    Old Boys Club leadership style is back.

    Pros

    The degree or level of work to life balance that an employee may receive at times from the projects and opportunities one may be involved with at the time goes a long way.

    Cons

    Lack of focused and tailored roles or opportunities for consultants. Consultants are not always given a great deal of input in their future opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Create more focused and tailored roles for direct reports. Allow consultants to have a greater degree of input in their future opportunities.

    Pros

    Good benefits, opportunities to change projects, flexible time or work from home (depending on the project), learning opportunities, easy to engage with management. You don't get laid off as soon as your contract is up, there are opportunities to find other work.

    Cons

    Annual bonuses used to be better, replaced by 6% 401k matching (still better than industry average though). Used to be able to network with more people before the reorg a few years back, but it's getting better.

    Very enjoyable atmosphere, friendly people, variety, and training. Booz-Allen is a party type atmosphere, for an employer, and social engagements happened often.

    Cons

    I am sorry I was not hired permanent.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the good spirit and relations.

    Pros

    Work life balance
    Telework allowed
    Nice people
    Great brand - helps your resume

    It's a great place to start your career or in early years of your career. They provide good training, teams are usually collaborative and helpful, culture is great (depending on the team).

    Cons

    Declining revenue
    Bureaucratic
    Difficult to move up
    Benefits no longer good

    In my 5+ years, a lot of things have changed and for the most part for the worse. Benefits used to be GREAT and now horrible. The way management made decisions around cutting benefit was a mistake. Hoteling system is not fun as you spend a lot of time trying to find space to work, and with recent changes of getting rid of a lot of buildings, parking is also an issue. Overall a good company and I had a great career here but can't stay long if you are ambitious.

    Advice to Management

    People is your only asset. Invest in people!
