    Pros

    Plenty of good projects. Some smart people. Generally nice atmosphere. DC office is a good place to work.

    Cons

    Hard to get to know people now because everyone is in different locations. Need to do a lot of networking to get the most out of it.

    Advice to Management

    Reward the exceptional contributors. Needs to be a way of giving people what they deserve without having to negotiate.

    Pros

    The best benefit to working for BAH is learning from other smart people. Excellent opportunities to support Federal (and now Commercial) clients in addressing complex challenges. Wide variety of interesting projects, both internal and external, and an array of professional development options are available. You get back what you put in. The is much flexibility in where and how you get the work done. Values, inclusion, and performance matter.

    Cons

    If you're not a Type A person, you may not thrive in the fast-paced environment. Extra hours are expected during surge requirements and for proposals. Depending on your level, you are always connected and will send and receive email messages on the weekend and during holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more internal and team coaching for rising managers and supervisors to support their success in dealing with their staff and teams. Hold Senior Associates and Lead Associates responsible for emotional intelligence and staff success as well as hitting revenue targets.

    Pros

    Flexible workplace (location and sometimes schedule), maternity leave, good people, good reputation, industry standard benefits, always changing

    Cons

    Lack of job stability, always changing, sometimes challenging clients, self-made environment (have to be aggressive and strategic to maximize chance for success)

    Advice to Management

    With upcoming changes expected in national policy on maternity leave, Booz Allen will have to rethink its policy on this, as well, to maintain its edge for working moms

    Pros

    Lots of flexibility. Good work life balance. Interesting fast paced work.

    Cons

    Some processes take too long to accomplish. Project managers stretched too thing or lacking experience need more training to deal with managing the business side of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more training ahead of putting people in charge of projects. There are a lot of things to manage administratively and junior project managers cannot handle the day to day needs of the business.

    Pros

    Many resources and great people for the most part.

    Cons

    Lack of upward mobility and personal growth. The focus seems to be on the now, who can we hire to fill a position instead of how to we develop career individuals. Yes, there is a trade off, but at some point the failure to develop talent will continually create a difficultly to maintain talent.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on the bottom line and continue to develop internal talent. Goals should be set, however, the inability to grow talent creates stagnate employees that skill sets are not developed by continually hiring from the outside. Local management does their job well, but unless you've created a network within the firm, it's hard to move projects, which is difficult to do while working client site.

    Pros

    You have the chance to work on a lot of different type projects and proposals. This allows the opportunity to gain a variety of skills in different areas of engineering.

    Cons

    Career growth within the company is slow and there are very little raises. Panama City Beach is a fun town to visit but it is very much a tourist town while also being a small town.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend introducing the engineers to the team better and work on integrating the new members more. It felt like at times in the beginning that you were tossed in the deep end.
