’s low pay, outdated products, and poor performance over the past few years, I’m going to take the time to focus on something much worse. This company absolutely ruins people’s sense of self, strips away their core values, and replaces people with shells of who they once were.

    I watched countless friends, coworkers, and managers wither away into different people who had lost their passions, their will to get up in the morning, and their desire to interact and grow their relationships with the people they spend every single day with. By the time I left AC, walking through the doors every morning felt like a death sentence. All you could feel was everyone’s combined misery, anger, and hopelessness.

    Take it from someone who knows, it’s easy to get up and move on to the next job but it’s not easy to get back the pieces of yourself this company takes away.

    Stay far away.

    Advice to Management

    At this point, you'd be better off closing up shop than trying to repair the damage you've done to your products, your reputation, and your employees.

    Learned a lot about persistence. This internship is meant for the people who want to prove themselves. It's a lot of hard work, but it was a rewarding eperience

    Pay is small. Company Rep support could be better.
