I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (less than an 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 (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.
