Decent

Associate (Current Employee)
Bethesda, MD

I have been working at Abt Associates full-time

Pros- Mostly good colleagues
- Interesting work (sometimes)
- Fairly flexible
- Nice office
- Senior management is good

Cons- Some senior level people are obnoxious bullies
- Need be fairly aggressive about marketing yourself internally to get on good projects (i.e. not the ones with the obnoxious senior staff)
- Promotion policies are opaque
- The annual review process is bad

Advice to Senior ManagementThe organization is mostly good, but the bullies need to be reined in.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
