Strong firm undergoing large organization changes in uncertain times.

Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
Washington, DC

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

Pros- Capable Staff
- Good compensation for junior staff with hard skills (e.g. engineering)
- Relatively good job security in stronger market accounts
- Very collegial environment
- Front-line managers and Program Managers are generally very capable

Cons- Front-line / contractual leadership ability may vary across markets
- Future outlook for the company may seem "poor" for markets or services hit by sequestration
- Opportunities to showcase/build certain skills have been impacted by current market conditions
- Not a good environment for folks who desire constant direction/oversight
- Cultural shift due to the firm going public is noticeable

Advice to Senior ManagementThe staff understand that these are lean times but sometimes it isn't transparent as to what leadership is doing to stabilize current and secure near-term opportunities to provide job security for current staff. With the government going to larger contractual vehicles that take a long time to award in certain markets, more seems to be at stake with each new competition. Also, more could be done to combat business leaders building fiefdoms instead of utilizing capable staff who are on the bench and aligned to another market.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
