I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

variety of work available
good compensation and benefits
for software developers, a fairly relaxed environment

Cons

not ultimately a software shop, so you'll never be a priority
sometimes hard to get a read on what management is actually going to do in a given situation

Advice to ManagementAdvice

try to provide a little more stability and dependability so that your employees can plan more than 6 months ahead.

    Pros

    Great compensation, management really invests in employees. Very difficult to get laid off.

    Cons

    When a contract ends, its stressful and difficult to get new positions. Bonuses are only paid out to the senior leadership. Employee benifits are getting cut more and more every year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more benefits to employees and help make work a more fun place.

    BAH is a mediocre company that suffers from corruption, nepotism, and their workplace environment is similar to 1950s.

    Pros

    one of the larger government contractors with various contracts

    Cons

    All employees have to wear a dress shirt and tie everyday (very strange requirement from the 1950s). When we work at government sites, we stand out because government workers are business casual and we are all dressed up in dress shirts and ties. Management is too conservative and old, no fresh thinking, and its all about generating revenue from the government. Nothing else seems to matter for management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drop your arrogance and treat your emplyees with respect and courtesy. Drop the dress shirt and tie requirement. It makes us all look ridiculous at government sites. Management needs to be modernized with 2013 thinking, not 1950s thinking.
