    I worked at Campus Advantage full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is very unstructured which is a pro and con.

    Cons

    So many things to list. Most specifically they do not support their on site teams. Lack of structure and resources. Incorrect payroll and reimbursements. Watch it carefully. Pays less than other management companies. Benefits are not as good either. Less PTO, holidays and 401k.

    Advice to Management

    Support your teams. Establish a foundation. Build from there.

    I have been working at Campus Advantage full-time

    Pros

    Ability to work remotely for corporate employees, competitive salary and low premium health insurance, sophisticated software, desire to constantly improve processes, other benefits like professional chair massages, happy hours, and parties

    Cons

    High employee turnover, vast difference in capability between employees with the same job title, corporate office far from city center, lack of standardized training and updated training documents, expectation to work unreasonable hours to meet deadlines

    Advice to Management

    Consider implementing standardized new employee training videos or mentorship programs.

    You're doing a great job encouraging employees to participate in the success of the company.

    I worked at Campus Advantage part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Campus Advantage was founded by Resident Advisors, so as a company, their focus is on the residents, rather than on the profits. That approach really makes a difference in the way that they treat their employees and their residents.

    Cons

    The transition seemed to be pretty unorganized at times. There were a lot of situations in which we were told something would be fixed/updated/changed by this date, and it wasn't done until much later on.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Maybe work on the smoothness of the transition after purchase!

    Amazing connections made with senior leadership! The corporate staff (home office) is so friendly and relatable. They truly make you want to work up into a corporate position.

    Cons

    There are no cons that come to mind.

    Continue putting you're employees first and making this company enjoyable.

    Pros

    Pay really well, staff is very nice and the residents are pretty understanding.

    Cons

    This is the most demanding part-time job I have ever had. I work a lot, along with being in school, and other organizations, it can sometimes be a lot to handle.

    Pros

    Competitive compensation with leasing commission.

    There is a large disconnect between the corporate office and the onsite staff.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the onsite staff, they are the one's actually dealing with the issues first hand.

    I have been working at Campus Advantage full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    On-site supervisor is supportive and wants to see the team be successful
    Creativity is welcomed and all new ideas are given a chance
    The company balances being supportive of staff and students while maintaining a strong business model
    Executive leadership recognizes achievements at the property level and is easy to reach during a challenge
    Commission structure and salary are appropriate for all property level staff

    Cons

    Must be self-motivated and able to learn quickly on the job
    Must be willing to work outside of office hours as daily tasks are often interrupted by whatever is happening on the property at any given time

    Advice to Management

    Offer an option to flex time for salaried employees when they stay significantly beyond scheduled hours; this helps support a work-life balance
