Booz Allen Hamilton – Why Work With Us?

Together we make progress

At Booz Allen, we actively, intentionally, and passionately make room for our people to dream, drive, and do. When we’re not solving some of the world’s most complex challenges, we’re helping others: collaborating on innovations, volunteering in our communities, serving our nation as reservists, and raising families.

Community strong

We celebrate each other here. We march at Pride together. We listen to guest speakers during Women’s History Month. We perform community service with our veterans. We depend on each other, so we take the time to support each other.

The military is in our DNA

We’re driven to protect the vulnerable and safeguard freedom for every one of us. We were founded by a veteran, serve all four branches of the government, and are proud that a third of our workforce are former military. That shared experience informs our support of our military employees. We understand the right benefits to provide, how to help transition to a civilian career, and that the integrity and leadership of former military is exactly what we all need to thrive. 

Shattering the STEM ceiling.

Women make up half the world’s population. So why aren’t they more involved in the ideas and technology that effect every single global citizen? It’s time for women to take their rightful place at the table. As a top employer of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) talent, we’re making sure they do.  

There is no product, code, or strategy that can create progress—only people can.

That’s why our business model and purpose is to empower our people: consultants, engineers, scientists, analysts, cyber professionals—over 22,000 of us with different backgrounds and strengths who work together to make change possible.

For over a century, we’ve proven that it takes different perspectives and an unshakeable mission to solve complex problems. Together, we’ve protected our warfighters and pursued malicious hackers. We’ve shut down human traffickers and stood up to lung cancer. We’ve explored the ocean depths and helped put a man on the moon.

Right now, around the globe, our people are putting their heads and hearts together to make sure tomorrow is better than yesterday. These are some of their stories.

“Practice being confident in your views, thoughts,
and opinions.”

- Kim Carter, Operational HR Consultant

My experience at Booz Allen gave me the fundamental building blocks to eventually transition into a technical leadership role.”

- Rebecca Haug, IT Infrastructure Program Manager

Our perks work as hard as you do

Much like our people, our perks go above and beyond. In addition to medical, dental, and 401k, we provide benefits to keep you motivated, engaged, and empowered.

  • Advance: We invest in our team, pouring funding, time, training, and mentorship into the experts who challenge the impossible. Programs like Booz Allen Universities are designed to take you—and us—to the next level.
  • Explore: Connect with employees around the world with our hoteling locations and work where you travel.
  • Rest:Take time to rebuild, repair, and recharge with our flexible time off policy and Sell Back PTO Program.
  • Breathe: Our work isn't one-size-fits-all, and we aren’t either. Our people choose the clothes that fit their schedule, environment, location, and personal brand.

Our agile organization stays on the leading edge of revolutionary ideas and innovations. Whether you love solving problems, engineering ideas, or building solutions, there’s a place for you at Booz Allen.

Management consulting is in our veins. From change management to operational efficiency, we’re bringing better business practices to our clients.

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 5 years)


    Awesome coworkers, good salary and benefits ($$ for education/trainings/conferences), stock purchase program, 401k match, lots of resources for wellness and discounts. Hard work is rewarded with salary increases and promotions.


    This can depend on the clients but many client sites are old and not very nice to work at. Accomplishing things with certain clients can take longer than necessary due to environment/culture/politics within client organization.

    Easy Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (San Diego, CA) in March 2019.


    Not as formal as I thought it would be. It was a great conversation about my experience and skills. It was more about personality fit and the ability to connect with people. My interview was on a Friday and I got a call with an offer on the next Monday. It was very quick!
