    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    BAH is a very collaborative environment, instead of being competitive internally. I learned more there in 1.5 years than at IBM in 3 years. We mentored each other to be better consultants, and it made for a more integrated team, grew jr level consultants to more experienced, senior consultants, and fostered a comfort level within the team. They reward high achievers and hard workers with not only public recognition, but also small rewards that really help motivate employees.

    Cons

    In order to advance, extra hours are the norm. You will be doing 100% full time work, plus contributing to the company in your spare time by participating in internal projects or proposals, which is not uncommon in a large company like this. It does cause a bit of an problem in the work/life balance, so you just need to manage expectations and time according to how much you can contribute. I only left there for a position that would allow me, a single mom, a little more time to properly raise my 10yo. But I would go back there in a heartbeat. The pay was amazing and I worked in a great group of people. Fantastic company!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps find a way to distribute the other obligations within the company a little better so the high-performers don't spread themselves too thin.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I work with a great team. Love the flexibility with hoteling.

    Cons

    Hard to navigate around the company to get things done. Low balled on salary. If you take on another job that would normally pay more than your current salary, it doesn't matter. You will be paid at the rate you came in at so you are really under paid. Stress over finding next project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your awesome leadership, drop some of your recruiters. Pay people for the level of work they perform, not a title status.
