Pros

Great people. Great pay and benefits. Most contracts are somewhat flexible in terms of work schedule. Does great at looking for new opportunities when contract ends. Good mentors and personal development opportunity.

Cons

Sequestration has created some what of a cut throat environment. Contracts have been going away and people have been let go. Job security is at an all time low. No real technical track. Must develop new business to progress in rank

Advice to Management

Focus on cutting at the top before you cut consultants that actually work face to face with clients.

    Pros

    Booz Allen has always had some of the brightest and hardest working people in the industry. They had a very deep bench of talent but that is all starting to change as they become more and more like every other large body shop in the area.

    Cons

    Ever since they were bought by Carlyle the culture changed for the worse along with the benefits and compensation. Management at the VP and up level is completely clueless with regards to what motivates their employees and how to communicate with them. Any interaction with them is straight out of a Dilbert cartoon. Some Principals get it but you can tell the ones that are about to be promoted because it looks like act like they have been given a lobotomy. The mid-level management core (the Sr. Associates) is completely demoralized and most are leaving as fast as they can. Very few talented people at the Associate level want to be promoted since the don't perceive any value in doing so. Booz no longer rewards talent. This is going to leave a hollowed out shell of a company that will most likely have a catastrophic collapse in the near future.

    Advice to Management

    Cutting salaries and firing people creates a highly unmotivated workforce. The ones with talent leave and you are stuck with ones that can't find another job. Word is getting around that Booz is no longer a good place to work.
