unappreciated

Prop Manager (Current Employee)
Hanover Park, IL

I have been working at Public Storage full-time for more than 5 years

ProsNo one breathing down your neck all day.

ConsWe are pushed and pushed and pushed to sell. We are reprimanded when we don't get a lock sale with a rental. They think we are lying to them when the customer won't buy boxes with a rental. WE are the ONLY ones who bring in ANY revenue, yet we are treated like second-class citizens and the company keeps reducing our bonus program. Upper management lives like kings while we struggle to make ends meet. The new bonus programs says the company expects "40%" of "eligible managers" to earn a bonus. Wowee! That means they expect 60% WON'T??? How encouraging! The DMs and higher get four times the bonus money we get, and we do all of the work bringing in the $$. Disgusting!

Advice to Senior ManagementShow us we are appreciated and give us encouragement, instead of always reprimanding us for what we didn't do or accomplish. Morale is very very low.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
