Low employee morale
Web Administrator (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCNovember 26, 2017
New CEO will hopefully help boost morale; has already shown some improvements on policy and structure. Many years of poor executive management caused low morale and not enough focus on employee retention.

Data Quality Specialist (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCJune 1, 2012
A typical day at ABA was for the most part calm and professional.
I became computer savvy by having the opportunity to learn various
software programs, i.e. MicroSoft Office, APTIFY, SharePoint,
and HTML.
Co-workers were professional, knowledgeable and personable.
The hardest part of the job was traveling from PG County to DC five
day-a-week.
The most enjoyable part of the job were/are the co-workers and
learning opportunities.
