    Pros

    Your housing is taken care while you are working there.

    Cons

    The pay is awful if that's the only this you are relying on. No one could live off the "stipend" they give you. You will be overworked and underpaid.

    Pros

    When you leave you will have hilarious stories

    Cons

    Scheduling is useless, managers have some people work max hours and some people barely work, yet they all make the same because it’s a stipend.

    Employees make the same but are held to different standards

    Worthless staff

    Scam leasing

    Facilities are terrible

    Advice to Management

    Actually train people. Don’t burn out good employees

    I worked at Campus Living Villages full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    4 weeks vacation and 12 days of sick time for each employee. Most(but not all) of the corporate office employees were fun to be around everyday. My supervisor was accomodating when it came to work/life balance and didn’t micromanage.

    Cons

    Too much turnover including CEO’s. 3 CEO’s in last 4 years. That makes it very tough as visons and priorities constantly shift. Non-qualified employees in management positions. Qualified employees are overworked. Very lean budgets and staff. Not utilizing modern technology...e.g. still using paper time sheets.

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive instead of reactive. Hire for fit and not convenience. Be swift with decisions.

    I have been working at Campus Living Villages full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    4-week vacation, if you are allowed to take it. Do not be expected to and when you do you will be looked down on, no matter how many years of service or how well you perform. The worst thing you could do is make plans without including your manager in your daily life.

    Cons

    Lowest pay in market.
    healthcare cost higher than market average.
    Corporate has almost no understanding of village life.
    Finance will make you remove everything beneficial to your village, like maintenance and student life programs, budget, tell you cut staff to save money but allow hundreds of thousands to be spent on "conferences" each year.

    Executive are unwilling to make a commitment or decisions causing untold amounts of missed opportunities and lost revenue or they are exceedingly aggressive, angry, spiteful, childish and uncompromising even when they have zero experience with what they are talking about, and they will almost never take advice from others. You will be yelled at and talked down to no matter what your actual ability.

    HR- unable to control the harassment, retaliation, and favoritism performed by executives. Lodging a complaint with out retaliation is impossible because they immediately inform whomever the claim is about. It is a perfect breeding ground for abuse and harassment.

    No matter your job title, do not expect to have authority over any matter unless of course it's a problem you need help with, then you will be left alone so others are not bothered.

    Pay and incentives are not based on value, performance or worth to the company. Pay decisions and promotions are made for friendship and loyalty to a person in power. Even if you are completely inept, friendship will take

    Advice to Management

    Australia -See cons, fix it, it is costing you money, talent and reputation.

    Pros

    You get to work where you live and make friends with the residents.

    Cons

    Not enough hours, doesn’t pay for your housing, they don’t care if you want to go home for break and do necessary things like go to dr. appointments or visit family they want you to stay the whole break for no reason instead of just working part of it and alternating with coworkers, lack of communication in all areas, and horrible training.

    Advice to Management

    Treat RAs like actual employees, students, and people with lives/obligations outside of the job.
