    I have been working at Abt Associates

    Pros

    Recently joined Abt to support proposal management. I made the right decision - my teammates are supportive, my supervisor is flexible and appreciates work/life balance. There are some long days but am able to telecommute regularly. Interview process was quick - I applied, was quickly contacted by a recruiter and within 3 weeks had a job offer. Perks: lots of company events and trainings to attend; gym onsite; telework

    Cons

    Under new leadership so some are frustrated with a new way of doing things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be transparent and continue to go after new work. Appreciate those working "behind the scenes" that may not be technical experts.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews - the first with an individual in an office, the second as a larger company event with multiple interviewers present.

    Both interviews were strictly "fit" interviews -- no technical questions were asked. The questions were all pretty standard:
    Describe yourself in a couple of sentences.
    What was a challenge you overcame?
    What are you hoping to do/gain at this company?
