I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than 10 years

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    If you like the government consulting space, booz allen is the right place to do it. They provide a great culture, competitive pay, and are invested in the growth of their employees. One thing that always amazed me is how they were so nimble for such a large organization. There are umpteen opportunities to advance your career through internal and external learning.

    Cons

    The two biggest problems I saw were a) There is really no career path for non-BizDev folks b) Promotions aren't completely merit based. This gets frustrating in the long run. Also, as the company has grown, it's become less personal. There were several strategic changes that alienated the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Considering that Booz Allen does have a huge technology professionals population, there needs to be a clearer path to growth for these folks. Not just a ribbon, real growth.
