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

    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.

    Pros

    Best on boarding ever - creates immediate personal investment in company. Felt like a valuable asset and appreciated management involvement in the employees' well-being. Great benefits and educational opportunities. Even the upper management took the time to make new team members feel welcome and as if their contributions mattered. People actually listened and took suggestions into consideration - or at least were polite enough to pretend, which goes a long way! Smart, creative and personally invested coworkers make for a wonderful work atmosphere. Client facing contract work is interesting and rewarding, with the opportunity to make real and noticeable contributions to customer productivity.

    Cons

    Only con was the teaming with other companies - created a bit of pay inequity for people doing the same jobs side by side, and fragmenting within teams. Not Booz Allen's fault, just a byproduct of teaming contracts.

    Advice to Management

    The 360 evaluation process is horrendously complicated and time consuming. A simple "how to" guide would've made it less intimidating the first go through. I do appreciate that it's online, though.
