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

Pros

Decent Bonus structure and stock options

Cons

There is no balance between work and life. You are on call 24 hours a day and expected to look at your phone every 30 minutes to make sure you did not miss a call, text or an e-mail. Regional Managers expect responses to emails even on Saturday & Sunday or else you get a terse call about staying in contact.
Regional Manager continues to add to the workload with no consideration for family or time off. Micro Managing and overriding DM decisions only to them hold DM accountable for the outcomes of their choices. Management promotes and demotes with no rhyme or reason behind their decisions, so much for open communication

Advice to Management

Let your DM's manage the business with balance this is what you hired them for.

    I have been working at Public Storage full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working Alone, Balance of Outside and Office Work, Decent rapport with most co-workers,

    Cons

    No Chance of Internal Promotion, Lack of empathy and respect from most of the Direct Supervisors, Lack of salary competition against rivals, Lack of Customer Service abilities from other managers.

    Advice to Management

    Actually show you care by giving all of the field property managers a realistic pay increase. Make the face to face contact more personable, instead of the feeling of being completely robotic towards customers.

    I worked at Public Storage full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decent compensation. Good field employees.

    Cons

    Upper management is cutthroat . No chance for quality property managers to advance to DM level. DM's hands are tied. They have very little ability to make decisions on behalf of the company. Regional VP's and above are more concerned with their bonus metrics than the field employees

    Advice to Management

    Spend less time looking in the mirror at yourselves. Get rid of the stupid (canned) scripts
