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

Pros

The emphasis on collaboration along with supporting infrastructure. Folks at all levels are polite and courteous. Culture supports professional dignity.

Cons

Procedures are bizarre, but have a way of working out to the good. For examples: 1)The hoteling scheme is disconcerting, but then allows you to seek out the most suitable available office situation. 2) The speed-dating style of interviewing is bizarre, but then leads to a job, so who cares? 3) Workers must search internally for their assignments. But this is hit or miss depending on whether the current contracts have the right openings. 4) The onboarding process could strike one as overdoing it.

Advice to Management

1) Establish Health Savings Accounts as a benefit. 2) Seek out and provide longer engagements, especially involving teams working at BAH facilities.

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

    Pros

    Booz Allen is a very strong company with strong year over year growth. There are position openings all over the world, and they dabble in a little bit of everything. If you get a good manager, and enjoy your position, your life will be great. Work weeks aren't super long, and your benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Internal applications are a nightmare, recruiters only care about bringing in new employees (they get a bonus) rather than staffing the employees already in the system. Since going public, the company's culture has changed sharply and the investors seem to be wanting to fix something that's not broken.

    Advice to Management

    Worry more about employee moral than nickel/diming the overhead.
