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

    Pros

    Brilliant co-workers, from multiple disciplines. An ethical company that aims to grow through providing real value to their customers.

    Cons

    The company grew very quickly after 9/11 (As did many defense contractors) and they now have a glut of middle managers who are (IMO) over paid and who have no clear mission. There is a constant churn of reinvention, as the company tries to retain younger workers, lower its indirect cost structure, and figure out what all those people with 10+ years experience are doing day to day..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your internal processes. You can't run a fortune 500 company on Excel spreadsheets. Also, take a good hard look at the people who were promoted during the "good times" and see what they are doing now. It won't be easy, but many of them are not providing value and are simply inventing work to protect their turn... You don't need 100 "assistants to the sub-account manager"...
