    Pros

    I think you are treated with respect, your supervisors can find work for you if you need it. The pay is exceptional and the people that you work with are very nice too.

    Cons

    overtime could be allowed once in awhile, sometimes you have to wait to get supplies. Other than that no real complaints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue to work with employees and find out if they are happy with their position with the company. Try to encourage people to think about career advancements. Maybe even have employee appreciation nights to show how you feel about the effort and work the employees are doing.

    I worked at ISS Facility Services

    Pros

    ISS used to be a great company to work for when they re entered the U.S. market in 2007. They HAD excellent management inherited from companys they aquired. Bonuses, merit increases and recognition USED to be given for performance.

    Cons

    Current ISS upper management techniques include but are not limited to; berating and attempting to intimidate employees, blaming subordinate employees for their own incompetence and overall dishonesty to employees and clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire professionals to lead divisions instead of scatter-minded people with emotional problems.

    I have been working at ISS Facility Services full-time

    Pros

    Some very talented individual employees, managers

    Cons

    Devoid of effective teamwork, engagement, and bilateral communication throughout U.S. organization. The life cycle narrative for the average administrative or management employee: 1. Employment offer and acceptance - optimism with such an encouraging culture for employee engagement and ownership; 2. Orientation [or lack thereof] - blaming employees for their negativity; 3. Normalcy - doubt accumulates action by action; 4. [false] Hope - corporate change fuels partial optimism; 5. #3 and #4 cycle repeatedly downward; 6. Acknowledgment - pessimism and acceptance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage diverse talent and knowledge through genuine dialogue and collaboration with regional personnel instead of with consistent parochial blindness and presumption; Accountability for management to be effective coaches and to provide constructive criticism to promote honesty and transparency

    Pros

    I'm employed and I have health insurance.

    Cons

    The management overall for almost every department is pathetic. They play favorites and take advantage of the good employees. The turn over is ridiculous. The employee morale is low and the overall communication is extremely poor. Lastly, there's very little accountability and the "Talent Box" review is a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your managers, get a more consistent policy regarding vacation and time off, and evaluate the managers' performances as well. Many times people are scared to express their concerns out of fear of losing their jobs... so they remain miserable and defeated.
