    Ich habe für mehr als ein Jahr bei Abt Associates gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    - Since Abt has a wide array of divisions and contracts, you can work on a variety of topics. In my two years there I researched everything from renewable energy financing to hospice care. - Well-trained, expert staff who are passionate about what they're researching.

    Kontras

    - Professional development opportunities for junior staff can really depend on the supervisor. There's not a strong internal system for developing talent, so be ready to take initiative yourself.

    Ich habe für mehr als 8 Jahre bei Abt Associates gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    *Very flexible work arrangements (telework, how one achieves one's 40-hour work week) *Excellent benefits package (including Metro and bicycle subsidies) *(Mostly) dedicated client-facing staff, who believe in the value and mission of their projects *(Modest) spot bonuses from appreciative supervisors

    Kontras

    *Received highest performance reviews, overshot sales goal for the year, kept a new contract running during a scandal with a new hire. Promotion? Never happened. Obviously contributions of front-line, client-facing staff are neither noticed nor valued. *In one of firm's domestic Divisions, specific practice areas were dissolved, resulting in uncoordinated decision making and overwhelmed staff. *Numerous... client-facing staff departures during past year, either voluntary or involuntary. *Inability to properly staff contracts, leading to performance issues. Labor planning/financial management of contracts in the dark ages. *Support services (contracts, finance, billing) continuously reinvent processes, adding to administrative bureaucracy. *No reconciliation between mandatory billable (i.e., contract) work and required non-billable (business development) work.

    Rat an das Management

    *Value your front-line, client-facing staff. Pay attention to what they are doing. *Stop reinventing administrative protocols. *Fix the labor planning/financial management issues. *Reconcile billable work with business development work for client-facing staff.

    Pros

    They recognize their significant turnover recently and are working really hard to change organizational issues to maintain retention. They rolled out many new internal training programs to provide additional learning opportunities for current staff. They are working towards being more transparent as well. New benefits around maternity leave have gotten better. They are extremely flexible and understanding of... working remotely and around family schedules, and it's been invaluable to have that flexibility.

    Kontras

    It's a challenging time to be at Abt. Of my own independent backhand numbers, this might not be accurate, 1/4 of the Division of Health and Environment have left over the last year due to layoffs or resignation. Currently it's very nebulous who are the central leaders of practices, and there are barriers between feedback between lower level and upper level staff. Employees that are still in the division are very... burdened carrying the work of those who left.

    Rat an das Management

    There needs to be better, faster, and clearer feedback loops available for lower level staff to provide upper level staff feedback on their management, and vise versa of course. Many of us don't work with our supervisors, and it's challenging to then elicit feedback from them. Likewise, our PDs are being judged by their supervisors, instead of by the people they are managing.

    Pros

    I always enjoyed the remote work option and the tech that supported the capability.

    Kontras

    Leadership is utterly clueless. Painstakingly clueless. Middle management spends most of their time fighting for resources and explaining why their teams deserve to exist rather than doing meaningful work to advance the mission. It’s brutal. Abt is bleeding staff. All of the good ones are jumping ship and the others, the ones who either lack motivation or skills necessary to find other work are staying and... sinking with the ship. Run...run fast if you are considering a job here!

    Rat an das Management

    Step down and let real leaders run this place. The CEO is abysmal and is clueless to the core business of International Development.
