    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance, great culture, exciting technology. As a software engineer, you have so much opportunity for growth and learning here. Everyone is willing to help each other out, within and across teams. Technology is a huge focus for the company and we're always given the resources we need to succeed. It's no surprise to me that we have hardly any turnover on our dev teams. I really enjoy coming to...

    Pros

    You get to set your own task load during the day and the coworkers are all top notch and nice

    Cons

    Micromanaging has become a little more prevalent than it used to be. As a publicly traded company, there seems to be a greater and greater drive to increase profit through gilding the lily.

    Pros

    You never see your district manager. So if you want to be able to do as you want this is the company for you.

    Cons

    Poor pay for the expectations, they more than likely will start you between $9-13. This company does not care about its associates. Site managers and ASM make this company and if we all quit this company would be screwed. Company needs to realize this. Unless you are a site manager you will drive anywhere from 5 to 45 miles to get to work with very little notice. Trying to schedule a doctor's appt is probably...

    Advice to Management

    Fix the upper management. And pay your associate's that actually make the money for this company. Stop forcing associates to sell your insurance. Fix your secret shop process. Stop the favoritism in this company. Promote people who actually deserve and want to promote.

    Pros

    I have been with ESS for almost 2 years and there isn't 1 thing I don;t enjoy about my job. The company treats you very well and the people I work with are exceptional. I have never worked for a company that cared so much about me.

    Cons

    I do not have any cons at this time.

    Advice to Management

    I would highly recommend a position with any part of our organization.

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

    Pros

    I would say the hours, but not having two days off in a row ever is terrible.

    Cons

    Inconsistent policies. No one follows the same rules, so customers are constantly being told different things. Upper management do not care whether you are happy as long as you show up. No one checks in or stops by to see how things are going. You are on your own to figure things out. They promise you growth, but really they just want to rush you through training so that you could get right to work. They do not care whether...

    Advice to Management

    Check in with your employees and find out how they are doing. Working alone for days and weeks at a time is stressful. Also, it is a security risk because people sneak into the building a all the time. Telling employees to call the cops everyday does not fix the problem. If something happens the company will not care because all they care about is the bottom line. Stop telling people the company cares about its employees...
