I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than 5 years

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.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton

    Pros

    - Professional colleagues that desire to excel
    - Good benefits, although that is changing rapidly
    - Employees are generally considered assets (consulting model)
    - Flexible assignments; transferring to other company locations is not discouraged

    Cons

    - Government work
    - Limited raise structure, best way to get a large raise is to leave and come back
    - Post-split with Booz & Co, there is a longer and longer path to Bonus level (Senior Associate and higher)
    - After Carlyse, it's a slow bleed to mediocrity.
