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 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible work arrangements depending on team; decent work-life balanace; benefits are one of the best out there; generally competitive salaries; lavish end of the year holiday parties; rents out the Kings Dominion amusement park for a free family-fun day; provides outlets for volunteer opportunities for community outreach

    Cons

    Too much polticking; 401K contributions have gone down, along with merit increases; assessments are painful and voluntary, which means you have to complete them on your own time (some spend entire days crafting it into the difficult format they have provided)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the folks viewing assessments and distributing merit increases, please look at the actual work being performed throughout the year, rather than awarding only those who appear to be stellar employees because they were simply associated to projects that were more visible to higher execs. EVERY project counts.

    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.
