    Pros

    Was able to (and encouraged to) employ full extent of Joint Exercise expertise and knowledge directly with combatant command training audiences and selected HQ JTFs and sub-unified commands training audience in order to achieve some of the most successful Joint training ever.
    Always supported by leadership to provide customers with best of best options and follow-up.

    Cons

    At times there seem to be a strong desire to generate business opportunities over / beyond current tasks. This is a business methodology therefore this could be a pro or a con, very subjective depending on personalities and focus.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    For the technical - developers, network security, data scientists: there is job security, and a bit of prestige that comes with the booz name in these positions.

    Cons

    Painfully inefficient. So much bureaucratic nonsense to deal with on a day to day basis. Company culture is non-existent. Very disorganized company with little vision of the future. Benefits and pay are very sub par.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to people - both newcomers and those who have been there a while. Focus on developing a company culture where people WANT to come to work.

    Pros

    Flexible hours and can telework as needed. Generally the people are very intelligent and you can rely on them to do their jobs.

    Cons

    Pay isn't all that great. They seem to be worsening the insurance and 401k offerings each year. Only way to get promoted is to become someone's go-to-person which will destroy any work/life balance. Politics play a huge role the higher you go.

    Pros

    You get to work with modern technologies, smart people and yet still get home for dinner and enjoy your weekends.

    Cons

    If you want to move up in the firm - above Associate - you need to focus most of your time on managing existing business and bringing in more business.

    Advice to Management

    Software developers today want to work on MacBooks, wear T-shirts, post their code to github and work flexible hours. Many don't want to manage the business and don't want to create decks. Find ways to fit them into government contracting.

    Pros

    There is an abundance of talent, cultural diversity and a wide range of job opportunities.

    Cons

    Booz Allen is so deeply rooted in the Federal contracting market that often times consultants think and act as a Federal Employee instead of consultants.

    Advice to Management

    Cycle contractors around to different projects from time to time.
