    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    1) Some of the brightest people I have met work at Booz Allen
    2) Strong culture of teamwork, leveraging the best the firm has to offer, and delivering results that endure
    3) Opportunity to grow vertically and horizontally and solve tough client problems that have enduring benefits

    Cons

    1) Diversity in senior leadership (most come from the government or military; few from industry and who grow up in the firm out of college)
    2) Advancement comes slow for hard charging type A personalities that join out of college and want to be a senior leader someday (VP or above)
    3) Not as easy to move overseas after the split of Booz & Co. and Booz Allen

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Booz Allen has extremely talented consultants around the world. In order to keep the talent, really need to focus on providing faster advancement opportunities for consultants who are not former military or government based on performance. Also, need to figure out how to leverage the best of Booz Allen for the various markets (defense, Intel, nonprofit, commercial etc.) still fairly stove piped based on leadership and consulting alignment. Lastly, more focus on direct connections with every consultant in the firm.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Competitive salaries, good training opportunities, and excellent "core values". Overall a healthy, collaborative work culture.

    Cons

    Client base consists overwhelmingly of federal agencies. If you are not interested in working/consulting for federal government clients, your experience here will probably top out at mediocre, rather than great.
