Best Place to Work - Commercial Maintenance Field

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at ABM Industries full-time for more than 5 years

ProsLocal management is fair and very informative. There are always job placements and they always need oncall staff to fill in at their many accounts. Great for people who need part time jobs and extra money.

ConsWish corporate would give more to recognize the field workers more.

A company that cares about its employees, clients, and bottom line.

Office Coordinator (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

I have been working at ABM Industries full-time for more than 3 years

ProsABM provides its employees with good benefits at affordable prices, multiple opportunities to advance within the company, wonderful people to work with, and great clients. With the recent re-branding, ABM is helping even the front line employees to feel empowered, and to feel part of a unified team. The new Metropolis feature on the ABM website lets anyone see how all the parts of ABM fit together to provide a good place to work as an employee, and to to show clients what ABM can do for them.

ConslDue to the nature of facilities management, the starting wages for entry-level (hourly) employees are fairly low, and the cost of benefits can seem high in comparison. Also, many perks are location specific, so when an hourly employee transfers, they may lose some extra benefits (such as sick pay) if they are not provided at the new location.

Advice to Senior ManagementBenefits should be more uniform across the board.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
