    Pros

    Strong culture with emphasis on respect, collegiality, diversity, and productivity. No drama, no yelling, no abusive bosses. Strong focus on development of technical skills, then development of business development skills and strategy. A great place to hone one's professional skills, see how an efficient corporation works, and develop consulting skills. Competitive compensation, especially for junior staff.

    Cons

    Booz can be a very demanding place to work, and very stressful during government proposal season. Life/work balance gets some lip service, but most people who are getting ahead at Booz live for their jobs, and are very focused on doing what is right, pleasing their bosses, and being subservient to clients. I think for most people Booz is not a fun place to work. It can be very serious, cold, and impersonal. With staff dispersed across government client sites it can be very challenging for staff to stay connected to their managers. It is also common within Booz for people to be very hard working but not get recognized for it.

    Advice to Management

    Booz is an adaptive organization, but still very much a conventional one. They haven't yet figured out how to embrace the business ethos that has come from Silicone Valley, Apple, Zappos, etc. Booz leadership looks to innovate in the company structure, operations, and service offerings, but they don't spend as much time or effort figuring out how to innovate within the organizational culture--updating the People Model has been a good start, but the firm needs to do much more to make Booz a place that attracts and retains creative, innovative people. Booz is a great place for people who love to make lists, check boxes, navigate bureaucracy,and do what is told to them by their managers, but we do not have an environment that is conducive to unleashing the true creative potential of our people.
