    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!
