    Smart people, but not as good as the reputation the company once had... and management with questionable priorities

    Pros

    Smart people and some interesting projects

    Cons

    The company needs to reduce its overhead expenditures on silly things that don't matter (videos, newsletters, websites) and do its best to remain competitive without shortchanging employees' salaries and 401k matches.

    Advice to Management

    Get the people who are not on client site focused on producing, and cut out all non value added 'niceties' that drive up billing rates.

  2. Great post-military firm to get your civilian career started

    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 Management

    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.
