    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay, typically worked less than 50 hours a week, many locations

    Cons

    Work can be pointless, didn't get to see nice polished products put into effect, management is more concerned about pleasing the client than actually delivering ideas that are useful/long lasting.

    For strategy consulting at Booz, if you went to school for Political Science or International Relations, you may love it here. If you went to school for something where you plan to make immediate change/improvements or even changes within a few years- don't work here. The projects I have been on are laughable-- the American public would chastise the government even more if they knew they were funneling funds into crap like this.

    I am leaving the firm and taking a huge pay cut, all voluntarily-- solely because I can't "fake it" and act like we are a bunch of experts on topics that don't really matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To upper management- get out of "strategy consulting." The government will not be able to sustain our DoD and other agencies with scorns of contractors who are all experts in whatever.
    Stay in the IT field, but use the Booz Allen proprietary stuff and start trying to work with REAL organizations, such as publically traded or private companies. By REAL, I mean companies that have goals to meet- ie profit or sustaining their work force, not just continuously gaining new business with the ever failing government.
