I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

After 10 years in the Army, Booz Allen helped me tremendously in getting my civilian career started. The firm is heavy with military vets who are more then willing to help show you the way. The human capital here is incredible. Some of the smartest people I've ever met work here at Booz Allen. Depending on what your professional background is, you will get to work on some interesting and very dynamic projects.

Cons

The boom years of government contracting is over. The firm being bought by Carlye Group has brought about changes to the firm. Pay is so-so. Compensation is more there to help with inflation. I have seen the firm lose incredible talent due to compensation issues. We need more, stronger leadership at the Associate and Lead Associate levels.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

We need to get more work with private industry. The government shutdown we just went through exposed the vulnerability of our over-reliance on government as a client. We need to diversify our work and we have to do it with a sense of urgency. And start adding higher compensation to your rank-and-file consultants if you want them and their knowledge/experience to stay in the firm.

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton

    Pros

    Expansive reach, lots of career development, very professional culture

    Cons

    Size of company can be daunting, and it requires initiative to see other sides of the firm and not feel siloed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage movement from team to team and lower levels to help junior staff find their fit
