    I have been working at Public Storage full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    My tenure here at Public Storage has been extremely rewarding. The company has a winning business model thanks to its progressive thinking and amazing leadership. Your individual success and growth is based on pure merit. Co-workers are collaborative and compensation is fair and competitive. There are very few companies that can boast of the stability Public Storage offers. It's been a gratifying journey thus far and I only see great things for Public Storage in the future.

    Cons

    There are none that I can think of. It is a fast paced environment and with growth comes change; one needs to be flexible and be willing to adapt to change.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with all that you've been doing!

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

    Pros

    I consider myself very fortunate to have found Public Storage. The people are wonderful, the work is challenging, and the company is on solid financial footing. I'm amazed by the tenure of the employees I interact with every day. So many people have 10, 20, 30+ years with the company. That really says something!

    Cons

    Being a new person in a company with so many employees with long tenure can be tough at times, but the people are very welcoming and collaborative.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, no complaints here!

    Frequent business process changes that are done without to much planning. Great opportunities but requires someone to be flexible and adaptable.

    I worked at Public Storage full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great peers and coworkers. The Glendale building is clean, but dated. Plenty of outdoor parking.

    Cons

    Public Storage seems to appreciate their employees with donuts and bagels. However, other perks have been slowly taken away. This would be from the period I was there of 2011 to 2013. I've heard it may be worse as employees I know there are finally jumping ship. No places to eat within walking distance (short), but you can walk like a mile to get some Del Taco.

    Pros

    Leadership and management here are amazing, they are willing to assist. I can't say enough good things about this company and its team.

    All the employees are intelligent, fun to work with, and passionate about their work. I think this is the most significant factor that makes a great place to work.

    Cons

    Nothing that I can think of.

    I have been working at Public Storage (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Its a ok job for students or moms looking for a little extra income. The other property managers are great. The District mangers really try to do the best that they can but in alot of things their hands are tied.

    Cons

    The thing is that this company does not pay enough for someone to survive paying their bills.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people more so they can survive. They work hard for this company.

    Pros

    Compensation is decent, and stability is very good. Quite a lot of people with 20+ years on board.

    Cons

    Lack up upward mobility. Lack of cohesion among mid-level management. Department heads seem to be working to expand their legacies, not improve the business. Benefits are there, but you'll pay a hefty premium. Perks? Not really. Only three company holidays per year.

    Bottom line, CEO is an accountant, and it shows. Anything and everything to drive shareholder value.

    Advice to Management

    $1B Net income last year. Would it really kill stock prices to restore some employee perks? You've already had to weather the ire of the Rose Parade float and the insurance premium increase. Could you at least pretend to like your employees and want to do nice things for them?
