    Former Employee - Operations Manager in Chicago, IL

    I worked at ABM Security Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Big company that always had support available.
    Always paid my staff and myself correctly and on time.
    HR issues were handled professionally.
    Plenty of mentors within my chain of command that helped me learn and grow as a manager.

    Cons

    Hard work and dependability can easily be overlooked.
    Advancement and promotions seemed to open and close on a weekly basis. Work is contingent on contracts won or loss, so a steady career is not something I felt ABM offered; understandably so though.
    Very big company that spends more time on boarding and then terminating bad employees, rather than acknowledging the good workers once in awhile.

    I worked at ABM Security Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Since A.B.M. is a huge, conglomerate company, it's provides plenty of opportunities for advancement. Benefits are amongst some of the best I've had.

    Cons

    Not an easy job, changes impact millions of users which can sometimes be very stressful. I had a 37 mile commute to my post (each way), so that ran up a lot of miles each way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase compensation somewhat.

    Pros

    its a job that pays

    Cons

    Pay is awful, no room for growth or raises. No benefits. Managers think they are running some major Govt operation and treat the associates like peons; yet they have awful communication, are rude, and unprofessional and always change up the rules and policies and overstep each other. Managers lie about what they have said. Turn over is HIGH. the young associates all hate the job and want something better and are actively looking. The manager at time or hire told me to be looking for something else-and he is one of the rude ones. .This should tell you to stay away from this company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something and stop acting like you are. Get organized and start communicating with each other and the associates.

    I have been working at ABM Security Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The Pro to having this job is that you can at least say YOU HAVE A JOB!

    Cons

    Payscale is poor. The Supervisors didnt seem to know what they were doing. They hired people on the spot just to fill spots not even give them a proper interview. Just wow you showed up, You start tonight. Bogus company to work for. One of the guards that I worked with drank on the clock and believe supervisors knew about it and did nothing about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some time into the people that you hire from entry level all the way to Management.

    Pros

    Just having a job that pays

    Cons

    Lack of communication. Not the best pay. Not stable.

    Pros

    Pay you for working, will leave you alone if you do a good job. The best part, if you land a good post, will be the interaction with the tenants.

    Cons

    No promotions, no raises other than union enforced.
