    I have been working at PS Business Parks full-time

    Pros

    This is a finacially strong company that allows its leasing team to negotiate deals. The goals and targets are clear. There is direct access to the senior executives on big deals, and decisions are made very quickly. The best part is that this company supports teamwork between leasing and property managment. Everyone is fun to work with, and supportive in attaining goals.

    Cons

    The company is lean, but everyone works hard. No slackers allowed.

    Advice to Management

    Make the health care benefits less expensive for the employees.

    Pros

    I started working at PS Business Parks about 3-4 months ago. I immediately felt part of the team and at home with the company. Everyone that I have come in contact with thus far from my local office to the Home Office has been nothing but extremely helpful and patient with me while learning the ropes for the new company. I feel empowered to do my job without being micromanaged and there is always someone willing to help with questions or suggestions.

    Cons

    So far, I can honestly say that I haven't run into any challenges other than any normal day to day challenges that this job faces.

    Pros

    PSB is a great company that provides unique long term career opportunities with one of the strongest real estate companies in the nation. I appreciate their decentralized operating platform that allows team members to make decisions as an "owner". PSB allows its employees to wear multiple hats which accelerates learning and development.

    Cons

    While I don't think its a con, be prepared to work hard, accountable to results, resourceful and a self starter.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance for employees. It's been my experience that hard work is rewarded with advancement opportunities. PSB is on solid financial ground and has zero debt. The new CEO, Maria Hawthorne has been hyper focused on employee retention and working to upgrade company culture. Understand that recognition is earned and not an entitlement. Be willing to ask questions and take on responsibilities outside of your normal day to day tasks. This shows you are engaged and looking for more growth. Managers will recognize this and give you more opportunities. Management would always prefer to promote from within the company than hire from outside. I'm excited to see where this company grows over the next 5 years.

    Cons

    PSB was experiencing high turnover under the former CEO, but I believe the new CEO, Maria has been working diligently to fix this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. Change doesn't happen overnight, but I believe we are moving in the right direction.

    Pros

    Promotion and opportunity is based on merit. It is also a company that will allow you to be moved from one department to another. You can go from leasing to property management and vice versa. The CEO started as an admin in corporate accounting and moved all the way to the top. The company listens to the concerns of the employees and is always trying to make this a better place to work.

    Cons

    The company has a history of performing above the market and this can lead to a lot of expectations to always outperform.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the employee engagement surveys. You listened and created change. It makes me feel like I'm contributing to the whole company.
