    I have been working at Public Storage full-time

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Fair Market Compensation, Above Average paid time off allowance, Great longstanding management teams

    Cons

    Review Compensation for our field employees, current turnover is a bit high as these employees appear to be moving to new employment with increased benefits and compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with your history of maintaining long standing employees this practice is not as prevalent in the private sector as in years past

    I worked at Public Storage part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I literally can't think of one single reason to recommend working for this company. Of all like ten jobs I've had in my life, this one was worse than all the rest combined!

    Cons

    Where do I start? They start off in the interview process by selling you on the job the same way they train you to sell to customers. You are told there will be "light" cleaning... That's a severe understatement. Then if you're in a district with many properties they tell you they will keep you in one location closest to your home when they really just toss you wherever they want and you're working three different locations in one week. You're also told you'll be working in a specific location but 5 minutes before you leave your house they say to go somewhere else. When you give your two weeks notice, the distric manager goes around like a 12 year old girl and tells all of your co-workers that you quit. I will NEVER return to this company or recommend working for them OR renting storage space with them.

    Advice to Management

    Oh management... Let's first start by trying to keep a solid distric manager for more than a month. Then how about you guys leave your employees alone on their days/time off. When they are off the clock, they don't owe you a text or phone call. Also stop making them use their personal phone for work use unless you're going to start paying cell phone bills which we all know you won't.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more

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

    Pros

    Forward thinking company which has experienced lots of growth since I joined. Senior Management is very aggressive and smart when making their business decisions. That is why the Company is #1 in the Storage world. Stable company with high demands and expectations of their employees. So if you work hard you will thrive here. There are busy times, but Management will work with you to help with work life balance. The people here are great. Most of the newer employees comment on the people here being very helpful in assisting you when you need help. Very good company to work for.

    Cons

    In comparison to prior employers, benefits are a little softer and less sick days and holidays. They try to make it up to you with increased PTO days off.

    Advice to Management

    Good job and keep growing!

    Pros

    The work is repetitive. If you have a technical background, you can leverage your case for implementation. Management is very laid back VP - C- Level exposure. Upper management is fair and decisive.

    Cons

    Low salary. Everything is ran mean and lean. Business model remains mom and pop despite being in busy over 30 years. Room for advancement pending technical skills. Mid level management is poor.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers with skills and the ability to work in the trenches.
