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
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
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.
Switch Technician (Current Employee), Oklahoma City, OK – May 5, 2014
A great company to work for, they are on par with salary and benefits and they have a "hands-off" management style. As long as you take care of business and do what you need to do they don't bother you.

Mobile Worker (Current Employee), Tredegar, WLS – March 31, 2014
Pros: great co-workers
Cons: hard working hours
A typical day in work would include making up flat packed boxes using the correct box and label for each specific order then filling the boxes with correct product, then pelleting the boxes for forklift transportation. Checking the product specification is within tolerance every hour. Also having knowledge of working various machines. I have learnt – more... to work well in a team based environment, how to use the various machines required and also how to use the tools required for the job. Management was of a high standard with a good enthusiasm and knowledge towards the job, deadlines were always met and the company was very well run. My co-workers were very friendly and welcoming to new workers they were very helpful and made it a fun and enjoyable place to work. The hardest part of the job for me was the hours, it was 8 hour shift based worked with double backing once a week, however I soon got used to these work hours and it became a lot easier and natural for me. Most enjoyable part of the job was the people I worked with, we all got along very well and it made it a pleasure to go to work. – less
