    Pros

    Still looking for them - none so far

    Cons

    Lack of leadership, accountability and team work mentality. They let all the good employees go and keep the bad apples employed. Salaries are bellow the standard comp analysis, no training provided or support from management.

    Advice to Management

    Provide training to everyone to ensure that the performance is at maximum and that everyone works as a team.

    Pros

    The company has been in business for years.

    Cons

    The fraud is rampant in the company. If you are unwilling to violate your ethics this is not the company for you. There are numerous examples of reportable ethics violations by their management. Everyone is some for of VP. Controllers and mid tier management cook the books on a regular basis. A number of employees are pulling together data to report to the SEC the violations they have noted. If looking for a job here be cautious as they are a good candidate to be bought out and totally gutted...too top heavy.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your board. Tell them you have some rogue factions in you company. Tell them that you are unable to move due to unskilled employees in key management positions. After that do something about it...until then fraud will continue to run rampant in the organization.

    Pros

    The hiring process was expedited quickly.

    Cons

    A Manager will only be hired and placed at a location in order to be accountable for past failures at any building site. The blame/fixing the process for any issues should always be placed on the shoulders of the entire Management Team, not just an OS Manager - "Plausible Deniability" by upper Management

    Advice to Management

    When an OS Manager fails, the entire team fails, not just the OS Manager. Need more support at each OS location. Promising faults hope to customers from past failures will not gain the respect or confidence needed to secure an account. This Sacramento office went from 1 million a year to 400,000 a year. Many issues need to be fixed by changing the process. Starting from an upper level.. Experienced OS Managers need a voice, not just following protocol from failed directives

    Pros

    NOTHING AT ALL!!! THIS COMPANY IS THE WORST PLACE TO WORK FOR!!!! ALL YOU CAN LOOK FORWARD TO IS CLOCKING OUT!!!! OR NEVER RETURNING!!!

    Cons

    The manager that's supposed to be there to make sure everything is running smoothly is never there. If you have no self respect for yourself you sleep your way to the top in order to get just a single cheap little chump change raise. The manager is a pervert and tries to hit on employees and others. They want you to do tons of work with little pay. Your checks are always missing money and they don't care. The employees are lazy as ever and don't do their proper work therefore things get left for you to do yourself. They're unappreciative of their employees and don't do anything for the holidays or just say thank you for everything you do nothing. The manager disappears months and months at a time and when you have a issue you never get a response. It's full of drama, lies and everything else in between. You don't get paid holidays sick leave nothing! The company just overall sucks. Never chose this company. I would rather work with trash trucks then work for this half company!!!!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    STOP BEING SO RUDE AND DISRESPECTFUL LYING ALL THE TIME!!! START PICKING UP YOUR PHONES WHEN EMPLOYEES NEED YOU!!!!!!!!!!!! AND STOP GIVING PEOPLE WHO YOU CAN SLEEP WITH RAISES !!! GIVE IT TO THE ONES WHO COME TO WORK AND SHOW UP ON TIME ETC AND DO A GOOD JOB

    I have been working at ABM Industries full-time

    Pros

    Great work life balance. There are still some good people left.

    Cons

    The most toxic place to work for. The leadership has no ethics and morals. HR is nonexistent. People work in fear and if they speak up they'll be escorted out along with a severance package to buy their silent. Executives compensating themselves in millions while the true workers are on minimum pay wage.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the façade and truly start caring for your employees.

    Pros

    Weekends off and paid holidays only when you been there a year. Get paid weekly

    Cons

    No sick leave. No advancement. Top pay $9.00 for very physical labor. Company does not care at all about employees. If your sick n have to miss work you lose a day of pay

    Advice to Management

    Need to care more about employees
    Need to have more advancement opportunities. Need to pay your employees more per hour. Need to have better benefits as well
