Great company of highly motivated professionals

Current Employee - Lead Technologist in McLean, VA
Current Employee - Lead Technologist in McLean, VA

I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Great working environment with the opportunity to work with other highly motivated professionals. Able to learn a great deal with good benefits.

Cons

Work/Life balance has been on a steady decline as they "encourage" you to work specifically on-site at client environments. Given the primary focus of the business is still currently working with DoD, contracts tend to be a bit on the volatile side given the current political climate.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Over the past few years, have felt very disjoint from organization as a whole. Lack of team building activities leads to becoming disenchanted with working for Booz Allen versus being an employee for the client themselves. Fostering organizational/team culture should be better emphasized to encourage a sense of organizational community that is currently lacking.

    The recruiting process tends to take a long time.

    Just another beltway bandit

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    At one time BAH was a company that provided great work for employees and good service to clients. They actually were a consulting company. Now it has become a staff augmentation machine interested in placing "butts in seats". This is unlike the business models of the CSC's, LM's, GD IT's, etc. of the beltway bandits that service the federal government. At one time there was a "secret sauce" at BAH. However, those days are long gone. I left on my own and was not laid off like so many others.

    Cons

    If you want to work for just another beltway bandit this is your place. However, if you do not get a job offer from them get in you car and drive around the beltway. You will find another company just like them that you will probably hire you. The leadership at BAH is stuffy. Be prepared to drink the cool aid ever day that reminds you that you are "the best". Once apron a time that was true. But that was years ago. The company is now publicly traded just like the CSC's of the world. The bottom line is all that matters. PERIOD. Clients and employees are in a distant second and third place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. You do not know how to change. You are truly "old school" and that will be the company's down fall.
