    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good legacy to lean on with some hardworking employees trying to steer management into the right direction
    Teleworking (if you are already acclimated to the culture). It'll require extra effort to connect with your team if you are new
    Daycare facility in McLean campus
    ECAP (it provides retirement funding even if you contribute 0%)
    PTO (about 15-25 days depending on tenure)

    Cons

    The company had recent layoffs this spring (2012) to make its financial goals. How it handled the layoffs was chaotic and poorly executed.

    Its current focus is on out-sourcing, cutting cost, and restructuring. As a result morale is at an all time low. Most are looking around for other opportunities and can not stomach some of management's cut throat decisions.

    If you are a working mother, this may not be the most supportive place if you go on maternity leave.

    Advice to Management

    Live up to your core values. Although some actions maybe legal, go beyond that and do what's right.

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting work and smart people. Opportunity to what interests you, lots of resources to learn and self teach. Former NSA director is an executive.

    Cons

    Salary is way below the competition. Stuffy environment, losing long standing contracts lately because of being over priced and not having the talent they used to.

    Advice to Management

    Go private again and get rid of the management that's in charge now. Remember what made you great back in the day and follow that strategy again
