    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Booz has a lot of work, so you can find another position if you really worked at it.

    Cons

    You have to work hard to find another position. Your management won't help you find work. There is also no standard at Booz- any decision on salary or promotion is made by your leadership. So if you are on a team that has good leadership you will do well.

    Advice to Management

    There should be a standard for promotions and salaries and not based on the biases of each team's leadership.

    Pros

    Mgrs are easy to work for. They have reasonable expectations and it's a structured environment. I enjoyed my work. I recommend this employer to anyone seeking a new opportunity.

    Cons

    I can't really think of any downsides. I get to work from home. This is what I've always dreamed of. So there aren't really any negative things about that. I enjoy working from home and the flexibility.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A huge chunk of their work is DOD so there's always a lot of work.

    Cons

    I could go on for War and Peace lengths, but I'll keep it short. It's contracting; while they do try to shuffle people after losing a contract or proposal, it doesn't always work that way. I can't speak for the whole company, but my group is very much a good old boys' club: if you're not well-liked, you're screwed. Despite claiming otherwise, they have a one-size-fits-all mentality: you have to bring in business to get anywhere. While it's not necessarily a bad thing that the company is very client-focused, if you're job doesn't require client interaction and/or your bosses keep that opportunity from you, it hurts you a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better and don't blow smoke. If you want employees to have more choice in their career path, actually give it to them

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great company with care and feeding of staff, core values aren't just lip service; and its awesome to be part of its 100 year history. Benefits are good - $5k tuition reimbursement, $2k training/certification, and decent healthcare. Great internal mentorship and open door policies.

    Cons

    Easy to grow on client side than internally. Some managers aren't as good as others.

    Advice to Management

    Take a deeper interest in highly functioning teams and replicate that camaraderie and effectiveness on dysfunctional ones. Don't hesitate to manage poor leaders out of the firm sooner.

    Pros

    They treat their employees as family. BAH is truly a great organization to work for.

    Cons

    You'll never be the smartest person in the room (and if you are you need to ask for a promotion).

    Cons

    In the DC area, there are 10+ office locations. It makes it difficult to connect with team members sometimes.

    Medical plans offered in 2015 are not great
