    The benefits at BAH cover just about everything you can imagine. The life insurance benefits are great. Other benefits are discounted greatly.

    401k used to be the best around. Now it is a simple employer matching that is standard anywhere, including the federal government. This was basically a 5 percent salary cut. This was bad enough, but then the healthcare plans became drastically more costly. This is the fault of our healthcare laws, not Booz Allen though.

    Worst thing is in 2015 benefit plan coverage and options changed for the worst. Coverage cost are higher now for families. For non partner members in the firm, the increase in cost impacts the bottom line and take home pay of the rank and file staff.

    Nothing special since the Carlyle takeover... Lost a couple of vacation days and floating holidays, 401k reduced from 10% to 6%, and health insurance moved to high-deductible plans (Kaiser option still available however). All things considered the benefits package is similar to other large contracting companies.

    paid time off is okay

    Pay is not as much as professional peers, and used to be made up by great ECAP (profit sharing plan), roughly 105 of salary each year, but has since been scrapped.

    Competitive retirement/financial benefits amongst similar organizations.

    Benefits have degraded over the years to become mediocre. There are a lot of interesting insurance options to buy into, but the health care change this past year has been a real blow. In 2014 we had excellent insurance. Come 2015 they changed to a Consumer plan with high deductable that puts the burden entirely on the employees.

    There used to be a profit sharing program where you would get 10% at the end of the year placed in what was essentially a 401k. That's gone and replaced with a run-of-the-mill 401k.

    They do give 2 weeks Paternity and Maternity leave as well as adoption assistance, so that's a progressive thing.

    They have a dependent care FSA, but they don't contribute anything to it. They'll reimburse for travel, but it's way less than what is required for the commute.

    If you work in a corporate office you'll get more benefits like occasional snacks and free lunches as well as coffee machines, but most employees are stuck at client sites.

    6% match is on the higher end of industry standard, but then again, it is Booz Allen and they're supposed to be on the top end of the scale. Match only deposits if you're actively employed on December 31st and isn't paid to the employee until many months later. Awful new high-deductible health insurance plans effectively gave everyone a $2k pay cut. Also tried to cut the parking and mass transit subsidy but enough backlash stopped that temporarily...
