I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton

Pros

Reputation, challenging atmosphere, willingness to change, leadership opportunities early in your tenure, Centers of Excellence provide opportunity to continually learn and keep skills up to date.

Cons

Company seems to reinvent itself quite often, public oversight has created some separation of classes as it appears the approach on decisions is based more on what the analyst want to here than what we should deliver

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Smart people that work hard

    Cons

    Awful management decisions on over hiring, over spending on lavish foods at company events, too many corporate emails, too many login interfaces to do anything, terrible corporate communication amongst the leadership, disrespectful "lack of work" policies, even for long term employees that gave many years to the company...as soon as you don't have a "B" number to charge to the customer, you are out of there!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of spending a ton of money on food and new hire training that no one cares about or remembers once they start working on their client site, work to land contracts and retain the talent you hire instead of dropping them once they can no longer charge to a "B" number. You are more cut throat than some major engineering firms but the choices you make will guarantee you will not last as long as these engineering firms you wish to compete against. Also, don't force your employees to work for free an additional 40 hours so they can do training. Training makes your employees better for them and better for you! I should have known to be worried when the line of new hires wrapped around the building on my first day. Even though I won awards for a job well done, in the end you dumped me because you had no where to put me (because you haven't won any contracts) and you didn't even provide a severance package to lessen the blow. Don't pretend you are something you are not- you definitely impressed me my first day with the nice coffee machines around One Dulles that were free to employees but as I got to know your culture forcing people to use their own computers, work from home, spending money in wasteful places, I realized I was in a terrible place. My only redeeming grace was the client I worked for. What a shame you have ruined the reputation of BAH with such poor decisions in the recent years. Every person I have worked with since I started has been let go- including my managers. Kind of pathetic.
