    I worked at Abt Associates full-time (Less than a year)


    Abt Associates is involved in some of the most gratifying work around the world. Their mission is to "Improve the quality of lives and economic well-being of people around the world". They support the people who need it the most and have an impact that is hard to not get behind. Employee owned. Huge promoter of work-life balance and telecommuting.


    This company is pretty frugal when it comes to spending money on equipment like laptops, and holiday events (no open bar, just one drink ticket and no guests). Any happy hours or events are mostly imitated and paid for by the employees who make the decision to socialize outside of work.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your employees. Abt has stripped more and more away from employees, I would like to see a return to where Abt was years ago when company perks included more than just a paycheck and general benefits.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Abt Associates (Cambridge, MA).


    I was referred into the company by one of the clients of the company. Had to interview with supervisor and President of company. This interview and my position with the company was many years ago. The interview experience was ok.
