        The Abt Advantage is that it is really a great place for a mid-level researcher or for the junior analyst. Abt wins interesting contracts and has the ability to do meaningful work. Opportunities to practice what you learned in school or entry jobs can be applied here and you can really hone and grow professionally your technical skills.


        Abt is NOT a company for more senior researchers. More often than not senior researchers are sitting on the 'bench' looking for work. They are not utilized effectively for anything other than business development, because they proclaimed to be 'too expensive' to be put on a contract. There is a high requirement for the percent time spent on billable work but without being given contract roles it is hard to achieve that billable work expectation. Further, they have recently undergone a reorganization that has isolated researchers from their area of expertise and sphere of influence.
