    I have been working at Abt Associates

    Pros

    Good work life balance, benefits have been improved and are more tailored to office location.

    Cons

    Many old timers who are unwilling to change and not many leaders willing to confront them about the lack of effort on thier part to help the company grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop allowing those people who have been at the company for many years and claim to be experts rule. The company isnt going to grow with dead wood.
