    I have been working at Public Storage full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Grew career from entry level DM.
    Able to create, build and develop teams, while developing more and more responsibility and skills..
    Excellent business model, almost no debt, and consistently growing stock. I wish more companies were as financially astute as PS, and wish I would have held onto more of the stock.
    Performance driven company, that has extremely high business integrity. Always trying to get better, and stay ahead of the competition. Low turnover of employees at all levels, even at the property level.

    Cons

    IS Systems can always be better.

    Little room for advancement for the property employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep performance driven culture, but share more of the profits with the field level employees.

    I worked at Public Storage full-time

    Pros

    DM's are supportive and there is some level of autonomy.

    Cons

    Corporate changes bonus plans, salary increases, benefits and expectations frequently. It seems like every week, there is a major change (ie. a reduction in PTO, no raise, change in bonus plan, new expectations/quotas, back to the old expectations/quotas). It's really challenging to keep up with the changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a focus group of Property Managers who can share their ideas and opinions with you. These people KNOW what needs to be done for their property to be successful and putting everyone in the same mold will not work. You may be #1 in size and revenue, but until you are number one in how you treat employees...you won't be #1 in the storage industry.
