Pros

ABM provides its employees with autonomy to perform their job in a way that fits their own personal way of doing business. I enjoyed being given the independence to control my own performance and success which enabled me to be at 97% to plan (when the company as a whole was 71% to revenue goal) when I was laid off.

Cons

I found that while ABM had the right intentions (to be successful and profitable as a relatively new company) the leadership and management team lacked the ability to put a plan in place to achieve success and see it through. Their "throw it at the wall and see what sticks" approach created feelings of uncertainty and insecurity company wide.

Advice to Management

I appreciate the leadership and management team's ability to hire talent from many different backgrounds and feel that it makes for a diversified company with opportunities to learn from peers. Keep it up!

    ABM is a good place to work but you have to be self-sufficient and motivated.

    -Laid back atmosphere
    -Possibility to make EXCELLENT starting wage
    -Excellent benefits package

    -Training is poor, you have to be good at learning on the fly and have a natural ability to work in this atmosphere.
    -Some sales people are caddy and dramatic, but don't bother you if you don't bother them
    -Management will come down on you hard if you are not doing your job
