I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Recognized as an industry leader (they invented the PERT chart), had incredibly dedicated client-facing employees, diverse range of clients give lots of opportunity for interesting work, generous 401K.

Cons

Willing to tolerate abusive clients for far too long.
Post-IPO management occasionally has a really bad idea (Take Share was the worst), runs with it for too long, then overcompensates to correct their mistake--the client-facing employees pay for management's sins.
Have come down with credentialitis--more focused on what you are (PMP, CCIE, MBA, etc) v. who you are.

Advice to Management

Start updating resumes and talking nice to Booz & Co., because they're probably going to buy back BAH at fire sale prices in a couple years. If you don't want to do that, focus on delivering quality work for the client. That's how you get long-term growth.
