Pros

- wonderful people - extremely committed and highly competent
- interesting work - cutting-edge projects for demanding clients
- supportive team - 40hr/yr training budget, countless training opportunities

Cons

- going public - Booz Allen was and is an incredibly strong company going top-flight work for sophisticated clients. I do not personally understand why the leadership team decided to do an IPO. The company's rich culture is facing challenges related to the changed incentives that come with throwing shareholders into the mix of stakeholders.

    Pros

    Great at work/life balance. Strong benefits and vacation but base compensation tends to be a bit low for some (but not all) positions. Great people who work here.

    Cons

    Still too much of an "old boys" network and hard to get promoted past a certain level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While you teach diversity and culture it would be good to see it followed through at times.

    Pros

    1) You get the opportunity to work with extremely intelligent and collaborative colleagues
    2) Both a pro and a con--your career is what you make it to be. Whether you want to become a subject matter expert or become an industry leader, the choice is yours to make and both are equally attainable.
    3) The company offers a variety of challenging and rewarding work in technology, strategy, engineering, etc--a wide selection of environments and assignments to choose from.
    4) Work-life balance lives on!

    Cons

    1) Both a pro and a con--your career is what you make it to be. You need to be proactive and have a good career manager to help you achieve your goals.
    2) Training is harder to obtain as compared to similar companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider reinvesting in your people by making training and courses more accessible or even mandatory. It will help boost higher quality of work and your clients will be sure to notice the consistency--if we are here to provide knowledge and expertise to our clients, wouldn't it make sense to invest in increasing and retaining the knowledge-base?
