Chief Engineer (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CASeptember 29, 2016
I have worked for ABM for 19+ years and they have always been fair. I think they balance employment and customer as well as anyone. Customer service is challenging and ABM does a nice job helping.

Great experience
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PASeptember 27, 2016
A typical work day consisted in being on time and performing your duties to the best of your abilities.

I learned how a work place should function for someone in the field of safety.

Management was very understanding of how to operate between client satisfaction and employee relations.

Co-Workers were great to work with.

Providing assistance to situations that fall outside the normal boundaries of the security field to ensure safety is a number one priority.

The best part of the job was the satisfaction of job completion by the end of the day.
Pros
Location, environment, people, etc.
Cons
None
