    Pros

    The company has a good benefits package and offers multiple discounts to employees, as well as competitive perks. There are great opportunities for career growth.

    Cons

    Opportunities for career growth aren't well-advertised - you have to search and apply. Markets are split into small districts, which means an opportunity for growth will more than likely require travel, or relocatoion. Also, for non-exempt hourly employees, some benefits are market-and-region specific, meaning vacation and sick time in one region may not apply in another.

    I have been working at ABM Industries as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Stable company, very diverse, great people. Definitely room for growth for hardworking individuals, but you can't come in expecting promotions quickly.

    Cons

    This is a massive company going through a 5 year reorganization so there is some turnover, uncertainty and a ton of change... with that comes some negatives, but in a 100,000+ person company that will always happen. Pay can be low depending on location and what other industries it's competing with, but it's a low margin

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, continue to hire good people and maintain them.
