I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

People-focused Excellent people Collaborative culture Fair compensation Good benefits

Cons

Work-life balance for managers/leaders Some changes in culture with market and going public Difficult to move around at the leadership level Too many layers of upper management - makes it difficult to see a path upward

Advice to Management

Consider reducing the number of levels and move toward a flatter structure Consider making it easier for leadership to move around to different projects and/or step in and out of leadership roles

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.
