    I have been working at Extra Space Storage full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I really have enjoyed working here at Extra Space. I love the culture and how supportive the management is. They truly want you to succeed and they will help you along the way. There is opportunity for growth. They have a lot of fun events and department activities. You can tell they care about each employee.

    Cons

    With an accounting department of nearly 90 people they need to start offering other options for working besides just on a desktop. To be competitive they need to offer more flexibility. They should allow their employees to work flex schedules and give them laptops to work from home on some days. This will also solve their issue of running out of office space. Also the benefits are expensive compared to other places that I have worked. They should offer cheaper health insurance.

    I have been working at Extra Space Storage full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is a great job and company to start out at if you just graduated and want to get into the accounting field. You gain a lot of accounting from this job.

    Cons

    I feel like the job is moving away from accounting and more of helping resolve issues at the sites. There is no growth in the company if you want to stay in accounting. No opportunity to work remotely they just keep adding more accountants and shoving us closer together. The company also strives on work and life balance, but I don't see it. If you want to learn more things you end up staying late and forget taking more than a few days off. You will just get criticized for taking more than a day at a time off. Most people hit their accrual cap and have to take a random day off. However, it is not like the company gives any great time off benefits anyways.

    Pros

    Working here at Extra Space Storage is a great place to work. They allow for a flexible schedule, and a good work/life balance. The environment is very friendly and laid back (no micro managing). It has a feeling of family.

    Cons

    They like to promote the younger employees, and I feel they don't appreciate the more "seasoned" people and their years of service when it comes to promotions.

    I worked at Extra Space Storage full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Hmmmmmm some coworkers and free coffee and soda

    Cons

    Too many to get into again just to have the review deleted so why bother. Oh well besides stay away from the horrible Accounting snakes!! The company only keeps the ones that sound so awesome. This really only happens because they have new employees in the first week write a review!! Of course a new employee is going to love it there will all the empty promises they hear. Trust me within a year if not sooner they will have a different review. But then again if you are a whistle blower they just get rid of you so be careful!!
