    I have been working at Edison Properties, LLC full-time

    Pros

    A hidden gem right in Newark, this company actually operates 6 companies that are well-known and loved in the area including Manhattan Mini Storage and Parkfast. The company cares for its employees and doesn't have layers of management. Family culture, recognition events, and even free fruit! Company does well and is moving headquarters to a renovated building next year.

    Cons

    Company celebrates just 6 holidays a year and is not closed for the day after Thanksgiving. Seems that other companies have a few more holidays or use several "floating" holidays. Healthcare seems expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to have strong professional leadership.

    Pros

    Co offers benefits and 401k

    Cons

    Micromanagement. Bosses in office think they are gods gift to the world. We are forced to kiss mgmts butt when they com visit. Then they talk about how great they are - you're a manager in a storage company. Get over it. Also forced to work weekends holidays and nights so mgmt. can be off

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourselves

    Pros

    Solid company and benefits. There are some nice people in the lower jobs, avoid the pres and "VPs" at all costs.

    Cons

    Managers only care about themselves. The president says it's all about the people, yet in his management meetings, it's clear that they only care about revenue and their bonus. Management really doesn't have a clue how to run, market, or manage the business. Constant changing of mgmt leads to constant changes. changes in sales is made by a guy that doesn't do sales, but used to 15 years ago. Better to skip this mess of a company. The sales trainer can't sell and teaches a way of selling that doesn't work in real life. Employees only want to collect their checks and avoid the wrath of mgmt. there is a lot of favoritism, and the facility VPs can't spell or write correctly, have no formal education, yet act like they are big shots- but every day might be the one where you are no longer needed. They also talk about career path but there is NONE. They don't promote lower people into mgmt since they pay them so low. Politics and bad people ruined this company years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Learn about the business instead of making changes that sound good on paper but don't work in the real world.

    Establish neutral leadership to handle the day-to-day running of the business

    Pros

    If you like a steady weekly paycheck where the wages are never messed with, while gaining some good job experience then Edison and its affiliates is a great mid-sized company to work for.

    Cons

    Because it is a family owned business one can only move up so far, but whether you make seven, six or five figures a year the atmosphere is such that you feel like you can be FIRED at anytime (on a whim).

    Advice to Management

    Everyone (the entire company) should undergo some form of ETHICS training with a refresher course maybe every five years for executives. managers and all salaried employees.
