    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

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time

    Pros

    1) You get the opportunity to work with extremely intelligent and collaborative colleagues
    2) Both a pro and a con--your career is what you make it to be. Whether you want to become a subject matter expert or become an industry leader, the choice is yours to make and both are equally attainable.
    3) The company offers a variety of challenging and rewarding work in technology, strategy, engineering, etc--a wide selection of environments and assignments to choose from.
    4) Work-life balance lives on!

    Cons

    1) Both a pro and a con--your career is what you make it to be. You need to be proactive and have a good career manager to help you achieve your goals.
    2) Training is harder to obtain as compared to similar companies.

    Advice to Management

    Consider reinvesting in your people by making training and courses more accessible or even mandatory. It will help boost higher quality of work and your clients will be sure to notice the consistency--if we are here to provide knowledge and expertise to our clients, wouldn't it make sense to invest in increasing and retaining the knowledge-base?
