Pros

Booz Allen is populated with the best in the industry. They are driven by a very honest set of core values. The focus is always on doing what is right even if that means saying no to business.

Cons

Very demanding work schedule. The firm is known for pushing their benefits package to make up for the sometimes lower salaries.

Advice to Management

Booz Allen is going to have a difficult time with continued double digit (almost) growth every year and still maintain the family atmosphere that makes them a great company to work for. The sometimes constant focus for growth seems like only for growth's sake. Hopefully, Booz Allen doesn't let the quest for profit get in the way of producing the best possible products for clients everywhere.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance; pride in co-worker and leadership competencies; fairly low-stress assignments with Government clients; schedule flexibility; many locations for job mobility; military spouse friendly.

    Cons

    Upper management is comprised largely of retired military officers who have too strong of a time in grade, time in service mentality when it comes to promotions. Young, fast-trackers are often told they don't have enough "run time" for promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Promote individuals based on their competencies demonstrated and what they are capable of handling, not on how much "run time" they have or how much face time they have with leadership back at Booz Allen. Those of us on client site don't have the time to "socialize" with leadership because we are too busy running operations at the client site. Don't forget what it was like to be in our shoes.
