    The employees/peers and the customers were Great!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThey have (when I worked there) many very nice and helpful employees and also, I found the customer's within the markets that I called on to be great.

    ConsJust timing (I was there at the onset of the recession...very bad timing).

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone. I don't advise management (they wouldn't listen to me anyhow).

    I truly valued my employment and position at ABM and regret that I was laid off.

    Regional Account Manager (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsABM provides its employees with autonomy to perform their job in a way that fits their own personal way of doing business. I enjoyed being given the independence to control my own performance and success which enabled me to be at 97% to plan (when the company as a whole was 71% to revenue goal) when I was laid off.

    ConsI found that while ABM had the right intentions (to be successful and profitable as a relatively new company) the leadership and management team lacked the ability to put a plan in place to achieve success and see it through. Their "throw it at the wall and see what sticks" approach created feelings of uncertainty and insecurity company wide.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI appreciate the leadership and management team's ability to hire talent from many different backgrounds and feel that it makes for a diversified company with opportunities to learn from peers. Keep it up!

    Great Place to work, as long as you work hard

    National Sales Manager (Current Employee) Madison, WI

    ProsABM is a good place to work but you have to be self-sufficient and motivated.

    -Laid back atmosphere
    -Possibility to make EXCELLENT starting wage
    -Excellent benefits package
    -Opportunities for travel
    -Coworkers are helpful and eager to teach

    Cons-Training is poor, you have to be good at learning on the fly and have a natural ability to work in this atmosphere.
    -Some sales people are caddy and dramatic, but don't bother you if you don't bother them
    -Management will come down on you hard if you are not doing your job

    Advice to Senior ManagementSeek out employee feedback more often

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
