    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time

    Pros

    Prestigious company, treats employees well, tries to keep employees engaged, culture of "reachback" to get help with areas of unfamiliarity

    Like any consulting company, "at will" employment, tries to keep employees on bench as long as possible, but no guarantees, and no severance

    Advice to Management

    Get the old swagger back

    Pros

    Booz Allen pays very well

    Cons

    Pros

    Booz has a strong internal support system for its consultants. Leadership actively and publicly supports diversity, which is refreshing.

    Cons

    The company is very large. As an associate, you need to advocate for new consulting work. Sometimes feels like you need to be part of the "in crowd" to get choice assignments. There is a lot of pressure to maintain billable hours.
