    Pros

    BAH doesn't own any office space. Everything is leased. The telecommute propaganda is just a ruse. it saves the company from requiring to provide employees their own office space.

    Cons

    Company will hire from outside instead of turning within. For example, newly hired Senior Associates take over ongoing projects without proper vetting. End up running projects to the ground.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow from within. Some projects would have lasted if you did.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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