I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Exceptional people, we hire great people who often are under utilized given the nature of government consulting. Good work life balance if you land on a project that allows for flexibility

Cons

No career track and promotions tend to be political and not always based on merit (those for Sr. Associates and below); little transparency on firm's direction prior to big changes being implemented.

Advice to Management

Be honest with your people, we all appreciate real "straight talk" rather than sugar coated coprporate-speak on the going-on that affect all staff

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

    Pros

    A great place for self-motivated and ambitious people. Lots of different fields of expertise and a variety of opportunities. Great benefits and excellent utilization of technology to make your job easier. I loved their hoteling office system, remote access computing, and internal facebook.

    Cons

    Relatively high turnover. It can take a long time to get a promotion, and moving to a new assignment can sometimes take even longer.

    Pros

    There are a great deal of professional development opportunities. It's a great work environment for entry-level professionals looking to learn a lot in term of admin, process, and project management.

    Cons

    Working within government bureaucracy can be tiresome, ones actual ability to move between "markets" is easier said than done, you're always wondering where your next project is going to come from, and lastly while the company tries very hard to fix this, it's easy to feel disconnected given their dispersed working environment.
