    Pros

    Quality training programs, good communication with immediate supervisor, consistant payroll, great benefits, Flexability between work sites, competitive saleries, employer sponsored dry cleaning.

    Cons

    Upper Management has little to no involvement with the operations of the company. From my point of view, my supervisors are not well supported in handling client's complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to know your customer and their needs, stay in communication to handle problems before it becomes too late. Improve quality on hiring floaters or Special Response Officers, seldom does the SRO have the caliber of the full time staff.

    Pros

    Outside of the Los Angeles office, ABM is an excellent company to work for. I have worked at various other branches and they have their act together, they are professional and are very concerned with meeting client needs and maintaining client relationships. Los Angeles Area Office, I would have to say has no understanding of building client relationship and often treat clients and it's officers assigned to accounts as little money-makers.

    Cons

    Again, working for any other Office than the Los Angeles Area Office is a pleasure and will be a positive experience. I strongly recommend not to work at the Los Angeles area office. Los Angeles Office does not promote a healthy work-environment and tends to be sexist in selecting senior staff members. In addition, clients are gained and lost daily, there is little client retention. If you are thinking of working as a Security Officer, apply elsewhere

    Advice to Management

    From my experience, Los Angeles needs allot of work to become successful again. They tend to place clients last and focus on the money aspect of each account. There is no client retention. I'm unsure how ABM Industries doesn't view their operational struggles and doesn't attempt to overhaul the senior staff. I would also recommend retraining the general staff in operational procedures; scheduling, payroll and account Management.
