    Pros

    Like many large security companies, they are always seeking to fill security positions because of the ever "revolving" door.

    Cons

    No realistic chance for advancement opportunities. No additional continual training received after the initial required state and client training. Can not support your family based on the hourly rates. Many employees have a second and even a third job.There is a lack of meaninful communication between upper management and employees and the organization overall. ABM Security Services is just one division of ABM Industries. Other divisions include Janitorial (core division), Parking, HVAC, Electrical, Landscaping, Maintenance, Mechanical, and others. They do not specialize in security like other security companies so not all resorces are alocated solely to security.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more security training to security officers and superiors and foster a real environment of advancement opportunity. Raise the hourly rates of employees to a livable wage so employees don't have to take on two more jobs and report to work tired and you will be able to retain more employees who are loyal. Meet with your staff periodically to find out the real truth of what is going on within their assigned sites. Raise the bar in the hiring standards. Most of all, thank your employees for doing a good job (when warranted), it will go a long way with your staff.

    Pros

    Most of the people were nice and in general the atmosphere was pleasant enough. It was interesting to learn about the different services ABM offered.

    Cons

    It was difficult to figure out exactly what senior management wanted and whether their expectations were realistic. Management did not seem to appreciate opinions that differed from their own.
