    Pros

    Relatively flat leadership structure, or at least I felt I interacted with higher level leaders a fair amount; started with cuts to executive management first during recent government spending cuts

    Cons

    Different company since going public and with recent government budget issues. No longer feel like they take care of employees as much as they used to, although they probably do so better than the competition, even now.

    Pros

    * great systems; yes they were onerous, but there was a clear understanding why they existed. and from time to time they would change in response to new needs! or grumbling from the troops * strong spirit of collaboration * culture of quality * culture of honesty, compliance * they understood the value of investment in people and capability. Although at this time they struggle with doing the right thing to grow staff. Not enough resources * very smart company. people who ran it knew what they were doing. they attracted quality talent * excellent systems for internal communication. leadership messaging was exquisite * so many fun things to get involved with. invested in ideas * flexible work arrangements. "work where you park" * they put metrics on soft skills especially for leaders. lived the firm value statement * path to advancement for staff clearly defined. and objective * firm provided the tools to me to get a great deal of work done

    Cons

    * did not value relationships. constantly moving people around within the company. Or moving them out * everyone was basically a cog in a big machine. success was easier if you conformed with the culture * bottom line focus caused conflict with quality delivery * they have a major diversity problem, particularly their ability to relate to communities of color * quality sometimes led to snooty-ness. money and power were the currency of value for people and positions * remote work meant few face to face relationships. little interpersonal interaction * the firm cared about people to the extent they contributed to the company value proposition. this was pretty obvious all around. no one trying to pretend it is otherwise. no value, no job

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the new reality and come up with the new Booz Allen value proposition for employees. The idea that Booz is an elite organization and attracts and retains the best talent is strained right now. Cost cutting and staff churn mean that Booz is really something else now
