Smart people, but traditional and bureaucratic depending on your team alignment.

Pros

Booz Allen is a consulting firm that often inherits the culture and values of the clients they work for. So, depending on which clients and teams you are aligned to, you can expect vastly different experiences. The people are smart, and the culture is not as cutthroat as some other consulting firms, benefited by the longer projects and more stable timelines. It's definitely a great place for stability, but don't expect to be challenged, or receive the growth potential and appreciation that you might get with other firms.

Cons

The biggest problem currently is the bad market. It's doing fairly well at not losing values in the face of stiffer competition and less work, but the impact can be seen everywhere, from training reduction, to cuts on perks, to less flexibility and risk taking. There's also the problem of strategic hiring of individuals who don't fit the company culture or level of intelligence, but exist as managers because of their revolving door connections with the government.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Diversify your markets, and bring younger ideas to the leadership table.

    Pros

    This section is non applicable as I cannot think of any pros of working for BAH.

    Cons

    Where to begin.....no one, not your supervisor, not your career manager, no one has your back. This is something very important to have when you are just starting at a new company. Client Staff can notify you of a change literally less than 60 minutes before a deadline and it will still fall on you....no matter what. And it will be counted against you and client staff will not even be questioned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have your employee's back since they are the ones in the trenches all day actually doing the work for you and making you look good. If you do not do this than you will continue to operate like a brand new company every 5 years, hence the 20% turnover rate.
