Pros

Great work/life balance and very flexible when it comes to work location for off client site.

Cons

Expensive to hire. Cuts to management staff and benefits haven't done much to compensate for high overhead costs.

    Pros

    Teams were well managed with lots of upward mobility. If you were able to sell it and/or build it your career moved forward and you were given all the support you needed. I was always only a phone call away from an expert in any field, we truly had the best and brightest in the industry for a time.

    Cons

    Things changed after Carlisle took over and defense spending slowed. Loaded up with debt it became more difficult to make long-term investments and take big bets. Too many senior staff chasing too few opportunities in order to keep thier jobs resulted in significant exodos of talent to other industries.

    Advice to Management

    Ralph and his cronies need to retire and allow the next generation of leaders to take the helm.

    Pros

    Booz Allen has a well established, good reputation; there are some really high quality people to work with; there are up-and-coming innovative solutions that employees have access to before the broader market; flexible hours in some projects as well as flexible work locations; Booz Allen facilities offer pleasant environments to work in

    Cons

    Benefits and compensation are below competitive market value; Booz Allen direction seems to be to reward mid-upper management for the work of lower level employees while keeping lower level employees under-compensated; Booz Allen is a short-term, resume builder, not a place to make a career of for most people

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees higher salaries, take a look at what other consulting firms are paying for the same roles and skills and start competing with them instead of falling short. You will retain and acquire more skill across the board and continue to build a successful firm.
