Pros

Having worked at Aberdeen for several years a laundry list of pros can be written. To keep things short these are the top five pros of working at Aberdeen:
- A no a**hole environment. Great people and not a lot of egos. No one is fighting over leads either
- Great product. Top notch deliverable that drive results
- Smart management. Very intelligent yet open to new ideas
- Flexibility
- Sell to the best and brightest of the B2B tech world. Provides a crash course in new industries
During my time at Aberdeen management has supported my professional growth, been open to new ideas, and forgive me for mistakes. This is truly a great place to work.

Cons

Not many cons but they are important. Aberdeen's parent company can be a bit sluggish in providing resources and tie up management. Right now the team is very new and a lack of managing heads exists. Operational support has lagged in the past but that has changed of late.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue on the current path and good luck hiring good new people.

    Pros

    - Work/Life Balance cannot be beat
    - People are talented and care about their jobs
    - You will be promoted based on your performance
    - Increased focus on developing/retaining talent in 2013
    - Culture is evolving and improving all the time
    - Open door policy -- all of the management is approachable and willing to listen
    Some of the reviews on here are honest -- but what was true five - seven years ago does not hold true for today's Aberdeen. I feel valued & rewarded and I see my contribution all over this place. Our management team listens to our feedback and acts on it. I've already benefited from the increased focus on people this year - going to training and professional seminars.

    Cons

    - Changing environment
    - There are very few automated systems in place and it makes for laborious, human error-prone process sometimes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to your management team and trust that you have put the right people in place to deal with our plan moving forward. Also, respect that sometimes, the perception of our employees is the reality of their work life -- that matters a lot.

    I have been working at Aberdeen Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Smallish company = room for growth
    -Management prefers/proven to promote from within
    -Intelligent and fun colleagues
    -Positive work environment
    -Convenient office location/free shuttles from the office to North station and South Station that run frequently though out the entire day
    -Opportunities to travel

    Cons

    My main concern is a lack of communication between departments

    Otherwise my cons are minimal and more personal:
    -Workforce is mainly 30's - 50's, smaller group of 20-somethings
    -My cubicle is always cold! And so is Boston...
    -Not enough refrigerator space
