    I worked at Abt Associates full-time

    Pros

    Surrounded by very smart, talented, and (mostly) very kind folks. Doing work that can have a positive impact on policy and practice. Decent work-life balance though things get hectic during proposals or prior to deliverable due dates.

    Cons

    Working on soft money is challenging. You are always chasing new contracts. Your personal experience will depend greatly on the dept you work in and the senior staff person/people who support most often. Most are good.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Abt Associates (Cambridge, MA).

    Interview

    Lengthy interview process - takes about 4-5 hours. The difficulty level depends solely on the specific group that is hiring. Could be hard, could be very easy. The interview involved half an hour segments with multiple people.
