Good place to work, lack of compensation for full-time on site employees.
Maintenance Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Greenville, NCApril 2, 2018
Great company to work for, very hands on. Unfortunate they don't see the work the full time employees do onsite and then further compensate them. I have worked onsite for 3 years and pay full rent as a supervisor.
Pros
Good co workers
Cons
poor compensation

General Manager (Current Employee) –  USAFebruary 24, 2018
They do pay well and have great benefits however this does not outway the issues that come with a career with this company.

They expect too much of their employees, do not care about your work/life balance or you as a person. It is all about the bottom line and what you can do for them. Most issues come at a corporate level as no one is on the same page and it creates confusion at a site level. While you may have a great onsite team, the corporate level employees are hard to please, unforgiving and make mistakes that come back to bite you. If your direct supervior ever says anything you think is slightly questionable, take it to the next person in line ASAP and don’t wait or it could cost you your job by doing what you were told to do.

Favorites are played and they will end up keeping employees that cause issues and don’t do their jobs and terminating those that make the property function. I may work here now but not much longer. Too stressful.
Pros
Good pay and benefits
Cons
No work life balance, cut throat, no appreciation, favoritism

They work with the schedule of full time students. The management is easygoing and a pleasure to work with. Creating events every month help me gain organizational and planning skills.

Life is Great!
Assistant General Manager (Current Employee) –  Columbia, MOJanuary 5, 2018
Company culture is Outstanding! Every encounter I've had with the corporate office has been amazing. My Regional Manager encourages work/home balance, this is unheard of in student housing. This is a company that always does the right thing, weather it be for a resident or staff member. I would recommend Campus Advantage to anyone looking tor a career in student housing. One of the best companies I've worked with.
Pros
HR Dept, Corp staff, Pay, Work place culture, Work/Life balance
Cons
None

Long hours with no appreciation. I have been in the industry many years and have never worked in an environment that was so cut throat and was not willing to teach you their policy and procedures.

Loved Working Here
RESIDENT ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Tempe, AZAugust 4, 2017
I absolutely loved working as an RA for this company. It just felt like the building should have had more RAs, so it was a little tough completing all out work sometimes. Management and training were better than any other company I have worked for.

Can be slow
Community Assistant (Former Employee) –  Oxford, MSJuly 30, 2017
Some days were kept busy, but other days there would be nothing to do. If its bad weather, residents wont come therefore work goes by slow. Employees came and went fairly regularly but the manager and coworkers were nice. Did not like being on call. Best part of the job was meeting new people and making friends.
Pros
Meeting people, bonus for getting new signees
Cons
Slow at times

Not likely to move up in company
Leasing Manager (Former Employee) –  Knoxville, TNJuly 24, 2017
If you are not related or sleeping with one of the higher ups do not expect to go far in this company. The pay is below market but commission is great. The job culture is very seclusive so if you're not "in" you will not enjoy this job. Management is very young and immature. You will work long days especially during the summer with little to no extra compensation.
Pros
commission
Cons
no breaks, young managemnt

Exciting at the workplace. Never a dull moment.
Assistant General Manager/Bookkeeper (Current Employee) –  Baton Rouge, LAJune 25, 2017
A typical day for me at work would be collecting rent and oversee the enforcement of delinquency policies. Managing resident financial accounts and coordinating account receivables and accounts payables. Maintaining property files and accounts. Preparing reports for the General Manager and company management. Prepares reports for the General Manager and company management

Interacting and assisting with prospective and current residents about property services, resident accounts and other resident inquiries.
Assisting with a high level of customer service. Processing move in and move outs and transfers into the system.

The hardest part of the job for me would be the process of having to evict struggling students when they can't pay rent. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting and interacting with students from all parts of the country and from other countries.
Pros
Working hours
Cons
No breaks, and sometimes working through lunches.

Ineffective at managing their employees
Leasing Manager (Former Employee) –  Norman, OKMay 16, 2017
The company is not capable of finding the true problems in their offices. They place enormous pressure on their employees and do not recognize the hard work and efforts that are performed by the staff. They overlook gross incompetence in the top leadership and are unable to see the truth when it is staring them in the face. They value only numbers and do what it takes to save face at the expense of the hard working and caring employees who are more expendable.
Pros
Corporate involvement in local operations.
Cons
Unreasonable expectations, favoritism, inability to be objective in finding the problems in the office.

Leasing Professional (Former Employee) –  College Station, TXFebruary 26, 2017
Expected to do a lot of work for a little bit of pay. Pay should be increased for leasing agents because they handle a lot of things on site. Corporate is very poor in selecting management.
