Very great experience on diverse projects, however difficult to get involved in firm initiatives and mentoring.

I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Great company brand especially in DC
Lots of big company perks (holiday party, big community, smart/talented colleagues)

Cons

Leadership talked about mentorship and junior staff engagement, but actions didn't always match the rhetoric
Career goals/interests weren't always considered when staffing

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Dedicate more time to staff/team development.
Ensure team members are engaged and finding additional ways to develop and demonstrate their skills.

No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton as a contractor (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 (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
