I worked at Abt Associates full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Collegial, strong technical & project management staff. Strong commitment to technical excellence.

Cons

Bit of a disconnect between corporate hierarchy & Board and rank and file. As company in many lines of work, it is tough to manage & lacks a thematic center or anchor.

    I have been working at Abt Associates part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Talented staff, many different projects, and has managed to be successful over the past several years even while competitors have foundered

    Cons

    Many staff, especially junior staff, have challenges finding adequate coverage when the projects they are hired for end. Need a better labor management system.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to retain talented junior staff -- and find opportunities for them to expand their skill sets and not just serve as glorified administrative assistants.

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

    Pros

    Highly professional, good people, interesting projects. Good work-life balance

    Cons

    Some top people are very smug and not as smart as they think, they like to hear themselves talk and have fairly poor management skills

    Advice to Management

    A key thing is getting oneself on good projects, and how that happens is fairly opaque. It seems like the process should be more open. Also, there is a big company-wide push to be more interdisciplinary and global, but the divisions are fairly insular.
