    Be loyal to your staff, profitability is important but trying to cut costs by all means is not expected from a company such as BAH.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You have a wide degree of latitude in the types of projects you pursue across a wide variety of government agencies, and developing your professional career long-term is emphasized. When you are very persistent, even aggressive, teams will work with you to find something you're really interested in.

    Cons

    Firm is really more of a 'contracting' than a 'consulting' organization. Firm is very security / DoD oriented, and not as much emphasis on other business areas. Can be very stressful finding new contracts when current engagement ends. Assessment process is extremely cumbersome - takes about 20-30 hours per employee.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the individual and team dynamic - not having a desk to sit or place to store things such as personal photos in a Booz Allen office is tough. Also, with slowdown in gov't market, firm should be taking more aggressive approach to commercial markets.
