    Pros

    Solid work life balance, name brand company

    Cons

    declining and awkward culture with employees "hoteling" vice having there own office space. lack of direction in light of government slowdown in contract work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    come to terms with the fact that Booz in no longer a firm with unique intellectual capital, they are a corporation and only seek to maximize shareholder value (aka Carlyle group)

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (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.
