Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Annapolis Junction, MD
Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Annapolis Junction, MD

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

    Pros

    Paid training, work/life/ balance and benefits, great place to start your career.

    Cons

    Compensation on the lower side for information security, internal politics, tough to find billable work (3 months to do so or you are out), may have to do a job not specifically aligned to your skill set.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See where your employees really want to go with their careers and by all means, help make that happen. Don't make promises you cannot keep.

    Not the company I sought to work for...

    Current Employee - Associate in McLean, VA
    Current Employee - Associate in McLean, VA

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