    Pros

    very professional culture - people are treated with respect. highly collaborative, generally supportive environment. many, many bright, highly skilled staff who work very hard to deliver excellent products for clients

    Cons

    imagine building your home on loose soil - soon you would see cracks in the foundation and you would have to tear it down and rebuild over and over again. that defines booz allen. without hyperbole, the company is in constant flux - always going through some sort of major reorganization, replacement of staff management/evaluation programs, or some other sweeping change. this creates tremendous confusion, instability, and uncertainty among all staff. combine this with a singular focus on cost reduction, a wholesale exit (both forced and voluntary) of the old guard, and you have a company trying to figure out who it wants to be when it grows up (which is ironic for a 100 year old company).

    Advice to Management

    pick a strategy and stick with it.

    Pros

    The best thing about working here has been the flexibility of work arrangements which make it great to balance parenting (and all the driving and work from home that can sometimes require) with work (working from home not an issue). That has been of HUGE value to me as a single mom

    Cons

    The place has changed radically in the past couple years. There is a younger set of top leadership taking over, and while modernizing and refreshing is good, it is coming with a lot of politics, turf wars, horribly puffed up egos, and bad decisions. Morale is at an all time low, benefits have been eroded back to general going rates across commercial industry, so they no longer make up for the toxic environment. Pay increases are pitiful due to the tough federal contracting environment. You can get the same benefits, better compensation, and better career path at other companies, I'm finding out.
