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

Pros

Great job security, interesting work, fun people to work with, events (gala, movies), great benefits.

Cons

due to the recession there has been a cut on raises (~1-2% for consultants who put in 50 hrs a week) and promotions. obviously this is something that can not be escaped. overall, bah has been doing its best to keep its employers happy. not a lot of room for growth but that all depends on the contract you support. you could be doing the same work as your boss and your boss's boss but without the management portion.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

better transparency and less meetings. corporations have an obsession with meetings. typical week consists of weekly status meetings with clients (however many you support), team meetings, sub-team meetings, and leadership meetings.

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

    Pros

    Work with top-notch colleagues
    "Walk the walk" in Ethics and Business Integrity
    Lots of variety in consulting assignments
    Big company with a lot of internal resources for career development

    Cons

    If working on client site, it's easy to "get lost" and lose connection to the firm
    Difficult for the firm to win smaller contracts due to high overhead

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying more attention to the junior personnel (Senior Consultants and Associates). They are seeing a very tenuous future with fewer opportunities for advancement and new assignments. They are also seeing a high rate of turnover at the senior management levels (Senior Associates and Principles) and this increases their concern about job stability.

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

    Pros

    Managers seem to care about your career and happiness. Excellent flexibility with hours(Just have to make your minimum hours for the month). Excellent PTO accrual rate, as an Associate I receive 21 days per year on top of the federal holidays. Decent pay raises, received 6% pay raise after my first year and 9%(with promotion) after my second year.

    Cons

    Raises are on the down-hill because of the economy(promotion to Associate used to net 12-15%). If you are at the client site 100% of the time then you can feel somewhat disconnected from the firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reach out to your staff that are located at the client site.
