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

Pros

The most dedicated professionals in the government consulting industry. A real pleasure to work around top caliber people motivated by the mission. And ethics still mean something here.

Cons

Historically, Booz Allen always paid less but the opportunity to work under great leadership and pursue a career here made up for that. The new value proposition has the job (and career) ending with the contract for more and more people, making Booz Allen too much like its higher-paying competitors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leadership seems to have trouble enunciating a vision and executing against it. Major firm-wide policies are rolled out and then quietly abandoned 6 months later. Senior leadership should focus more energy on firming up client connections.

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

    Pros

    Very good at teaching the consulting and business development business. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Too much management (in 2009) with bonus compensation on the backs of mid-career leadership. Incentivize those that produce, not those that approve timecards.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They have a well known reputation in the Government Services industry.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no work/balance while working with Booz. They are only concerned with their bottom line. Recently underwent a reorganization and cut salaries and benefits company wide.
