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


    Good environment that is not internally competitive and people are hard-working but happy. You can feel good about working for this mission driven company. The employees are truly passionate about the work they do.


    Change is hard and the company is quite divided by division and practice area. Even if you have experience or interest in another area it is difficult to work on projects that are outside of your hired division

    Positive Outlook

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Abt Associates.

    Interview Details

    Preliminary contact by HR began one month after application was submitted. Teleconference interview was scheduled for the following week. Interview lasted about an hour. Panel consisted of 4 members of technical team. It was pretty straightforward. My HR contact was very responsive, prompt, readily available. They chose another candidate, and I was informed in one week.
    It was a pretty straightforward process. No problems.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were nontechnical. Hardest questions were the "list 3" types. Eg. list the 3 most important skills for this position. With a panel of 4, obviously, the answer will not please everyone.   Answer Question
