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

    Pros

    The hiring process was fairly quick.

    Cons

    Pay raises were minimal. Received same line every year "Due to economic downturn you're getting a minimal raise in-spite of your great year" . Changed there retirement plan within 6 months of me working, was one of the reasons I accepted the offer. Work schedule was awful, 24/7 rotating schedule unless you were part of the in crowd. Every year take away vacation time.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people better.

    Pros

    Has some good benefits like 401k matching and more premium healthcare packagers.

    Cons

    I have been with the firm four years and have had 5 different career managers. With that much turnover in team management, it's hard to get ahead. It's a frustrating place, especially when the team seems to value social gatherings over actual hard work. So long as you become friends with your manager, you'll get ahead.
