Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Indianapolis, IN

I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Employees are intelligent and hard working people. Booz hires some of the best people in most industries and expects performance out of everyone. Training programs are some of the best I have seen. Booz Allen expects each employee to continuously improve and is willing to help pay for very expensive certifications (for a commitment of course)

Cons

In 2008, Booz Allen separated from the private sector and has only recently entered back into the private market. While the Booz Allen employees are great, most of your work will be with Federal government employees who can often be difficult to motivate. Also, surprisingly low compensation compared to the hype around the firm.
