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

Pros

Throughout my entire Booz Allen career, I've been blessed with great managers who take care of me from a professional standpoint. I've been challenged and have had the opportunity to experience work outside my comfort zone. There is tons of training available to use.

Cons

Company is huge and there are times where one can get lost. The annual assessment conceptual is a great idea (360 assessment process), but it takes so much time and effort that assessment cycle seems like another full-time project. Although the firm is making changes to reduce our burden, but we'll see how it gets executed.

Advice to Management

There is too much politics at the firm making it hard to just do work. I think the talent is getting a bit watered down as most of the time we are pressured to hire instead of the waiting for the right person to come along. Makes getting tasks done a bit more difficult.

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

    Pros

    Work with high energy, smart people.

    Cons

    A lot of double standards and inconsistency with policy.

    Advice to Management

    Work toward consistent policies that allow the revenue generators to do their jobs and eliminate useless redundancy. Also work toward reducing class separation by those that should be leaders.

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

    Pros

    The firm (in general) has flexible working arrangements. There is also ability for advancement, but the promotion is very structured. You really have to work hard to get promoted here.

    Cons

    The company seems to care much more about being profitable since it has gone public. Management is always going to responsible to shareholders, but shouldn't be at the expense of the employees.
