    I worked at PS Business Parks full-time

    Pros

    Maybe salary but it's not even that high.

    Cons

    hours, management, work/life balance, expectations

    Advice to Management

    talk to your admin staff not just the supervisors, perhaps there's a reason why certain departments have high turn over.

    Pros

    Based on Corporate Office.
    Benefits, okay pay, name is resume builder, learn to operate under high stress and high demand.

    Cons

    A lot of overtime, employees are under appreciated and required to meet unfair demands, upper management does not know or care how goals are met (as long as they are), minimal diversity (again corporate office), no training, horrible time management. One VP lacks professionalism in all levels.
    If you are considering working here, understand that when they say they operate lean, they mean it. Work/Life balance is horrible. Does not offer any cross training, or job development. If you have other job offers, take them. Or, work here and burn out (or get fed up), like many have before.

    Advice to Management

    Increase work/life balance for ALL employees. Don't operate lean just to make a buck, as you've noticed by your low ratings, former employees see you as a terrible former employer.

    I worked at PS Business Parks full-time

    Pros

    Lots of vacation and sick time compared to other companies, decent benefits package, good learning opportunities in certain departments, very friendly and knowledgeable staff, executives are very personable too, casual Fridays

    Cons

    Certain departments in home office have lots of restrictions on vacation time. It is a very stressful place to work due to the fact that they operate very lean and co-workers are usually too busy to help. Long hours including weekends does not provide for good work/life balance. There is high turnover and pay is mediocre at best.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more work/life balance, particularly during quarter end, by hiring more staff. Please also provide realistic salaries to employees who are normally given extra work that is outside of their normal scope.

    I worked at PS Business Parks full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you stick around for 5 years or so then you can join the club of employees who don't get much time and take home a pay check

    Cons

    Little pay, long hours, no opportunity to grow, worst benefit package ever.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to have a anonymous hotline to report other employees for unethical conduct.
