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

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

Pros

Great benefits, competitive pay, not as strict in their career models as other consulting companies, great projects

Cons

I wasn't here before the firm went public and also solely became a Federal consulting company so I can't say how much greater it was, but coworkers are constantly telling me how it was better back in its heyday.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My biggest complaint would be that they seem to keep hiring when availability of current projects is quite small--in essence stop hiring so much on overhead and take care of existing employees. I know many people who are trying to get out.

    Overall positive experience, but have experienced a decline with too many organizational

    Pros

    Booz Allen has great flexible working arrangements if your role/job allows it. The people are great to work with. There are opportunities to volunteer in the community through Booz Allen.

    Cons

    Booz Allen's promotion and growth opportunities are now limited, and are no longer different from our competitors as benefits have declined and consultants are not carried for longer than two weeks when a contract is lost or not an extended.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconsider the decision to go Public.

    Pros

    Booz Allen has a great network and resource system. They're able to draw on expertise from all facets of the company.

    Cons

    It is a very political employee management system. I've seen managers who have all of their staff complain about unprofessionalism and conflict but because this person was a friend of higher management, they received an bonus during their annual review. They preach a fair "360" review system, but it's not. Unless you know how to play the political game, you will not move ahead in this company. This is true even if your work is considered stellar.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start appreciating your client facing staff.
