Booz Allen Hamilton

Considering moving laterally to Guidehouse for a small raise in base pay, TC an additional 8-10k depending on bonus. Currently have a Public Trust and BAH not looking to get me higher clearance. GH would be on a secret level project. How valuable is that secret level clearance?

    High potential firm that is actively addressing its shortcomings

    Sep 13, 2010 - Associate I in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Intelligent colleagues - Project work is mostly strategic and aligned to c-suite priorities - Exposure to several different projects and clients - Opportunity to b ecome "famous" for something, if you like - Strong focus on improving company culture and people value proposition

    Cons

    - Work-life balance is possible...as long as you manage it and accept the work part will be high - Limited in terms of infrastructure, general support and technology (not an area of high investment since spin-off) as compared to larger firms (though this is being addressed) - Limited training and development (again, this is being addressed) - Heavy emphasis on powerpoint production...sometimes feeling like 'overkill' both on client engagements and for internal initiatives

    Booz & Co Middle East

    Apr 23, 2009 - Senior Associate in Dubai
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Booz & Co is the most prestigious strategy consulting firm in the Middle East and has the longest presence in the region. This has allowed it to systematically win the most interesting projects in the region and in most industries. It also has the most office locations (6 regional offices) and is pretty flexible regarding location of staff which is a welcome flexibility that competitors do not offer. Finally, the brand recognition in the region is just amazing. This greatly facilitates client development efforts.

    Cons

    Booz has earned this reputation from the hard work its members put in their assignments. This leads to a zero work life balance for team members and has a high impact on quality of life as well as family life.
