    Pros

    Love my team.
    Diversity of the work
    Telework
    Benefits
    Rewards programs
    Tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    Low raises
    I feel like they are not keeping up with the location market - it's very expensive to live here.
    They are always wanting to find ways to retain talent - but if they are not keeping up with the cost outside the firm then we might look to go else where.

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    BAH employees are smart and capable, typically team players, and highly autonomous. I loved the people that I worked with.

    Cons

    You can make more money elsewhere, but it comes at the cost of flexibility. To me, it wasn't worth the trade off.

    Advice to Management

    There are lots of emails, in-person meetings, phone meetings, and otherwise extra meetings to attend that are all done in addition to the 40 hours of billable work each week. Perhaps this could be streamlined.

    Smart people, hard workers, interesting projects

    Office politics and no annual bonuses

    Give out annual bonuses to junior level folks like every other consulting firm. Also contribute into the 401k on a paycheck basis instead of a lumpsum at the end of the year.

    I was on the strategy and operations team in the Atlanta office and absolutely loved it. Got to do real, client facing work and was challenged every day to improve my game.

    Pay is not as great as other firms, very few private sector projects, has the name recognition of an elite firm but not the attitude

    Advice to Management

    management is doing great, need to expand more in private sector and less in technology, we can become a great strategy firm again
