I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (more than 3 years)

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.

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

    Pros

    It can be cushy and comfortable - the hours are good, and the work tends to be slow and steady. The atmosphere is generally friendly and collaborative, and my colleagues seemed like nice people.

    Cons

    A pretty uninspired place where you can fall into comfortable mediocrity. At the junior level it wasn't apparent that there were mechanisms to recognize top performers over others. It was possible to coast by there doing little work and not learning much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more opportunities for mentorship, rapid learning and advancement for top-performing junior employees.

    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?
