    Former Employee - Associate in Dayton, OH
    Former Employee - Associate in Dayton, OH

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

    Pros

    Great 401K plan with matching

    Cons

    Very focussed on the Federal market, and more like a body shop (temp) agency. More interested in filling billable seats on long term staff augmentation within the Federal sector than actually performaning any actual consulting work.

    The bulk of the company tops out at Level 3 (Associate). They added a new level in 2010 called "Lead Associate", its essentially a proving ground for making the leap to Sr Associate. Very little increase in Salary, and a TON of responsibility. Depending on the market your in and your skill set, you could be stuck at Level 3 for a LONG time...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to actually be a consulting firm and compete in the commercial sector, and bid projects with travel to bring in the expertise, and stop focussing on placing a resource and making sure he is the best dressed at the client site.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great opportunities to network and receive training. Many different kinds of work albeit all Federal.

    Cons

    You better be billable or else. You may not like "hoteling" - not having an office with your own stuff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what it takes to help your staff find billable work.
