    Pros

    I worked as a contractor to the State Department and was paid by ABBTECH for one year. I'm thankful that I could continue my job with State and I received a pay raise when I signed on with ABBTECH. + Decent benefits + Paid weekly through direct deposit + 4 weeks of PTO (2 a piece for vacation and sick, although you can use them however you wish) + Pretty good health insurance through Kaiser Permanente + The liaison to ABBTECH and State was extremely helpful in navigating the contract negotiating process

    Cons

    - Because I worked under a contract with the State Department, I was only going to work with ABBTECH for one year - No 401(k). Because of the high turnover of contractors, ABBTECH apparently doesn't need to offer any sort of incentive to stay with the company for longer than the contract's duration - ABBTECH is similar to many small companies in the DC area that charge the government as much as it can and pay its contractors as low as it can to maintain a healthy profit margin. It views its employees as costs to consider rather than resources to invest in, hence the large turnover - Being a contractor and an on-site employee, it's easy to feel detached from ABBTECH

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to better engage and keep your on-site employees and offer a 401(k)!

    Pros

    It is east to get hired especially for external temporary positions.

    Cons

    You will be considered a disposable asset. You are only as valuable as the money you make for them.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps they should consider why they have a poor reputation.

    Pros

    WTF I guess they were there.

    Cons

    They told me they no longer need me the day before my assignment . I prepared for three weeks and numerous hours paperwork and a drug test. They made that whole process very difficult too as well as time -entry for payment. Now they have all of my personal information . Companies like this need to dissolve from within from within from their own idiosyncrasy.

    Advice to Management

    Get a real job.

    Pros

    Compensation easily increased. Mobility in compensation totally dependent on billing, so if times are good, you can make a lot of money. If you land on a successful team/there is work to do, you will have success if you try. The best thing is you get paid for exactly the hour you work, so if you chose, work/life balance can be very nice.

    Cons

    Cut-rate benefits. Majority of staff anticipated to leave within a year.. Nothing for retirement whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Don't show favorites. Offer competitive benefits and salary. Spread the wealth.
