    Pros

    Good benefits, salary is better negotiated if you are coming in with some experience, management is pretty easy to talk to.

    Cons

    If you are coming in with no experience they will lowball you until you leave and possibly return with more skills.

    Occasionally interesting work

    Cons

    Biggest problem: the enormous amount of sitting around "on the bench" that often occurs because of lack of client work or fed bureaucrats not moving contracts quickly. Result: I've only had actual work for for about 1/3 of my time at this company, which is bad for my career development and a waste of tax dollars because that's what pays Booz. As an MBA, I expect to be challenged. That hasn't happened. I've seen a LOT of people at my level leave because they are very smart, very motivated, and this place wastes their time and talents.

    Government consulting is a misnomer. It is NOT consulting. It is contracting out what the feds don't want to do or aren't staffed for. Booz has become a "butts in seats" place, where they just try to get you client site basically doing the same thing as a bureaucrat. And trying to help entrenched, unmotivated career bureaucrats make progress on important national issues is frustrating.

    Management: Senior Associates usually SUCK, and they are the middle management you'll likely work for. Principals are usually good, but there's limited interaction because they're senior to the Senior Associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire people you don't have work for.
    Work proactively with the feds to fix the absurd contracting system.
    Hire and promote better senior associates.
