Former Employee - Senior District Manager

I worked at ABM Industries full-time (more than a year)

Pros

benefit package was good, networking through corporation was helpful. Some individuals were exceptional folks to work with. They were at the branch level and upper management. They had a very nice marketing package allowing business development to come easier when presenting service offers.

Cons

The structure administratively heavy, training needed improvement. Expectations were high with not much concern for real support. Though I was not expected to work long hours, I felt the job required the time to bring service and operations to my level of expectation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

connection and communication with middle management could be enhanced

    Pros

    The company is so large that once you are settled in and if you need more hours there are plenty of locations where they can send you. Management is detached to the point where they hardly observe your performance, good for you, bad for the company.

    Cons

    Company and management speak of "advancement opportunities" but merit is overlooked when such opportunities are available.
    Pay is low, good luck getting any type of raise even if you do a great job.
    Management shows lack of judgement for promoting/keeping inept and apathetic supervisors who are unorganized, uninformed, and do as little as possible to maintain their title.
    High turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The lack of integrity in management reduces moral of good employees and deteriorates the performance of the team overall. Most of the employees see this as a dead end job where only the friends of management will move up and merit is overlooked especially when management is detached from on site operations.
