Not the same firm since it's IPO.

I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The company as a whole is very good however, since it's IPO employee welfare and benefits are decreasing. BAH is becoming just another beltway contractor.

Cons

Work environment is heavily dependent upon which team you are on. Teams are managed by senior associates who work directly for a Vice President of a region or contract group. Senior Associates will lay-off, fire, hire temporarily and do what ever it takes to make the most money from a contract or to gain a contract on behalf of their Vice Presidents regardless of employee welfare. Expect to live and die by the contract. Your longevity may be determined by how much your salary takes away from the bottom line regardless of your value. This is a staunch departure from pre IPO operations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Going public killed the culture that made Booz Allen excellent.

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    It was relatively easy to get hired and I was 'on-the-beach' or billing overhead until a job came in. Nice perk.

    Cons

    Worst performance appraisal process ever. Anyone that you have contact with during your work day can be questioned regarding your work ability and performance. Any 'issues' are highlighted and used against you. The company is more interested in appearance and popularity than results.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The company, and very specifically my team, did an amazing job to ensure that I grew as an individual within the team instead of just making me do remedial tasks on the daily. I learned more within my 10 weeks at BAH than I did in a semester at school.

    Cons

    There weren't many social events tailored to interns for the most part.
