I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton as a contractor for more than a year

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

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

    Pros

    Decent salary and benefits; didn't force acquired employees completely into "big Booz" culture.

    Cons

    Poorly handled acquisition
    HR policies are not pro-employee
    Company skates by on it's former reputation as a good company to work for.
    Employees are not individually valued, despite corporate party line of "our people are our most important asset"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan an acquisition before executing it, work out how HR issues will be handled, keep employees informed.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
