Current Employee - Associate in Colorado Springs, CO

I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good pay, good benefits, but they will give you a low ball offer when you are first coming in off the street.

Cons

Your team makes a big difference. I've seen where people with a certain boss are given more flexibility then others, when doing the same function, such as a volunteer or mentor event.
The company is big and therefore takes a long time to make decisions.
The company in the Colorado area is continueing to go after the same clients, when the market is shifting and typical DOD clients have fewer funds to spend on consultants. Also, much of the work tends to be workforce augmentation rather than actual consulting work.
Now that the firm has gone public it is all about the bottom line. I fully expect benefits to start disapearing so that profits can be maintained and shareholders stay happy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go after work in the private sector.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The firm is present in many markets;
    The firm offers good salaries and benefits.
    The firm employs motivated and intelligent staff.
    The firm has an open attitude towards teleworking.
    The firm offers diverse internal training opportunities and does support external training/certification courses.

    Cons

    The firm's standards for promotion are highly subjective and variable between teams, despite all reviews following the same process.
    The firm's mentoring and staff relocation programs have questionable value, quality and reliability.
    The firm's willingness to keep staff without billable work has dramatically declined; consider news of a lost contract as a your advanced warning of job insecurity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dear upper managers - your middle managers are choking the potential of their staffs. There is no rating option for middle managers, but if there was, I'd give them one of five stars with very few exceptions.
