    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with high profile government projects with bonuses, perks, and awards on a monthly basis. Severance package was decent with forced layoffs after Space Program cancelled.

    Cons

    Place people in areas regularly outside of their expertise without training to force them to fail allowing BAH the opportunity to get rid of them. Did not assist people in locating other jobs within the company and laid off several thousands of good people from new hires to those that had been with the company 15+ years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to keep good people and train those you have to prevent potential failures.

    Pros

    If you like to work with the government and want to work for one of the better firms, this is the right firm. There are some very sharp people here who understand government work and they have work in every federal space.

    Cons

    The firm has made standard the practice of issuing Lack of Work notices (i.e. find a job or you’re laid off) to young staff that cannot find work within several weeks of finishing a project. The main issue I have with this practice is that it isn’t up to the junior staff to win work, it’s up to the Partners and Principles to win work. There is also a related attrition problem. And lastly, even though I have been successful in finding a project to hide in while the purging of staff continues, when I tried to find a project that I want to work on I have been told by multiple Senior Associates that I should be grateful that I have a project to work on right now...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start by letting the staff know the firm's strategy moving forward and stop giving junior staff lack of work notices (its not their fault you cant win work)
