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

Pros

I had a great working relationship with the senior level executives who I supported. The benefits were great, I was paid well, and the work schedule flexibility was very good.

Cons

The downturn in the marketplace resulted in employees losing their jobs and it affected employee morale.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be careful not to overwork Administrative Professionals by giving them to many executives to support.

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Large, respected consulting firm with abundant opportunities for 'go getters'. Compensation and benefits are still excellent although the trend towards adopting 'Industry Best Practices' feels more like 'Industry Averaging'. Strong appreciation for diversity.

    Cons

    1. Quality of leadership at the Lead Associate/Senior Associate level is spotty.
    2. 360 degree annual performance review process is questionable in it's effectiveness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees quit supervisors, not companies. Recommend Lead Associates/Senior Associates be required (and given the bandwidth) to complete a core curriculum of mandatory leadership/management courses within the first six months of their promotion.

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

    Pros

    Booz Allen stresses the importance of delivering the highest quality both in the products produced for clients and in day to day client interactions. The compensation is fair and promotions up to the Associate levels are within the reach of anyone willing to work hard.

    Cons

    If you want a job the work-life balance is reasonable, if you want a career then it is work-work, not work-life. There are big differences in how teams operate within Booz Allen, so it is more like a lot of little companies within the company, this can be difficult for new employees to determine if their concerns are the company or the team they are assigned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need to have a way to make decisions faster, push decision making down to the lowest level possible.
