    I have been working at Abt Associates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    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.
