    Pros

    Easy to get hired and the interviews were easy. Several meetings with key people within the office that you will be working with, all seemed friendly. I felt very relaxed during the interview process.

    Cons

    Horrible company. Once you get hired it all changes. The Los Angeles office is very biased towards females unless they have a service background. They charge to the customer for things that should not be charged and are known to overcharge for work repeated, usually by an employee working at home where hours cannot be properly tracked. Example: I would do a job that took 30 minutes and another employee would repeat the same work from home and charge two hours. This company has no integrity. I left due to the lack of integrity!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the cheats (everyone) and start from scratch. Look to the uniforms for the integrity you are missing.

    Pros

    There are some very bright folks in the team and during networking events you may come up to these individuals. Most are fleeing

    Cons

    Once upon a time having a position was a career booster. Not anymore. DoD is shrinking, and Booz allen rates they charge to the DoD is too much. Competitors have come in to undercut Booz Allen (BAH). BAH has 6% 401k match, salary will stay stagnant. It's the big boys club. My biggest concern was the gap between bah leadership and bah employees. Also lying to you and telling you what you want to hear, but when it came to promotions and your review the msg was not consistent. The leadership is lacking. When it came time for proposals, they don't pay you for the 40+ hours you put in in addition to your regular 42+ hr work week. I had sacrificed numerous evenings and weekends but had no reflection in pay during review time which are now twice a year. Even if your clients wants to pay you more, BAH limits this action. BAH has their own pricing and policy. They don't want you getting paid more too quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a significant GAP between workers supporting the client in consulting and your Sr Leadership sitting in their offices. The company has turned into filling the position rather than actual consulting and taking care of the client. Bring back 401k at 10% (this is what kept BAH to retain top talent). Pay higher salary than competitors. Stop having such a larger Sr Leadership pool, fire them. The 360 feedback during review is a total joke. Sr Leadership should have to put in Consultant and Sr Consultant in their folks to interview: ONLY then will there be a full picture. Having Sr Leadership just put in their own 'big-boys' club in their interview kind of misses the point.
