I worked at Abt Associates full-time for more than a year

Pros

The pay and benefits were well considering they are a smaller organization. The company also provided a great deal of work flexibility.

Cons

It was very difficult to be a telecommuter employee, you almost seemed at if you were a contractor and not an actual employee. There was a very confusing process for promotions and standards. When the current contract ended you were not even considered for other internal opportunities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better communication with telecommuter staff members.

    I have been working at Abt Associates part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Talented staff, many different projects, and has managed to be successful over the past several years even while competitors have foundered

    Cons

    Many staff, especially junior staff, have challenges finding adequate coverage when the projects they are hired for end. Need a better labor management system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to retain talented junior staff -- and find opportunities for them to expand their skill sets and not just serve as glorified administrative assistants.

    I have been working at Abt Associates full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Highly professional, good people, interesting projects. Good work-life balance

    Cons

    Some top people are very smug and not as smart as they think, they like to hear themselves talk and have fairly poor management skills

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A key thing is getting oneself on good projects, and how that happens is fairly opaque. It seems like the process should be more open. Also, there is a big company-wide push to be more interdisciplinary and global, but the divisions are fairly insular.
