    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 Management

    The 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.

    Pros

    The employees working on administrative issues are professional, responsive, pleasant, and always willing to help when you have issues.

    Cons

    The Booz Allen Security Services team that handle clearances continuously makes mistakes and needs to be monitored more closely to ensure . Management needs to spend more time focused on their employees and make sure they are properly tasked. Management is more focused on gaining business than ensuring their employees are working adequately, included in the team, and satisfied with the job/environment.

    Advice to Management

    Management should figure out a way to focus on gaining business and managing their employees. For a company so large and reputable, mid-management seemed largely aloof to their employees.
