    Pros

    Big on resident life, has great values, care about opinions of employees, and corporate representatives are very friendly

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

    Pros

    Offers acceptable salary compensation for employees.

    Cons

    Disorganized. Management structure puts too many hands involved at one time which halts any progress from being made. Constant conference calls with no results that are an interference to the work day. Lack of communication from top level down. Upper management does not properly assess market needs, trends, or the best interest of the asset. Tunnel vision perspective on real estate markets, assumes a "one shoe fits all".

    Advice to Management

    Consult local attorneys in relation to local and state laws as leases are not always transferable from state to state. Different markets require adaptability and change to meet the needs of the asset. A one size fits all approach does not work in all markets. Too many upper management individuals are involved on projects and are stretched too thin to make effective and timely decisions. The interruption of continual conference calls halts the management team form being used effectively.

    I have been working at Campus Advantage part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love that CA allows me to build relationships in my community and meet new people. I love the experience that I have gained and love each of my residents.

    Cons

    Poor pay, long hours, "job first, school second" mentality at my property. The job description is nothing like the actual job you do as a CA, which is sometimes fun, but other times sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the CAs more. 9/hour is not okay for the work we do.

    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.
