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

Pros

Prestigious company within the federal government sphere; always receive an "oh nice!" when I mention where I work. Good benefits.

Cons

Lack of connectedness; spend all the time with the client, you almost feel more like the client's employee; projects are harder to come by nowadays and the company is less willing to let you sit on the beach for extended periods of time.

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

    Pros

    Great client work and opportunity to work on cool deliverables.

    Cons

    Extremely low salary which does not match level of effort you are expected to contribute. The performance review process is ridiculous, tedious, and subjective.

    Advice to Management

    Pay staff what they deserve and streamline performance review process.

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Loved the experience. Personally got to move through the ranks quickly as my main client truly required my expertise. Felt like I got very lucky getting matched to the right project and got to hand pick my team. An all-star team was created that I feel broke boundaries within the organization

    Cons

    As my success continued to grow, local mgmt wanted to capitalize on it which is risky. If not careful could have devalued my contributions to the overall task. Being on a client site made it somewhat difficult to feel attached & recognized by the local office as well. Definitely had to care & feed the relationship with the actual corporate office.

    Advice to Management

    When yr over yr when a person continues to bring in high dollar business and doubles the contract size, you need to ignore your compensation strategies and go above & beyond those that go above & beyond for you.
