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

Pros

Smart people, great to work with, great training, focus on work-life balance, decent pay, good variety of projects

Cons

Need to be a strong self advocate. HR is awful, do not expect any help from them. If your team changes a lot you can easily get lost in the shuffle and end up on projects that are not interested to you or good for your skillset or development.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Core Values. Commitment to People Development. Leaner performance assessment process than prior years. Entrepreneurial culture; provide tools to empower people to align opportunities to career goals within area of current expertise and areas of interest. Growing startup culture and new parternerships to local D.C. startup community.

    Cons

    Highly virtualized organization that has lead to disconnect between home teams and client delivery teams. Over emphasis on profitability that has reduced time allowed to find new projects resulting in a talent drain. Used to be a place one goes to build a career, now it feels more like one is just worried about their current project only. Compensation framework is lagging industry.

    Pros

    The salary and benefits are great. The work is very interesting depending on the market you work in. The company has a very good mentorship program. Promotions come fast if you work in sales and land a big client.

    Cons

    The culture, depending upon what office you work out of, is cut throat. The company has good and bad leaders. The good ones are new to the company and do not try to force the "Booz Allen way" down your throat. The bad leaders have been raised up within the company and have the "kiss the ring" mentality. If you do not bleed Booz Allen you are put on a pip and let go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house and bring in new management with fresh ideas. Stop trying to sell the "Booz Allen way" but just re-establish a normal work environment where there is trust between the employees.
