Pros

- Well-known brand name in management consulting and in academic circles - Good place for ex-military and ex-government employees - Split from Booz & Company was necessary - Competitive salaries when they were private - Work where you live approach to office location assignments

Cons

- Heavily focused nowadays on public sector work - Little, if any, commercial expertise remains at the fim - Publicly traded firm - Cash cow for Private Equity firm - Carlye Group - New college grads need to be aware that there is a difference between consulting and becoming additional staff for a public agency

Advice to Management

Continue to develop thought leadership, and be honest with new college grads about public sector consulting.

    Pros

    Training. Great working from home policy. Nice, professional folks

    Cons

    Equity owned. Talk of work life balence ? there is none esp. if your working proposals, some managers expect replys to emails at 11pm. Clumsy security staff when working with agencies. More employees than there are uncleared positions - has become, "everyone for themselves" when finding billable hours. For you cleared professionals out there be very careful accepting offers with contigencies from this company, they have been giving start dates without customer acceptance and security paperwork already in place..all this = stress and RIF

    Advice to Management

    By back the Gov. business or hope someone else buys it soon so you can get back to caring about your customers and employees

    Pros

    The 401K and free coffee!

    Cons

    Company changed and for the worst once it public. Hoteling was implemented. Pink slips were given to often. Camaraderie went out the door. I enjoyed BAH for several years, but decided to leave with the new "IMPLEMENTED" culture.
