I have been working at Abt Associates full-time (More than a year)
Abt offers excellent work/life balance. There is a strong emphasis on learning and the company makes it possible to grow through formal learning and through other options such as marketplace mobility which allows you to connect and learn from other departments. There is a lot of flexibility in terms of work schedule. I find that many of my colleagues telecommute at least once per week.
There is a strong emphasis on meetings, which may not be everyone's preferred method of communication. However, it is nice to connect with others that may work remotely through these meetings.
Advice to Management
Please ensure that top-down communication makes its way to all employees.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Abt Associates (Cambridge, MA) in July 2018.
I went through a series of interviews, first by the HR screener, then the people I'd be working with in the department, and its head. The whole thing lasted a few weeks, I was unfamiliar with them prior to applying; however, I asked around at the start of the process and really liked what I heard. 4 separate interviews, two on location on the same day.
