Pros

Culture is young to experience, great working atmosphere, great benefits and alot of opportunity to gain new skills, always feel you can voice where you want to go and have the career manager back you on it. Great mentors as long as they stay with the company.

Cons

Tough to obtain the pay you should earn given the market and looking for experienced candidates with low salaries. With tighter scrutiny on contracts and the competitive field, Booz Allen is back at the drawing board in learning how to win competitive work. After Booz went public the feel of employee's first has gone and it's now bottom line first. More emphasis on the employee's is going to be needed in order to stay where they need to be.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start having higher level management be realistic about what we go after and arm middle management with the tools to discuss changes going on within the company. We're losing talent.

    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.

    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.
