I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than a year

Pros

great benefits (in an effor to make up for lower compensation?)
flexible schedule depending on project
great work-life balance (for associates and below)
great place to start a consulting career

Cons

lack of visibility into mid-level management's decisions & reasoning
easy to feel isolated or lost in the crowd if not actively networking
shift from private to publicly traded company has led to several cost-cutting initiatives (reduced # of paid time-off)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

provide more incentive to lower the churn rate - all the best and brightest appear to be exiting the firm. find out what is causing the departures from the firm, unless the strategy is to rely on low-cost junior staff without developing and retaining its own talent.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and training programs. Committed to work-life balance with multiple flexible work options. Great opportunity to develop consulting skills in both business and technical environment. A culture that fosters diversity and community service.

    Cons

    Dependency on government funding creates periods of instability. Althought the company can manage those periods better than most other government contractors, it cannot guarantee 100% job security.
