I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Exceptional people, we hire great people who often are under utilized given the nature of government consulting. Good work life balance if you land on a project that allows for flexibility

Cons

No career track and promotions tend to be political and not always based on merit (those for Sr. Associates and below); little transparency on firm's direction prior to big changes being implemented.

Advice to Management

Be honest with your people, we all appreciate real "straight talk" rather than sugar coated coprporate-speak on the going-on that affect all staff

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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.
