Developmental Consultant (Former Employee), McLean, Va. – December 16, 2012
Pros: free parking
A great temp company. They look to your strengths and locate employers that need your subject matter expertise. The hardest part of the position is if contract is completed having to move to the next employer. The most enjoyable is when you complete the desired results and see implementation of standards and gols you helped define.
Production Line Worker (Former Employee), Tiverton, ENG – September 12, 2014
The work atmosphere was poor, boring and had no motivation as we spent hours doing dreary tasks. The pay was minimum, co-workers were not easily understandable and there was nothing good about that job.
Pick and Pack (Former Employee), Reynoldsburg, OH – September 11, 2014
I worked 36 hours at one place and another 36 hours at another ware house in a weeks time and Abacus staffing screwed up our payroll and tried to not pay me. I had to threaten to get a lawyer in order to finally get my check.
PACKAGE HANDLER (Former Employee), Avenel, NJ – September 1, 2014

Bar Staff / Chef (Former Employee), Scunthorpe – July 20, 2014
My days at work were always fun and exciting, this is typically because of the nature of work. I got to socialise with different clientele from all different walks of life. In this job I had to be very versatile. I really enjoyed working within the team at the Abacus, but I have decided that a full time job is what I need now I have left college. Management – more... were always fair and understanding. The most difficult part of the job was finishing late and starting early, although this was usually only weekends. – less
Deputy Program Manager / Operations Manager (Current Employee), Herndon, VA – May 26, 2014
Pros: doi is important to the country
Cons: it's a contract with the government and always has an end date
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 – more... government second only to the IRS. Supporting their mission is fulfilling however the customer is not always reasonable in their demands. – less
Human Service Assistant (Current Employee), Norfolk, VA – May 16, 2014
Working as a human services aid with the City of Norfolk has increased my overall experience with people. A typical day at work would involve scanning cases, checking client's statuses with SNAP, TANF or Medicaid. The hardest part of the job was hearing their circumstances but in every aspect I have helped.
