Great people and good balance.

Finance and Contracts Manager (Current Employee)
Bethesda, MD

ProsThe people at Abt are really nice and work really hard. Most truly believe in the work that we are doing.

ConsThe experience varies significantly depending on which division/department you work with and some management decisions are questionable.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't keep sr. staff if they are not performing as it really impacts the morale of other staff.
More time needs to go into the initial discussions of new systems to ensure they provide what is really needed.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
