I worked at Abt Associates

Pros

Very professional atmosphere, mutual respect, family friendly, growing business, meaningful work with real world impact, wonderful colleagues, good benefits, and a great commute for me.

Cons

A siloed environment with deeply entrenched cultures. The warren of tiny individual offices can be impersonal. Too few opportunities for staff to bond outside their bubbles. Parking lot barely adequate, lots of long-term contract staff

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue breaking down those silos and unifying systems and cultures!

    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.
