    I have been working at Peak Campus full-time for more than 4 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...

    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 worked at Peak Campus full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The upper management exec team seem to be pretty cool.

    Cons

    The company was in uproar. They were voted best company to work for but I was trying to figure out how or why. Those who work on the property management side are typically overworked, stressed, and just don't care for the position.

    Advice to Management

    More hands on training would be nice. Much less of the online trainings that include a million and one people on a call hyped about nothing.

      • "Assistant Property Manager"

        StarStarStarStarStar
          Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

          I worked at Peak Campus

          Pros

          Honestly the only Pros I can think of are the people I met at the properties I worked at. I enjoyed working with most of them with the exception of 3-4 people.

          Cons

          Where to begin, all of these observations were made within my almost 3 year stint as an employee. They preach “support and grow your team and staff” when in actuality they give you just enough of a pat on the back to keep you around but the second you want to talk about promotions they tell you to stay in your current job for at least 2-3 years. The pay is not the greatest, you don’t even make enough to qualify at your...

          Advice to Management

          Pay appropriately for the people that are the actual face of the property. Don’t be so obvious with who favorites are. Allow your managers to grow instead trying to keep them working a $15 an hr job for 2 years.
