Pros

Company has a good name, they do a lot of interesting things, diverse projects

Cons

Company has a bad reputation, does not pay competitively and doesn't plan well - hires a lot of people then lays them off

Advice to Management

Although it's hard to plan future growth in today's economy and environment, possibly knowing more about your competition would serve you well. Don't pigeon-hole people and think more about the necessity for a decent work-life balance.

    Pros

    Training, better than average medical benefits, work hour flexibility perfect place for the workaholic

    Cons

    No perks...it's all about the $$.. Raises are LOW (0%-1%).. it's all about quartiles.. Obvious to those of us that are on the lines that we are not valued..no freebies like before going public..it was at least a way for mgmt to say thank you. Oh the leadership levels (Lead Associate and above) still get all the perks... Lunches, dinners, budget, etc... And let's not forget the bonus the Sr. Associates and above get... I know several Sr. Associates that work less and not only get paid more, but get rewarded with a bonus. Management leads with blinders on..don't know 1/2 the staff who work for them. Major inequity across the firm wrt awards.

    Advice to Management

    You've lost the very foundation that made Booz Allen Hamilton elite... Congrats for making this firm no different than any of the other large firms.

    Pros

    Great benifits, with various positions around the Washinton, DC metro area! Multiple home locations near work areas!

    Cons

    Management can sometimes be cumbersome, leaving employees hanging in the breeze even with advance notification of losing positions. Employees are burden with moving up/participate in development of contracting proposals or move out in favor of cheaper and younger labor force!

    Advice to Management

    Provide employees with opportunity to move to cyber related positions! This will maintain competive edge and even growth. Also gives a better timed alternative for those who may not want to upgrade or venture into new realm to remain in the company in a leadership! Now is the time Booz, now is the time!
