    I worked at Sovran Self Storage full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome support from corporate office in New York.

    Cons

    Low chance for advancement. Very focused on bottom line due to being public company. No community involvement and employees aren't allowed to do any marketing or events.

    Advice to Management

    Let stores become more active in their communities. The referrals will more than pay for the time and effort extended. The goodwill cannot be measured.
