Pros

fantastic training and great place to 'cut your teeth' on your journey back to the private sector.

Cons

I was there pre-IPO and there seems to be a bit of a hard time dealing with all the cost cutting measures put in place. All of this happened after I left.

    Pros

    The Booz Allen network is great. There is tons of free company training and you are encouraged to reach out to mentor and be mentored. The variety of contracts was awesome when I was there - almost any government agency, tons of different roles and professional development opportunities. If you don't like the contract you're on, network and you can probably find a new challenge!

    Cons

    Experience depends heavily on your team. Some teams are focused on your professional development while others will demand a lot of (unpaid) overtime to support a client's unreasonable demands. Some "go-to" consultants are over-utilized and others might find themselves constantly on the beach. Many contracts are long-term butts-in-seats on client site rather than the leadership/management consulting on which the company built its reputation. As the company went private, the "work/life balance" motto became secondary to making money, so there was a lot of hassle about short-term disability. Also, the yearly assessment can be brutal.

    Advice to Management

    Elicit feedback from lower-level consultants and address management concerns to improve the consistency of experience across teams.
