    Pros

    The bonus used to be a pro until they took it

    Cons

    You're never an actual manager they are required by law to name a manager for properties but you have no say so with other employees, "your" property, or anything at all. They will work you until you can't take anymore and want to get rid of anyone who asks that they be fair. With the schedule you never have time for anything either.

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like tyrants squeezing blood from turnips and actually do some work.

    Pros

    One of the best things about working for Public Storage is the work and independence. You are allowed to make decisions that affect the company in positive way and earn the respect of management. If you are a good, ethical, and hard worker management will show confidence in yours skills and allow you to grow and earn a good living. I have been with Public Storage for over 20 years and have enjoiyed the business challenges and the opportunities for growth professionally and intellectually.

    Cons

    Public Storage is a publicly traded company and as such must continue to grow and change in order to be competitive in the real estate market. Some people are not good at adapting to change in the business world and may find it difficult to understand business decisions a company makes to keep it successful.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to reward and acknowledge key perfomers who contribute to the success of the company big and small.

    Pros

    During my 10 years at Public Storage I've had the opportunity to work with incredibly talented people in the both the field organization and the corporate office. I've had the opportunity to take on many roles that were well suited to my talents and skills. Work/life balance is great, and as a corporate employee I've rarely had to work weekends or holidays.

    Cons

    I would love to see a profit sharing program. In years prior, employees had the option to purchase company stock in their 401K plan, this option no longer exists.

    Pros

    First of all, Public Storage is a very solid company that is well run and in great financial shape. So, you don't have to worry about layoffs and accross the board cost cuts. The management is very smart and knows how to run a company smoothly. It is not a disfunctional company at all.

    Beyond that, the people here are very nice and treat each other very good. I have been here 25+ years and am very lucky to have found this company. We stay busy, but we I don't work any overtime for the most part. So, we can all live with that. Work at Public Storage if you want to be part of an S&P 500 company that feels kinda like a neighborhood real estate company. Good atmosphere.

    Cons

    I really don't have any. Maybe a little more contribution to our 401K would be nice.

    Advice to Management

    How about profit sharing for "all" of the employees.

    Pros

    Great people all around. Easy going and friendly atmosphere. Convenient schedule does not interfere with life outside of work. I'm able to manage personal issues such as appointments, family emergencies, etc without too much difficulty. I'm able to get my work done without a lot of micromanagement. This is a strong company which gives more peace of mind as to job security.

    Cons

    Some previous perks slowly disappearing giving a more corporate feel, but still an overall great company to work for.

    Pros

    There is an open line of communication between management and employees. This is a stable organization that will provide you with long-term career stability. The compensation plan is very competitive within the retail industry. The management team operates with a high level of integrity and personal accountability. They value family time and a good work life balance.

    Cons

    In order to maintain the competitive edge and company growth, hard work is required. Some may view this as taking away from personal life. If you struggle with time mgmt., and/or personal accountability, then this may not be the company for you. The company hires only "A" players
