I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

It can be cushy and comfortable - the hours are good, and the work tends to be slow and steady. The atmosphere is generally friendly and collaborative, and my colleagues seemed like nice people.

Cons

A pretty uninspired place where you can fall into comfortable mediocrity. At the junior level it wasn't apparent that there were mechanisms to recognize top performers over others. It was possible to coast by there doing little work and not learning much.

Advice to Management

Create more opportunities for mentorship, rapid learning and advancement for top-performing junior employees.
