    I have been working at Abt Associates

    Pros

    Abt has some fantastic people. There are lots of Ivy's and top MBA and MPA/MPP programs represented. The work is interesting and Abt tends to pay better than it's competitors. The hours are also good because most of the projects are fairly long-term. Abt's focus on combining research with project management seems to be winning it a lot of contracts.

    Cons

    Hiring and personnel issues pose some real challenges. Some projects are flush with funding but have not hired nearly enough staff to perform at their best. A lot of PhDs are in management and some of them are really fantastic minds but not very practical managers.

    I have been working at Abt Associates

    Pros

    diverse research company with the potential for global impact

    above average company 401K contribution, multiple investment options

    regular performance reviews with employee contribution options

    Cons

    workload is inconsistent with company's professed notion of work/life balance

    strong emphasis on productivity, without (at times) an adequate provision of staffing or resources

    training can be poorly timed, lacking in forethought and/or clarity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    provide multiple options for confidential feedback to the larger organization

    monitor division attrition rates for indicators of needed company response

    increase availability of healthy organizational initiatives outside of main corporate offices
