I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Recognized as an industry leader (they invented the PERT chart), had incredibly dedicated client-facing employees, diverse range of clients give lots of opportunity for interesting work, generous 401K.

Cons

Willing to tolerate abusive clients for far too long.
Post-IPO management occasionally has a really bad idea (Take Share was the worst), runs with it for too long, then overcompensates to correct their mistake--the client-facing employees pay for management's sins.
Have come down with credentialitis--more focused on what you are (PMP, CCIE, MBA, etc) v. who you are.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start updating resumes and talking nice to Booz & Co., because they're probably going to buy back BAH at fire sale prices in a couple years. If you don't want to do that, focus on delivering quality work for the client. That's how you get long-term growth.

    Great benefits, wide variety of opportunities, open for movement into management and into different aspects of business if you choose. Work hard, prove yourself, and you will have no issues.

    Cons

    Like any large organization there is a lot of mandatory training and bureaucratic hoops to jump through to perform many daily/weekly tasks.
