    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The name "Booz Allen Hamilton" is on your resume. Many offices across the country. "Work where you live" for GO Team is nice, should it be approved.

    Cons

    Salary for GO Team (internal staff) is far below other competitors. "Work/life" balance that they promise is almost nonexistent. Promotion from Consultant to Senior Consultant actually ends up causing you to make much less money due to no longer being able to collect overtime, while still being expected to work the extra hours. Not taking laptop with you on vacation makes you "not willing to go the extra mile". Hoteling. Not easy to grow or move into different positions within the company. Training (both internal and requests for external) near nonexistent.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a new survey on salaries across the board for internal staff if you wish to keep your employees happy. With so many of the great things that once made this company worth working for being taken away the lower salaries add to the lower morale.


  2. A great place to start, a horrible place for middle management.

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Outstanding co-workers with a standard of high-quality work. An outstanding place for someone starting their career and an extremely challenging and stressful place for those at the Senior Associate/Principal level. Compensation can be significant if you don't do the math to calculate your hourly rate.

    Cons

    Work hour expectations increase dramatically as you progress through the ranks. A 60-70+ hour work week is the norm. In addition to direct client work, the responsibiilties to the Firm are significant. These expectations have increased since going public and with a more competitive environment in federal contracting. Partners are known to dictate double digit growth and state that if you can't provide it, someone else is willing to try at a lower salary.
