    Pros

    The team I work with is top-notch. Everyone is extremely smart and very motivated to do quality work. The work-life balance aspects of the job are pretty well-respected and my senior manager has been a great advocate for me during my tenure here.

    Cons

    The past several years have seen some not-so-great changes to the firm I joined nearly 7 years ago. Everything seems to be governed by cost these days and with contracts becoming harder and harder to win, the "Booz Allen" quality vs quantity equation doesn't seem to be working out. I used to consider myself an employee of the firm first, and a contractor second. Not anymore...

    Advice to Management

    Rethink the way you communicate major team decisions to lower and middle range employees; be up front about the total change in policy regarding no "beach" anymore since that has come as a total surprise.

    Pros

    - Compared to other consulting firms, the people are much more talented
    - Good benefits (401k / stock plan / insurance)

    Cons

    - Quality of leadership especially by the Senior Associates - Can't be trusted
    - Although I've heard there are some good Career Managers and Resource Managers, I was stuck with - some poor ones.
    - Easy to get laid off after 30 days of bench time.
    - Work/Life balance
    - Poor on-boarding, difficult to figure out the culture
    - Very poor internal communications especially from the Sr. Associates
