Abacus is a fine company with average benefits and work/life options depending on the particular contract you work on. The customer I work for is very important to the country as it's key functions is to attract investment in natural resources as well as to collect royalties for these resources, bringing in the largest amount of money to the federal government second only to the IRS. Supporting their mission is fulfilling however the customer is not always reasonable in their demands.
DOI is important to the country
It's a contract with the government and always has an end date
The company's leadership and culture are phenomenal. I'm glad I had the opportunity to work for Abacus and the mission they support. The personnel w/in the company value one another and are supported by the corporate leadership through training, salary increases, and other perks.
Awesome Culture, fair salary, great benefits, Awesome leadership
The job was great. I enjoyed speaking with the clients that came in for information about the new houses (what little I could give them). I enjoyed being a help to the Sales Staff.
The days and hours I worked were great.
This assignment was really far from my home.
It is good for those who have low education criteria.my job is not related to my educational background.so i am not satisfyedwith my current job.Thats why i am seeking for better oppertunity.
Good for part time jobs
Not a healthy job culture
I was employed by the company 6 years ago in Southern MD. The pay was horrible, there were no pay increases, and the company has taken over all non-cert jobs for the school system. All non-cert jobs took a pay decrease. Couldn't survive living off of the pay Abacus provided. I left to continue pursuing my education while working a different full time job. I won't return to the public schooling as long as Abacus stays around, under-paying their employees.
Company low balled the contract bid so they could get contract, unprepared for the extensive overseas aspect. Poor communication with overseas personnel. they are not open and transparent when communicating offers. Management offers extremely vague answers to simple questions. HR Department seems inept or out of their depth with current contract. Extremely difficult to communicate with HR, they seem annoyed when issues are presented. No clear communication. They are more interested in their own commissions and incentives to keep the contract employees wages as low as possible. Will hire those with bare minimum skills in order to pay less. Very few real benefits.
Typical support contractor for the USAF. In my eyes, you are hired for a particular role. If someone within the AF, let us say in engineering, does not like you, then you will become a sacrificial lamb and be subjected to taunts and disrespect of the government engineering staff. Case in point, the chief engineer for one project I was working on, criticized me and said, "Oh you think you know more than the "so and so company." Well, I took this very offensively because I went through a very similar experience prior to this one and observed what the outcome was.
The job is a professional place to work. At times the load can be busy, but I can keep up with the pace. I've learned computer scanning with, and electric pallet jack. the most enjoyable part of the job is the coworkers, they make it easy and fun even doing stressful times.
The Abacus people I worked with supporting a DoD contract were living in fear of loosing their job. Work Environment - very subjective and somewhat hostile in that any push back on setting realistic delivery dates was not supported by management. Therefore, meaning the client has free reigns on setting unrealistic dates no matter how difficult the assignment.
Working for this company was a great experience. I was able to add to my skill set. The hardest part of this job was adjusting to the schedule. The most enjoyable part of working for this company was the team I worked with and the skills I learned.
