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

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsBooz 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.

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementDiversify your markets, and bring younger ideas to the leadership table.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great company in 2007 but has made significant changes and shifting since publicly traded and defense market decline.
