I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Although I worked primarily for a single government client, I was able to spend about 20% of my time on other assignments, some with private industry. Tremendous depth of knowledge makes it easy to staff new projects or learn from the best. On the government side, the culture was informal. Much more rigid on industry side. Strong emphasis on deliverable timeliness and quality.

Cons

It is a pyramid marketing organization - promotion primarily rewards selling addition services or adding new clients. Technical skills only go so far. On dedicated contracts, it's easy to transfer allegiance to the client, rather than Booz, and opportunities for new work and advancement

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

    Pros

    Company name is well-respected by clients & competitors; Clients are some of the top Client projects are interesting & oriented to their vital missions; Decent internal training opportunities; Easy way to get a US government security clearance (first time or upgrade)

    Cons

    High staff turnover at lower levels; Plenty of internal bureaucracy; Lots of hoops to jump through to get promoted; Your career manager will drive whether you have a good/bad experience at firm; Getting stuck on client site for an extended period can be tedious

    Advice to Management

    Shelling out repeated $2 per share stock dividends to Carlyle & yourselves -- while skimping on employee compensation & eliminating the few remaining perks -- will not keep top consulting talent around long
