Work with smart people who do quality work

Associate (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than a year

ProsYour co-workers and managers are very smart and dedicated
Clients and work are interesting and meaningful
Many opportunities for "connecting" with co-workers outside of client engagements
Mentoring at all levels is encouraged and practiced

ConsIf you want to advance, expect long hours (typical of any company in management consulting). However, if you are happy at your level, work life balance is respected by managers (no "up or out" mentality).
Everyone is expected to be billable, even as you advance in management responsibility. At some point this is more distracting than helpful.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!

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

It's okay...but not what it used to be

Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
Washington, DC

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


Pros: Great benefits, competitive pay, not as strict in their career… Cons: I wasn't here before the firm went public and also solely became a Federal consulting company so I can't… Advice to Senior Management: My biggest complaint would be that they seem to keep hiring when availability of current projects is quite small--in essence stop… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
