    My experience with ABM was fast paced in an environment that changed daily.

    Senior District Manager (Former Employee)

    Prosbenefit package was good, networking through corporation was helpful. Some individuals were exceptional folks to work with. They were at the branch level and upper management. They had a very nice marketing package allowing business development to come easier when presenting service offers.

    ConsThe structure administratively heavy, training needed improvement. Expectations were high with not much concern for real support. Though I was not expected to work long hours, I felt the job required the time to bring service and operations to my level of expectation.

    Advice to Senior Managementconnection and communication with middle management could be enhanced

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Dead end street.

    Attendant (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsThe company is so large that once you are settled in and if you need more hours there are plenty of locations where they can send you. Management is detached to the point where they hardly observe your performance, good for you, bad for the company.

    ConsCompany and management speak of "advancement opportunities" but merit is overlooked when such opportunities are available.
    Pay is low, good luck getting any type of raise even if you do a great job.
    Management shows lack of judgement for promoting/keeping inept and apathetic supervisors who are unorganized, uninformed, and do as little as possible to maintain their title.
    High turnover rate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe lack of integrity in management reduces moral of good employees and deteriorates the performance of the team overall. Most of the employees see this as a dead end job where only the friends of management will move up and merit is overlooked especially when management is detached from on site operations.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Vision remains a vision, no execution

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThey have great forward thinkers with amazing ideas for conserving energy, building for a greener tomorrow and below competitive rates.

    ConsTheir ideas remain ideas and the management tree remains male-controlled with no forward thinking. There is no uniformity or communication between corporate and managed branches as to what the future visions actually are. Customer bids are to include all the forward-thinking innovations and green products, but none of that is communicated down to the executors, it is simply for customers' eyes. Often times, managers and staff are expected to give of their time and labor without compensation and threat of non-compliance lurking. The only advancement opportunities are for white males who run hispanic crews (legal or not), qualified or not.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFollow through with company vision and replace any management that is going about things in back-alley fashion instead of promoting them because they talk a good game.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
