    I have been working at Abt Associates full-time (more than 3 years)


    Get to work on a range of topics within your division; Most staff are really smart, interesting, kind people; Work-life balance does really matter here, especially during family illness or if you are a parent; Let junior staff really prove themselves


    No room to negotiate your salary once you start; A few older/lazier/sexist staff members need to be fired post-haste; labor planning can be challenging - some weeks you will work 35 hours and others you will work 60.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire people who are an HR nightmare waiting to happen; invest in junior staff who want to code (even if it is expensive in the short-run); Provide better vision care!

    Interview Details

    I had a referal who passed along my resume, and then was asked to apply online to get into the system. I got an interview about a month and a half later. The interview was with my two direct managers. They asked very basic questions about my past experiences, and how I would deal with certain situations.

    They offered me the position (2 months later).
