    Pros

    Great people, excellent 401 K program, spectacular salary!

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the vice president that I worked for cared only about climbing the ladder and not enough for his employees. As his EA for 4 1/2 years and "his right arm" and the only admin supporting him and his senior staff, I begged for help for months to no avail. All he would say is "you have to do this (added responsibilities) and there is no business case to add more admin. So, after 5 years and never wanting to leave Booze Allen, I had no choice but to "retire". It was a question of sanity! I was putting in too many hours in OT to get my job done and the work just kept increasing with no hope of getting help. So, it was me or the job and I chose me. I thought the world of my boss and our staff, but with no help, it was getting to be too much. The kicker is: after giving notice, I helped him hire 3 people to replace me! Sad!

    Pros

    Great employer, especially for folks right out of college. Booz is a respected consulting company that looks great on a resume, and the company invests in their employees to ensure they're capable of providing the maximum benefit for their client.

    Cons

    One word: sequester. Consultant/Contractor environment with the government can cause friction and conflict at times as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes the client is wrong.
