Pros

Diversity of talent and opportunities is strong. Some of the brightest folks I have ever worked with, including creatives, techies, and mananagement. Strong support for training.

Cons

Fiefdoms do exist. Some teams will tend to hoard work and place good enough resources rather than the correct resoruce in order to keep team utilization up.

    Pros

    401k (ECAP) is unmatched compared to competitors. 10% of your salary across the board no matter how much you contribute - i.e., whether you contribute 10% or 1%, Booz Allen will deposit 10% of your salary.

    Cons

    Where to begin. No upward mobility unless you want to be a manager or business developer (no technical track). Training hours (40 hours per year) must be made up before the end of the fiscal year. Mandatory training every year. Annual assessments (review) of your performance that you have to do yourself that takes 2-3 days but is unbillable. Review/assess other people also, on your own time and your own dime. Required that you work on a proposal once a year AFTER you fulfill your client obligations (40 hour work week) so that you're working 80+ hours a week (nights and weekends) but only getting paid for the 40. And so on.

    Brand of the Company is better than the actual company

    Pros

    Benefits, work/life balance. Ability to stay current on technology

    Cons

    Mismanagement, ethics problems with Leadership. Current company is different after Carlie purchase. The company is not as attractive to work as it was in the past, recruiting talent is becoming a problem. Turnover has been terrible in the last two years. Key people are leaving at over a 30% rate.

    Advice to Management

    Start being honest with the employees. Learn to attract and cultivate talent, instead of relying on past reputation of the company.
