    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.

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

    Pros

    There are a great deal of professional development opportunities. It's a great work environment for entry-level professionals looking to learn a lot in term of admin, process, and project management.

    Cons

    Working within government bureaucracy can be tiresome, ones actual ability to move between "markets" is easier said than done, you're always wondering where your next project is going to come from, and lastly while the company tries very hard to fix this, it's easy to feel disconnected given their dispersed working environment.
