    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Training.
    Great working from home policy.
    Nice, professional folks

    Cons

    Equity owned.
    Talk of work life balence ? there is none esp. if your working proposals, some managers expect replys to emails at 11pm.
    Clumsy security staff when working with agencies.
    More employees than there are uncleared positions - has become, "everyone for themselves" when finding billable hours.
    For you cleared professionals out there be very careful accepting offers with contigencies from this company, they have been giving start dates without customer acceptance and security paperwork already in place..all this = stress and RIF

    Advice to Management

    By back the Gov. business or hope someone else buys it soon so you can get back to caring about your customers and employees
