I worked at ABM Industries full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Part of large organization with deep, vertical integration and sophistication.

Cons

Parking division is immaterial and gets slighted in support resources, disproportionate to its high risk.
Financial reporting systems are ineffective user-hostile byzantine labyrinths not designed for central control and monitoring of site operations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Set the tone at the top for ethical behavior. Put clients' interests before your own. Think beyond the current quarter results. At least pretend to care about the rank and file employees.

    Pros

    ABM provides its employees with good benefits at affordable prices, multiple opportunities to advance within the company, wonderful people to work with, and great clients. With the recent re-branding, ABM is helping even the front line employees to feel empowered, and to feel part of a unified team. The new Metropolis feature on the ABM website lets anyone see how all the parts of ABM fit together to provide a good place to work as an employee, and to to show clients what ABM can do for them.

    Cons

    lDue to the nature of facilities management, the starting wages for entry-level (hourly) employees are fairly low, and the cost of benefits can seem high in comparison. Also, many perks are location specific, so when an hourly employee transfers, they may lose some extra benefits (such as sick pay) if they are not provided at the new location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Benefits should be more uniform across the board.
