I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (more than an year)

Pros

BAH encourages their employees to learn and to work with others to complete projects. One of the big pushes is networking. We have meetings, lunches, discussions and presentations available on a regular basis to help network, meet other employees, and/or learn more on a topic or a BAH offering.

Cons

Working on proposals for new work or to continue current work can be time heavy and exhausting. I've worked multiple weeks of 12-14+ hour days on this type of work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Acknowledge a broader spectrum of employees for projects. It seems that many people do the work for the success, but the same few get noticed all the time.

    Pros

    Growth opportunities if you actively seek them out and keep that in mind when projects are being offered.

    Cons

    Low compensation, and not much focus on retaining and developing young talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on retaining young talent and not just throwing people into projects just so they are billable.

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very prestigious company with (formerly) incredible benefits. Opportunity to learn a lot about life and business through osmosis alone.

    Cons

    Bought by Carlyle in '08 (private equity firm), as well as its adaptation to current economic times, is starting to make BAH just another firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to get BAH back to its roots pre-Carlyle (as much as feasible in these times). Find a way to keep talent around during challenging times.
