A supportive, but competitive group of socially-conscious and research oriented consultants

Analyst (Current Employee)
Cambridge, MA

I have been working at Abt Associates full-time for more than a year

Pros- Working on socially and politically relevant issues
- Team-based work provides opportunities to do different kinds of work and work with different people
-Generous benefits and compensation
-Supportive, relaxed environment, flexibility/ work-life

Cons- Culture of self-advocacy (put yourself out there for opportunities to be exposed to different work)
-Focus on admin tasks at more junior levels; heavy dependence on senior researchers to do substantive research and client development
-Intensive evaluations

Advice to Senior ManagementOffer broader, more substantive opportunities to Master's level (and Bachelor's level) staff and allow for more flexible performance reviews depending on job responsibilities

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
