I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

The benefits are great although slipping away year by year. It has a good business culture and stresses networking which is always valuable. Training opportunities are excellent although you will take them on your time (if you take a 20 hour course, you are expected to make up the 20 hours later in client billing). Recognized brand name with a good reputation.

Cons

The benefits are slowly eroding. 401K contribution of 10% was the best around but now it is going to the basic 3% employer match. Holidays have changed to match the federal calendar which is okay but cost us days off this year. Leadership is certain markets is lacking, No Work termination comes quickly if you find yourself without a contract to bill to and management and HR do little to help you find something within the company. Dress code is ridiculous. Path to promotion past associate is murky and based on good old boy network.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire managers with specific knowledge for each market. Don't reward managers who lose contracts the firm has held for decades. Get rid of the outdated dress code.

    Pros

    Decent benefits (but they have been cut back recently), average company to work for

    Cons

    Upper management does not communicate well about important matters but will drown you with information about trivial stuff. Company is now a body shop like the other major federal contractors. As soon as your contract ends, you are out the door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Going public destroyed the culture of the company and made it no different from any other major federal contractor. Your two faced communications about caring about employees is demeaning and misleading.
