Booz Allen provides a comprehensive and integrated package to provide not only competitive compensation, retirement benefits, health benefits, and work-life and wellness programs, but also flexible work arrangements, leave programs, career growth opportunities, and much more.
Best: Comprehensive package, everything is above average and pretty good Worst: Seems like they keep getting worse every year
I really like the benefits - I don't have any cons.
The benefits package seem to be industry standard, which is pretty good
By the time you read this, it will shrink. Health care is OK, though not as good as others, and used to be better. Parking benefit is nice. 6.5% retirement "match" is very good. But it's all shrinking year after year.
Health package is fine and seems acceptable
Benefits are average. For 30+ years you'd get 10% of your salary in your 401(k), sadly that went away.
Teleworking options, not tethered to a location. You have to accrue time off, which is frustrating for making plans. FSA account. average health insurance options, lousy 401k.
Average benefits package for a large organization. Not exceptional but decent. 6% 401k match is nice; expensive health insurance options.
Very high deductible - higher ups in the firm have a separate benefits package than client-facing consultants.
The PTO policy is not responsible. I see weekly emails for people with "qualifying catastrophic events" (usually death of a spouse/child) who are in need of Paid Time Off to be with their families. Unfortunately, Booz Allen doesn't really do enough to strike a healthy work-life balance. Our health plans aren't great either, and our retirement plans are absolute garbage. For my own retirement, I can't even invest in an index fund. It's some garbage vendor who doesn't really offer the comprehensive choice most employees want out of their retirement plans. Also, the matching option isn't very generous at all. The Working Advantage promotions, which are so highly touted, really aren't that great. Even the Booz Allen Holiday Parties cost $75 for each non-employee ticket (so if you want to take your significant other, be prepared to fork over at least $75). The "paternal" leave sucks. 10 working days off for fathers, and not much more for mothers. Meanwhile, in a lot of flourishing businesses, new mothers and fathers get 6 months. Again, this company is all about exploiting the lowest 3 ranks to the benefit of the top 3. It's a pyramid scheme. The entire business model for this "management consulting" -- read: federal contractor -- is based on ripping off the taxpayer by finding problems, proposing solutions, but never actually fixing anything. That's the only way profits keep rising. It's how most of DC runs, honestly. But it's a damn shame when Senior Associates, Principals, and Officers make a killing off the American taxpayer but everyone else is asking for PTO donations when their kids die, or are barely scraping by, or have garbage retirement. Don't buy the propaganda, folks. Booz Allen is dying a slow but very private death and the people at the top know it. And if the federal tax money ever dries up, this business will go under. God willing, that day is coming sooner than later. We don't need more $700B defense budgets -- we need healthcare, better education, infrastructure. Don't be lured by this company. It's all style, no substance.
