Pros

Bright and motivated colleagues. Well-established in the firm's industry with a broad business base. Employees have a high degree of autonomy. Employees have an extraordinarily high level of mentoring opportunities. Excellent benefits including education (which is highly encouraged).

Cons

Used to be a much better place to work before going public. Strongly dependent upon a narrow market (Government professional services) and vulnerable to changes in political winds. The Government market is cycling downward (in 2014), which is reducing job opportunities and pay. Senior staff are having a high degree of difficulty staying employed due to cost constraints imposed by the Government customer.

Advice to Management

Need to put more effort into retaining experienced staff in order to be positioned to prosper in the future up-cycle.

    Pros

    They had a benefits and compensation package that was fairly competitive and seemed on-par for their industry.

    Cons

    Your supervisor can approach anyone that worked with you and ask if there were any issues with your performance and/or relationship. This creates a very invasive and biased per-review performance. My impression working for BAH is that they only care about presenting a polished image than about the quality of their product.

    Advice to Management

    BAH seems to attract the worst type A personality types that are only focused on profitability and care little for the employee themselves.

    Pros

    Find there is plenty of opportunities to engage with Senior Leadership. Work-life balance is appreciated. Tailored review process to career aspirations - not one-size fits all.

    Cons

    Can be on projects for a long time and the opportunity to change projects is limited. Compensation based on specific project billing rate.
