    I worked at Extra Space Storage full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Life/work balance, decent pay, company stands by its values from executive leadership to entry-level positions. Customer service oriented.

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities are VERY limited, especially if you are over 40 years of age. They are now open on Sundays for four hours, so you either have your hours reduced to 36/week OR go in to work for four hours on your "day off". Hiring of external district management causes the teams to lose morale and slows production while the new DM goes through their learning curve.

    I have been working at Extra Space Storage full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Extra Space isn't just a job, its a lifestyle and an adventure! I've been with the company going on 11 years now, and most of everything I have learned in my professional life has been here with ESS. I love the culture, the team work, and the growth opportunities that come with company's growth. My peers have been supportive throughout the years and I can honestly say that I am who I am today because of what I have learned and how I have evolved while at ESS. I'm forever grateful!

    Cons

    We wear many hats at Extra Space Storage and it can be overwhelming at times. However this broad range of responsibilities help build character and humility while learning things we never thought we would learn.

    I have been working at Extra Space Storage full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Never come in to the same day twice and the customers are amazing. Most of the upper management really cares about the employees, and want to make a great work culture. I’ve been with ESS for more than 10 years and the growth has been amazing. We really are the best at getting better.

    Cons

    For me the work/home life is not balanced the way that I would like in order to hav me an influence with my child the way I would like. The pay is also ridiculous, and a multi billion dollar company like ESS should really pay more and for the long term employees we are only now making what people just being hired are making which is again ridiculous. For ESS to continue to grow and have the talent it needs the pay will have to be addressed immediately.
