I am currently at an internship where I work with a designer to come out with manuals and books. The designer works remotely and there is a lot of sending the files back and forth.

I got the designer to sync+share the file on Google Drive so that I can edit the file as well. The designer works exclusively on Adobe Illustrator which I can't afford to get. (we both use macOS)

Is there a software that will allow me to open and edit .ai files without many issues on Mac?

You can edit AI files in a Mac with Inkscape, a free, open source vector graphics editor. Inkscape is a professional quality vector graphics software that is used by design professionals and hobbyists worldwide for creating a wide variety of graphics such as illustrations, icons, logos, diagrams, maps and web graphics.
