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 ManagementAdvice

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

    The good thing about working for Booz Allen is that you work with smart people who are well qualified for the work they do. It's an intellectually stimulating environment where your colleagues will generally be people you want to work with.

    Cons

    The upper middle management is pre-occupied with business development. They tend to be disinterested in actual project work as long as the client is satisfied. There's definitely a bias towards youth and people who have been consultants their entire working life in promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to those you bring in for second careers. I spent nearly 30 years as a military officer and my management does not have any idea of how much leadership experience (and life experience) I have.
