I have been working at Public Storage full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Customers are a pretty decent bunch. Decent work hours Benefits are a lot better than what they were and pay....eh....it's slim pickins these days. You can do a lot worse else where.

Cons

Bonus program changes on an annual basis to make it harder to obtain a decent payout. Job is touted as a customer service/management job but is actually sales. Upper management rules by intimidation. Because this is a publically traded company properties are falling apart and PM's can't do much about it other than field complaints. You have the title of manager but you are pretty much bottom rung of the food chain. District managers and regional managers get their bonus based on YOUR work and it's way more money than anything you will ever get for a bonus (which went from quarterly to monthly to annually). Also they do not promote from within so it's a pretty dead end job.

Advice to Management

Reconize the faces of your company, the relief manager and property managers as the reason buisness is driven.

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

    Pros

    Worked with some great hard working people that make the best out of work.

    Cons

    Another cheap and greedy corporation. Look up corporate greed in the dictionary and you will find Public Storage there. Keeps cost low for Wall Street investors. Low care about workers making a living wage. Insurance after 6 months of work. .25 cent raises. Low $10-$12 pay. Most places have no security cameras, or ways to combat many of the rude, and dangerous customers. Low budget work environment. Corp will push you to sell everything but do not reward you for the effort.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your workers with pride, give more than .25 cent raises after each year of employment. Make the sites safer by installing security cameras in every office.
