    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Hire people out of collage without clearances.

    Easy to get first few promotions, though without pay increases.

    401(k) used to be generous before it got cut.

    Cons

    No longer a consulting firm. Since Carlise took over, it has turned into a bodyshop.

    Very tight expense policy. Good luck getting reimbursed for anything.

    If your contract ends, you get let go. In the past, the company would give you a few months to find a new project.

    From 2000 to 2010, Booz Allen was great. For the past three years the firm has changed for the worse. Time to move on.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial atmosphere, network/relationships, comparatively easy to relocate or change positions within the company, performance assessment process, benefits (i.e., 10% given to 401(k) without matching)

    Cons

    Restructuring (i.e., Vision 2020), changing from capability teams (e.g., strategy, change, org design) to market teams (e.g., Defense/Army market). The realignment and challenges with sequestration/defense budget is leading to reducing levels of senior managers. Benefits are being reduced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so hasty in letting your senior associates and principals go without consideration of the capabilities that they bring to the table.
