    I have been working at ABM Industries full-time

    Pros

    Current Location is the best. Our group is dedicated to the training and development of its employees. At ABM employees seem to be a number.

    Cons

    Overall ABM HR Shared Services for employees is inefficient and not employee friendly.

    Advice to Management

    ABM Scott Salmirs is really the best. He is a dedicated CEO who wants to change the culture of ABM to a truly employee oriented culture. He needs to put a process in place that assures his management teams are doing the same.

    Pros

    If you have never written a proposal before this job will definitely help you learn quickly on your own. Lots of Salesforce training

    Cons

    No one really to get real training from, self-taught. May receive some management training but not enough. Your definitely thrown into the fire. Not a team feel environment

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

    Pros

    Decent salary and performance bonus. Regular and consistent change keeps it interesting. New executive leadership has a solid overall vision for the direction of the company.

    Cons

    Below industry standard benefits package. Culture is a real problem right now as the company is going through a major transition... a lot of politics and the loudest voice is assumed to be the correct one.

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful about your investments in technology. Current engagement with major consulting company has run it's course... cut bait and focus on finishing execution of what's on your plate before taking on more / shifting focus.

    I have been working at ABM Industries full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I can't speak for all of ABM, but my managers are very understanding, in general. I've gone through a lot of changes and roadblocks throughout my years as an employee and they've been supportive.
    Flexible scheduling
    Decent benefits that carry over even if you leave the company

    Cons

    While their door is always open, they do not take suggestions well. They think they know best, ALWAYS, yet lack the experience that we have in our particular position.
    For a while they were the Kings of micromanagement. It was insane.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the cons listed above
