Pros

Great people to work with - smart, energetic. Collaborative - pull together to get a job done. Fine benefits - love the 401K contribution, although not guaranteed, has been consistent for years.

Cons

It's all about the money (i.e., profit) these days, since going public about 2.5 years ago. Free bagels on Friday's - gone. Every person for themselves now. Hoteling has broken up the team spirit and camaraderie is disappearing fast, now I room witha different person every day, people I don't know and don't have much in common with. Might as well work from home. If one is stationed at a client site, it's even worse. The work spots for "visiting employees" are generally terrible - noisy, crowded, and generally not conducive to serious work. Visiting employees have no "rights" to reserve conference rooms and do other things that hotelers can do. I can't see why a new employee would want to stay long.

Advice to Management

Times are tough, but the management voice is mum. Morale is on a downward slide. Need to bring back the people-orientation.

    Pros

    Benefits and the ability to take time off, however, you will suffer upon your return after a vacation. Salary is ok and will be matched with the market when you threaten to leave.

    Cons

    If you are not within the "in" crowd, in can be very difficult to move up. It feels like you have two jobs when you work for them, the client work and the BAH work. Most of the time the BAH work takes up more of your time and leaves your current clients in a lurch when they actually need something from you. Their recent debarment in the San Antonio office sums up the way they do business as an overall and if you don't believe in that way, you will be blackballed from the moment you speak out about it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a close eye on the San Antonio office, I hope at this point, the corporate office of BAH has identified some significant problems with the middle level management there and corrects their issues.
