I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for less than a year

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for 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.
