Booz Allen Hamilton – Why Work For Us?


Powered by our people, purpose, and passion

We are a global firm of 22,600 diverse, passionate, and exceptional people driven to excel, do right, and realize positive change in everything we do. We foster a culture of collaboration, experimentation, and discussion of new ideas, and we know that diverse minds yield diverse perspectives.

At Booz Allen, we’re intentional about supporting our employees’ passions – for community, for innovation, for problem-solving. When we’re not guiding our clients through their most critical challenges, we are serving others – volunteering in the community, serving our nation as reservists, and raising families. 

A culture of inclusion

We celebrate and value diversity in all its forms. This view extends beyond gender, ethnicity, disabilities, sexual orientation, and cultural heritage to include the many ways our people identify themselves.

Collaborating with veterans and their families is part of our DNA

Booz Allen was founded by a veteran, has continuously supported the Department of Defense since our working with our first DoD client in 1940, and, today, one-third of Booz Allen’s employees have a military background. With those credentials, it’s easy to understand why Booz Allen invests in helping its veteran, reservist, and military spouse employees thrive.

Women on the leading edge

We have a history of supporting women in the workplace. As a leader in the information technology field and a top employer of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) talent, we're committed to increasing the number of women in STEM careers.

Every company says it: “Our people make us great.” At Booz Allen, we know it’s true.

Our 22,000+ dedicated employees come from all walks of life, and hail from around the globe, but share a defining characteristic—a driving passion for solving our clients’ problems and delivering lasting value. We’re engineers and scientists; digital solutions specialists, cyber professionals, and analytics experts, and the list goes on. We’re also veterans, reservists, working parents, recent grads, and military spouses. We invite you to meet our people through our stories. See for yourself how Booz Allen is building a workforce that helps our people thrive professionally and personally.


“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





Amazing people deserve amazing perks

Much like our people, our perks go above and beyond the standard. In addition to benefits like medical, dental, and 401k, we provide a variety of offerings that will keep you motivated, engaged, and empowered.

  • Advancement Begins Here: 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.

  • Enjoy Mobility: Connect with employees around the world with our hoteling locations and work where you travel.

  • Rest Easy: Take time to rebuild, repair and recharge with our flexible time off policy and Sell Back PTO Program.

  • Dress for Your Day: Our work isn't one-size-fits-all, and we don't have to look that way either. Our employees choose the attire that fits their schedule, environment, location, and personal brand.


Become one of our problem solvers – find your fit

We’ve built a highly agile organization to stay 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.

    The world’s data flow is increasing exponentially and it’s not going to stop. To us, that’s not overwhelming: it’s awe-inspiring.

    Management consulting is in our DNA. From change management to operational efficiency, we’re bringing better business practices to our clients. We’ve been providing management consulting services to both the government and commercial sectors for over 100 years, but new challenges are emerging. Namely, adopting new tech. Keeping up with the digital age while not disrupting public services is a tough job. We are constantly adding new, tech-focused capabilities to our management consulting services because we understand the technology driven future is now.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview

    Took a while. The recruiter was not very helpful. Applied through employee referral.
    The interview was mainly about skills I developed. There were no technical questions. I think it important to understand your resume inside and out as there are a lot of questions on the what classes you have taken and what you have done in past internships.
