I have been working at Abt Associates full-time

Pros

- Mostly good colleagues
- Interesting work (sometimes)
- Fairly flexible
- Nice office
- Senior management is good

Cons

- Some senior level people are obnoxious bullies
- Need be fairly aggressive about marketing yourself internally to get on good projects (i.e. not the ones with the obnoxious senior staff)
- Promotion policies are opaque
- The annual review process is bad

Advice to Management

The organization is mostly good, but the bullies need to be reined in.

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

    Pros

    -interesting work
    -Very smart and nice colleagues
    -Work can be fulfilling and you can make a difference
    -Some managers are very good at giving you room to grow

    Cons

    -management says one thing for compliance reasons, but expects the opposite for billing reasons.
    -try's to be a small company, but struggles because it is actually a large one
    -growth is undirected and their needs to be more structure and coordination of what the company is trying to do.

    Advice to Management

    -Good economists and doctors don't always make the best managers. Keep technical experts doing technical work and not running projects and the company
