I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The compensation is on par with competitors. The long hours is a legitimate excuse to escape problems at home. The social networking via Yammer is the best way to find out what's going on inside the company.

Cons

Poor raises, poor internal communications (aside from Yammer), hotelling sucks, the milestones and client deliverables make it tough to take any time off. There's nothing positive to say about the culture, but you need a thick skin to survive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Booz Allen needs to do a better job of recognizing employees who are doing well and stay engaged with everyone and keep them working together as a team.

    Pros

    The overall pay, benefits, and compensation are competitive. There is a great variety of work to choose from and it is interesting and challenging. If you work on client site you generally can just do you job and avoid the corporate politics.

    Cons

    The culture is now focused on billability and people are totally expendable. If you lose your contract you lose your job. Senior Management can generally not be trusted. Many staff are having to take significant pay cuts when the company bids contracts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more clearly and concisely with staff. Admit you have a problem and then move forward to solve it.

    Pros

    The company hires many high-caliber people and you have access to high-quality resources for professional development. The skills you learn at the company will serve you well when you make your next career move.

    Cons

    The organizational structure is such that only a tiny minority of people can be promoted to the highest levels, so at a certain point, most people reach a plateau and must decide whether to stay constant or move on to another chapter in their career.
