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

    Pros

    Decent benefits overall. And most of the non-management people are good people. Just working hard like everybody else.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't do a good job of communicating with employees or their customers. Company doesn't want to spend money where it's needed. Always looking for the cheap way out. Pay scale is LOW. Don't expect to be happy here if you're looking for $$$

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate better with your customers and take better care of your employees and maybe you'll keep more good workers and stop losing accounts.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits.
    Some departments are able to work from home.

    Cons

    Very poor processes and procedures.
    The leaders have ZERO leadership abilities. They have many VP's that travel allot, to do what no one knows.
    Forget trying to take a vacation, unless you are a VP.
    No work/life balance at all. You work every day and weekends.
    Employees are very under appreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to selling cars. You are all Terrible managers.

    Pros

    The type of job you do they offer ok benefits

    Cons

    You have to join the union (Teamsters911) and pay union dues every month for no reason because the union doesn't help the employees when they in need, the pay is cheap for what you do and put up with, management sucks and they power trip all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean management cause they are the problem, pay more attention to what employees have to say.
