What is paid time off like at Booz Allen Hamilton?

Pros

- Great pay and benefits (medical, dental, vision, PTO, 401k matching (5%), tuition reimbursement, legal services, child care, corporate discounts, a lot of other resources). - Travel, training, and career advancement opportunities. - Incentives/recognition for high performers. - High degree of accountability. - 100+ year old company with refined and efficient processes. Overall, an excellent company that I was happy to have been a part of.

Cons

- Fairly rigid rank structure with people almost "fearing" a Senior Associate or Principal, let alone a Vice President. I understand chain of command and maintaining respect for superiors, but some managers made it clear they were in a higher class. - Company wide emails, policies and trainings that where driven by politics and/or over-inclusivity. While I am not surprised, it was quite annoying at times.

Advice to Management

Be sure to hire employees at the rank/salary commensurate with their education, experience, location and industry trends. Unfortunately, I witnessed senior hiring managers deter excellent candidates by offering them a less than stellar starting salary, compared to other large defense contracting companies.
