I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good people, real assessment process. Reasonable advancement opportunity. Good ECAP - retirement bonus each year. Good solid benefits.Pay seems lower than other beltway bandits but the job is a little more stable.

Cons

Too much overhead, strange short sighted decision-making from management team, need for billable work - if you lose this, you lose your job. Carlyle Group is bent on running this storied brand into the ground so they can cash out. Talk a good game about work/life balance but ask for a lot of unpaid overtime from junior staff and look the other way on time charging policy violations.

Advice to Management

Cut the fat, reduce the number of VPs and Officers drastically, get out of the staff augmentation business, and buy out the Carlye group.Come up with a real plan to deal with Government cuts by diversifying into the private sector.
