Pros

Booz Allen does have lots of contracts that you can transfer too

Cons

The corporate structure is built around working hard with little incentive for the said effort. If you have a bad Career Manager, your career with Booz Allen is stunted

Advice to Management

Look into smaller companies. They may not have as many contracts, but they will appreciate you for the work you do and do the best they can to keep you with them. Also, they have lower overhead and can pay far more that a company like Booz Allen.

    Pros

    Still has a good name.

    Cons

    Company has an identity crisis, is slow to adapt to changing markets, and is often more beauracratic than the Federal government.

    Advice to Management

    Night of 1000 knives.

    Pros

    No pros. Well, wait a minute. There was one pro. During "orientation" we were told, in no uncertain terms, that we would be expected to put in a minimum of 10-hour days. This is "billable" time, you see. The place is like "the firm" except we're not dealing with lawyers but contract slaves. So the one "pro" is that the place was honest about using people.

    Cons

    It's a sweat shop. If that's what you want, jump right in! It's actually beyond me why anyone would work for a place like this. Want to throw your life away? Go right ahead. Have fun. Seems to be what much of America has to put up with, sadly. Just know this: there are many, many better places to work. Let me echo Nancy Reagan, otherwise a downer: Just say no.

    Advice to Management

    Haha. Good luck.
