    Pros

    Fantastic work life balance, great company culture and an excellent place to grow in your career.

    Cons

    None, this is a fantastic place to work.

    Advice to Management

    My only reccomendation would be to maybe have a mentor program for lower level managers that don't onboard at the corporate office.

    Pros

    Fun, energetic company. You're really allowed a lot of freedom in marketing; they have the stage set in terms of branding but really allow each property to have their own vibe and do as they please.

    Cons

    While as a Marketing Associate, we often dealt with quite a bit of leasing responsibilities and some of the practices were questionable. The pay was also wildly underwhelming for the amount of work you actually do.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more. Fine tune your leasing practices.

    Pros

    -Opportunities for Growth: Happens often to those who earn it with Aspen
    -Employee Benefits!!! Employer contributions are amazing! Shows the care that Aspen invests in all employees.
    -AspenAwake: They give back to communities on a global scale in a big way!
    -Support: They have your back in all aspects, but allow you to execute the plan
    -Work Environment: Fun and Upbeat. Not just an "office job" or "sales job"

    Cons

    -The company is growing due to success so there can be several changes to keep up with, but that is part of being on a team with upside and improvement
    -Turn Season is late nights and tough work, but it is so much fun. You get appreciated for it by the company once you make it through.

    Advice to Management

    There is no doubt that you will continue to grow due to the quality and success that are your standards. Please do not fall victim to the quantity over quality. Keep growing your people with your business so that the quality keeps better as the team gets bigger! Keep being Aspen Heights!

    Pros

    Lincoln Was a good company, then Aspen took over. Things got much worse.

    Cons

    Vendors not being paid. No money for any of the essential improvements like door locks, security cameras, windows. Aspen Heights bought out Lincoln Properties Grand Campus Living. Their reputation is to take over, fire everyone, and start over. This was done at the Depot in Akron, Ohio, and also at 22 Exchange Student Housing, in Akron, Ohio. They don't even try to see which employees should stay, and which should go. They just fire everyone and start over.

    Advice to Management

    You had some very dedicated, knowledgeable, and trustworthy people that knew all the "ins and outs" of their profession, and their unique building, and the residents. You threw them away as if they were trash. You came in with blinded eyes, and treated people like garbage. I pray that you would open your hearts and mind to the word of God.
