Pros

I signed a contract that IF the award is won by Booz, then they will hire me to fill the position created.

Cons

Months later I am still waiting to hear back. I was given no retainer fee.

Advice to Management

Retainer fees should be offered. People can't live off of empty promises.

    Pros

    Better brand recognition as we spread ourselves thinner

    Cons

    The environment is less friendly the bigger we get.

    Advice to Management

    Re-embrace the philosophies such as "work-life balance" and "mentoring" that were so popular 5-6 years ago!


  2. Focus is on money, not employee

    Pros

    The benefits at Booz Allen are pretty hard to beat, several of my former colleagues have gone to other management consulting firms and have all commented on their new benefit packages being woeful. The salary is not bad for people who came into Booz Allen before they went public, I believe since going public the initial wage is a lot lower.

    Cons

    Since going public and the downturn in economy, Booz Allen has lost its focus on investing in employees and now is only considering the bottom line and its shareholders. There seemed to be great investment in lower level employees with training and developmental incentives, but now in order to do any training you are still pressured to keep your utilization up in addition to the training hours. In our office there are hardly any senior consultants left, as everyone has been given the boot or moved on for their own sake and noone can blame them.

    Advice to Management

    Fix up the assessment process and focus more on investing in the younger worker bees as they do all the work!
