    "Like any large company, there are good and bad opportunities and managers. It's a crapshoot."

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Generally smart, capable, friendly people within the client delivery ranks. Good benefits. Good name to have on your resume. Ability to perform multiple jobs for multiple clients all within the same company.

    Cons

    Leadership focused almost exclusively on profit at the expense of everything else, which receives lip service, including company morale. Your experience largely dictated by the capabilities of your direct manager and their willingness and ability to go to bat for you. Many managers are more concerned with appeasing their senior management by keeping costs low, for example, than for getting you promoted. A true meritocracy it is not.

    Advice to Management

    Look for a way to remain competitive without driving away your best talent through poorly conceived and implemented cost cutting measures. Recreate a corporate culture that every employee is proud to be a part of. Honestly consider what the founders would want the organization to look like today, and in the longer term, not just what you and your peers find most personally rewarding today - in the short term.
