    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Name brand recognition, continuing education benefits are available to all, not just a percentage of employees, and exposure to some very intelligent and talented colleagues.

    Cons

    Arrogance.

    The inflexible corporate structure does not lend itself towards putting together the best qualified teams of professionals to succeed at customer solutions. Principals and Sr. Associates often assign unqualified consultants simply because their performance numbers are skewed towards employees in their downstream being billable before seeking competence from across teams.

    I have seen leadership turn a blind eye to providing the best solution for a client if it went against quarterly profit goals.

    Rapid growth from 2001 to 2009 created a shift in the firm from consulting to staff augmentation. Pressures upon Sr. Associates to meet business development goals led to pursuit of government staff augmentation contracts that were actually beneath BAH's former stature as a leading consultancy.

    Advice to Management

    Rid the firm of outside performance pressures due to being a publically traded firm and return to privately held ownership. Focus on profit margins versus year-after-year growth which has actually led to dilution of your brand.
