Pros

Booz Allen Hamilton is a good company that will expose you to bright and talented colleagues, interesting client engagements, and various types of training for professional development. The company has a good culture and promotes sound core values.

Cons

Company has endured changes attempting to acquire business in an environment where government contracts trend toward lowest cost technically acceptable versus best value. You may be exposed to layoffs if you are unable to find billable work for an expended period.

    Pros

    - Start salary was at par with the market. - New employee in-processing seminar:Thorough. Interactive. Provide lunch.

    Cons

    - Yearly Performance Evaluation: excessive in length and redundant, at times employees (within the company) who do not work in your area, in your field, or are in your rating scheme perform/lead your Performance Evaluation. - If you do not generate business (contracts = $$$) for them then moving up the chain is limited. - you are not promoted on your potential, but on the work you have done meeting the requirements of the next level while you work to maintain your current requirements/standards. - not attending "non-mandatory meetings", or "brown bags", etc does not look well. However, if you do attend you have to make up the time. If your place of employment was away from the corporate office you had to make up the travel time. Meaning, these meetings do not count towards your work day. However, some are scheduled during the work day.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to count duration meeting and travel time to your meetings as part of the workday.

    Pros

    Smart colleagues, excellent benefits, generous 401(k) contribution, work/life balance, the ability to work on projects that have an impact

    Cons

    Stodgy corporate culture, low salary compared to industry peers, difficulty to move between markets, overly beholden to shareholders (Carlyle Group), very susceptible to government budget constraints, no bonuses unless you are Senior Associate level or above

    Advice to Management

    Think about how the decisions you make affect employee morale before you commit to them.
