    Disappointing to have so few people with 4 or more years

    Pros

    Enjoy working with so many knowledgeable people.

    Cons

    It's a shame to see how much the company has changed in the last few years, not for the better. People are back to doing their own thing after the company worked so hard to establish procedures and create strong training. Few long timers left with 2 VPs leaving last 12 months and two people over 15 years each leaving in last 12 months. Sad to have the company encouraging people to write positive reviews to offset the honest less positive reviews.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate your long term employees and don't take people for granted.

    Little help when you're new.

    Pros

    People are friendly but too busy to help you learn. Some benefits are comparable to other companies and others are not as good such as the amount the employee pays for insurance.

    Cons

    Recently started and was just thrown into position. I expected at least some training. The expectation to figure things out and do your job without being provided the tools to learn is disappointing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a training program and resources for help. People in office are too busy or don't have the knowledge for your position.

    Pros

    This is a company that runs very lean. They pride themselves on it. As a result this creates several learning opportunities

    Cons

    Running as lean as they do there is NEVER any time to breath. The high turnover results in many people doing the jobs of several - unfortunately there is not additional pay or recognition. They do not give COLA increases. The bonus plan is ambiguous and unattainable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage and promote work life balance. Canvas your peers to ensure there are realistic salaries paid.

    Pros

    They only positive thing for the employees that they would occasionally spend the tenant's money on buying lunches for their employees.

    Cons

    Very stressful place to work. They are a public company, but won't even hire receptionists for their offices. They run VERY lean and pile way too much work on all of their employees without any regard for their wellbeing. Plus, they don't really care for their tenants, except the larger ones that would make them look bad if they defaulted and had a bunch of empty space. My advice.....don't take a job here.

    Pros

    Simple, profitable business model. Industry leader. Employees with longevity at PS Business Parks are considered marketable in other settings and within industry because of the high demands put on their positions and the experience they receive.

    Cons

    Company operates extremely lean and with unfair expectations for team. Management is not responsive to internal issues. Poor communication from top down. Poor leadership.
