Pros

Booz is a great place to work. Lots of flexibility as far as opportunities and work life balance. Great first job. They are always looking at ways to improve upon the way that they operate as an organization and put their employees first. They really understand that without its consultants they would not be able to achieve the amount of success it has and it shows. Tons of training opportunities although that time doesn't count towards your billable hours so you have to be careful not dig yourself into a hole you can't get out of.

Cons

It is easy to get "lost" but this really depends on your management team and your ability to network. The company is large and sometimes inexperience can hurt you. In some situations you may be without a project and though there are some available, you are not qualified enough for the position. It's not always easy to cross markets once you start out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure those in charge of the daily operations of employees, Lead Associates and above, actually care about the wellness and livelihood of those that report to them.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to continue serving your country post-military.

    Cons

    Opportunities are restricted to geographic locations around military installations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    BAH upper management are pseudo-military. More time and energy is wasted on sexual harassment training than on core competency training IOT give the appearance of walking in lock-step with DOD.

    Pros

    Really enjoyed the people and experience as a whole - Pentagon was a cool place to work at. Both client and Booz co-workers were great. Hours can't be beat, was rarely asked to work a minute over 40 hours. Got 3 weeks vacation and 6% $ for $ 401k matching.

    Cons

    Money doesn't seem to be all that competitive anymore. Benefits in general took a massive hit since the company went public and are continuing to decline. Our CEO keeps sending mass emails saying how great the company is doing as the profit increases while our revenue decreases. I wonder how they are able to accomplish this...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop cutting basic benefits and salaries. Gotta draw the line between reasonable cost savings and completely losing the ability to hire talented employees. This only works short term until talented people begin to leave gradually.
