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

Pros

Stable, worldwide firm with great people and a true corporate integrity. Great array of clients across most US government agencies and some state & local, and foreign agencies. A growing healthcare practice, and limited foray back into commerical business.

Cons

None. No negative experiences while with the firm. Only left due to the US governmane sequester which de-funded my contract.

    Pros

    Used to be a really good company

    Cons

    As many folks have said Carlyle has sucked the soul from the company and you have old ralph to thank for that. Yes that Ralph who charges the firm to fly him off from florida on a private jet that he owns. Ten years ago when the firm started reducing benefits (anyone still around that remembers unlimited sick leave?) the mantra was "we will never go public." Ralph had every intention of going public and began slowly chipping away at benefits introducing the phrase "industry standard," which been ananthema to Booz culture. Then that became the driver for everything, from letting HR dictate who gets promoted vice the managers and leadership, to the stupid idea of doing away with the "beach" to allow us to get the best and brightest their clearances. Mind you, all this cost cutting did not cut the seniors bonuses. MArgins got tighter, the employees got squeezed and the seniors got paid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Those that still remember what Booz used to be like need to leave this shell of its former self and start a new company. Give it a couple years. Booz Allen hamilton will have gone the way of Booz and Co. Good luck with the SIG, you tried that concept..it was called MSW&A and you killed that.
