    I have been working at Public Storage full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Good hours and work independently

    Cons

    No in house promotions, no incentives, no bonuses, no where to go once you're a property manager.

    Advice to Management

    Give something for employees to work toward. There is zero appreciation for all the over and above that goes on in every district. Huge salary discrepancy between property workers and district managers.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Public Storage full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Most buildings have no heat or cooling. As a district manager, cutting locks, taking inventory, and inspecting storage buildings is grueling work. Safety of their employees is of no concern to upper management.
