    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time

    Pros

    Great culture, and there is always work as an associate Subcontracts admin. Most Client Staff are great to work with. the Subcontracts team is very interactive and work closely with each other. If you dont know it, just ask, no one will undermine your work.

    Cons

    The internal and Government processes are intense and takes a lot of know how.
    Some client staff are difficult, but manageable because of great Subcontracts Leadership

    Advice to Management

    Great Subncontracts Management team, although work is hard, the management is great.
