Pros

Good benefits package, opportunity to participate in interesting work. Financial rewards can be good if you have a knack for bringing in revenue and new work.

Cons

Tumultuous work environment unless you are 100% on client site. Current focus is all about billable work with no tolerance for bench time (up through mid to senior management). Recruited to develop new market segment but immediately given 96% utilization target requiring I find billable work from day one. Very matrixed organization means you can be working for four or five different managers at any one time.

Advice to Management

Simplify organizational structure.

    Pros

    I like the fact that I have a job manager for every contract that I work on and a career manager who doesn't change. My career manager is the one who does my appraisals and mentors me throughout my career at Booz Allen. This is something I've never had at any company.

    Cons

    Short term contract work sucks, but that's the nature of this business. I don't like that you get issued a "lack of work" letter after you roll off a job with nothing to do after only 2 weeks. The benefits are nothing great now that the company is publicly traded. They constantlt watch the bottom line and it's not as much fun to work here anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about the stockholders and treat your staff better. They are the bread & butter of your company.
