    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting work and smart people. Opportunity to what interests you, lots of resources to learn and self teach. Former NSA director is an executive.

    Cons

    Salary is way below the competition. Stuffy environment, losing long standing contracts lately because of being over priced and not having the talent they used to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go private again and get rid of the management that's in charge now. Remember what made you great back in the day and follow that strategy again

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton

    Pros

    The pay is very competitive and the benefits are good. The workers (lead associate and below) are very good people to work with.

    Cons

    Resource management at BAH does not exist. All the layoffs taking place could be prevented. Current principal leve leadership does not know how to sell consulting services, leaving workers in jeopardy. Corporate leadership is starting to get stale. The board has been there too long and is not connected to its people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break apart Booz Allen, sell what is valuable, and let The Carlyle Group get its pound of flesh. Going public has allowed much overdue management practice changes to radically shift the way Booz treats its people.
