I have been working at Extra Space full-time (More than 3 years)
Everyone works as team. From DM down everyone has common goals. Great work life balance. Most employees really care about their job, and have fun at work
Really cannot think of many cons. Only thing is sometimes when new technology is rolled out, it doesn't go smoothly.
