    get little toll booths or some sort of protection for your employees that would help big time.

    Pros

    ABM Parking Services respond quickly to accidents to customer vehicles by their own employees. If at fault, the company claims 100% responsibility, unlike other parking services. (ABM Parking is a branch of ABM Industries)

    Cons

    Poor follow up to services in high end exclusive areas. Valet employees have a poor reputation for service and are rumored to be smoking pot while on the job in the parking garage. The company is 2 weeks slow to provide customers with rental cars when reimbursing owners of the vehicles they have damaged. Estimators are slow to assess vehicle damage. Poor management responses to customer requests or complaints. Should not be trusted to handle high end condo accounts. The company does not match the level of customer service of the clients they provide to.

    Advice to Management

    Follow up on client complaints. Adhere to company policy when damage to vehicles are over 5k. Employees should be let go in that case and should be no exception to the rule.

    Pros

    Great place to work, budgetary cuts forced a layoff. There was a great opportunity for growth as an account manager, to direct the Biomedical Engineering program. There was much opportunity for growth and direction.

    Cons

    Great place to work, budgetary cuts forced a layoff. The downside of the opportunity was that historically there was not as much support from regional direction as needed. Sometimes, there are some business associates (nursing leaders) that require additional support, senior representation, and direction.

    Advice to Management

    For senior ABM leadership - the investment in my position would have taken some time to realize the cost benefit, and there was a huge quality component to my work. Cutting salaries for immediate gain is not a strategic way to do business. Much of this business is about quality. Thanks!
