I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

No company is perfect but Booz Allen is an excellent place for those looking to establish a 30 year long career at one place or for those looking to gain valuable experience before continuing somewhere else. The company invests in their employees by contributing to individual 401k's, paying for certifications / school, and providing time to manage both your professional and personal life. In the DC Metro area, those who aren't on client site can work at the office closest to where they live - nice on the wallet when it comes to gas money.

Cons

The industry is tough right now... Fiscal constraints, doing more with less, etc has made clients and the work environment much more stressful. The company is changing rapidly to meet these demands which makes life tough sometimes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to "boots on the ground" staff more often. Change is good but too much change can be detrimental - make sure the change is critical for the future before considering change.

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

    Pros

    The culture here is amazing. the work/life balance is great, and the business mindset for the Firm is correct. They will continue to be a force within the environment and continue to mentor young Consultants and leverage their inherent skills as they expand within the Civil market.

    Cons

    The annual assessment cycle is brutal, but gives a true look at the talents of the staff on the team. The political games that are played here depends on your manager and there are good and bad. That comes with any Firm of this size. It was overall a good experience.

    As an Independent Contractor, my particular experience was that BAH gave nothing but disdain and condescension.

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    None come to mind...One of the IT employees was helpful.

    Cons

    The "team" that administered the particular project that I was associated with for 20 months, was arrogant, rude and aloof. Perhaps if I had worked with a BAH Project Team, my experiences and opinions might have been more positive... Their online system of submitting receipts and billable hours on a monthly basis, was notoriously difficult to get to work.
