I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Nice people, easy to network
Interesting projects
Flexible hours
Nice amenities (flavia coffee, tea, sugar, creamer, hot chocolate, plasticware, paper towels, etc.)
Competitive compensation and benefits

Cons

Cut back on 401K (6% matching instead of a 10% no matter what)
More focused on employees being billable (you'd have to make up the however many hours you spent in training)
Upper management is unorganized and do not know everything that is going on with their employees
Raises have been low recently (even 0% in some cases)
Takes a long time to switch projects

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop being so obsessed with billable hours and communicate more with your employees to see if they're satisfied with how things are going on their project.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits within the industry, opportunity to innovate in your spare time, definitely a learning/mentoring environment, leadership and entrepreneurship encouraged. Finally simplifying the performance assessment process.

    Cons

    This company has changed its entire business model and lowered the standard for employees. Consulting, no more... Booz Allen is now truly a government contractor. Raises are non-existent, despite stellar performance appraisals, and the best-of-the-best are fleeing this sinking ship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop devaluing the company and your employees. Bigger is not necessarily better.

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Assessment process, project work, career mobility, training, community relations, employee development were the best parts that come to mind. Holiday parties were always fun too!

    Cons

    Salary. It was a joke what they paid junior staff. I moved to a new market through "career mobility" and made $20k less than my colleagues with less time at the firm doing similar work! Promotions were confused and hard to expect given lack of communication with team leads and junior staff. Management does NOT equal Leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to develop more mid-career employees so they don't leave for better salaries/opportunities!
