    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great flexibility for work location, project variety, hours worked, and extension of skills beyond core skills. Smart people that conform to similar professional approach (good and bad thing).

    Cons

    Group think!!...sometimes a group of smart people do something do inefficiently. Because people must conform in style (to succeed), there is very little innovation. In addition, high bureaucracy can make it difficult to be yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Value the backgrounds, perspectives, skills, and approaches your talented staff offers - and stop rewarding leaders who do not do this!

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

    Pros

    great benefits (in an effor to make up for lower compensation?)
    flexible schedule depending on project
    great work-life balance (for associates and below)
    great place to start a consulting career

    Cons

    lack of visibility into mid-level management's decisions & reasoning
    easy to feel isolated or lost in the crowd if not actively networking
    shift from private to publicly traded company has led to several cost-cutting initiatives (reduced # of paid time-off)

    Advice to Management

    provide more incentive to lower the churn rate - all the best and brightest appear to be exiting the firm. find out what is causing the departures from the firm, unless the strategy is to rely on low-cost junior staff without developing and retaining its own talent.
