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.

    Pros

    The company has an excellent culture of sharing intellectual capital, collaboration,and mentorship. Salaries and benefits are still better than competitors, and I really feel valued in my job. Leadership is good and stable; people you actually look up to.

    Cons

    The firm is moving from a pure consulting firm to a personal services firm and is not diversifying outside the government sector fast enough to mitigate the risk of a shrinking government. Benefits are also reducing more and more every year to stay competitive. Somewhat to be expected after going public and the downturn in the economy, but still unsettling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For a firm that prides itself on its change experts, leadership does need to do a better job on socializing change internally and being transparent on the decisions they make to stay competitive in the market. They also need to be more bullish about getting into new markets, particularly the energy and financial industries.
