    I have been working at Peak Campus full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Peak Campus is a great company. I love the culture, the policies, the people, and all of our properties! It's always a challenge.

    I love being able to move to different properties in different states in different positions. I've been with the company for almost 5 years and I love each and every day I'm here!

    The hardest part of the job is being able to juggle all of the hats you wear each day. Some days you might be at a housing fair and others you might be troubleshooting on the property or conducting your monthly file audits or prepping for a resident event. The key is prioritizing and staying organized. Ask for help if you need it!

    I have had many different managers which has taught me to work WITH people - not against or FOR. I never felt like I was working for one single person, but instead TOWARDS a goal!

    Work here if you love challenges, a great company culture, and a home office that actually cares when you have a problem.

    The real money is in the bonuses - so lease up and you'll be golden.

    Cons

    I would have to say that sometimes things come home with you. For me at least, I struggle holding that work-life balance.

    I have been working at Peak Campus full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Leaders that genuinely care about your professional development.
    Core Values that are legitimately a Peak Lifestyle
    Leaders are relatable and remain transparent

    Cons

    Since our company is continuously growing, things change often because we try new things, figure out what works and make decisions that are fact-based vs feeling based. That being said, for a person who is not sure that growing with the company is part of their future, constant changes may be overwhelming. Whereas, for a person who sees themselves advancing with Peak, the processes and changes are easier to embrace. (In my opinion)

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    I have been working at the corporate office for a few months now and it has been such a wonderful experience. Everyone is extremely kind, welcoming and I am provided with all kinds of new opportunities. It's encouraging to know that the majority of the team has worked for the company for many years.

    Cons

    Haven't come across any!

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

    Pros

    Willing to work with busy college student schedule

    Cons

    Going on my second year they decided to change the way we were paid. They subtracted our pay from our rent cost.

    Advice to Management

    My managers at the time played favorites. Towards the end they took no responsibility when they were out of the office. This led to me dealing with an irate parent because her daughter had bed bugs. I had no authority to do anything to actually help the situation. The managers from when I worked there have since moved on though.

    I worked at Peak Campus part-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Close to where I live.

    Cons

    Management is awful. No respect for employees or residents at their apartments. Mangers take out their frustrations on employees. Yells at employees in front of residents. Mangers get frustrated and lock themselves in their offices for unspecified times.

    Advice to Management

    Be better.
