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

Pros

They still have a family oriented view of their employees. I have a lot of respect for their CEO, who still shows in interest in his employees.

Cons

Career advancement is difficult, but this is common in the consulting industry now.

Advice to Management

Provide clarity in career guidance, as this is somewhat lacking at this time.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time

    Pros

    Unless client site presence is required by the project, Booz Allen is flexible about telecommuting.
    Many smart and motivated people.
    Several communicative and engaging people at senior management levels (Partner and above).
    Many interesting projects.

    Cons

    On the other hand, the leadership and communication skills of many lower-to-mid-management (Lead Associate through Principle) are often quite poor.
    An extremely hierarchical organization.
    There is an unwritten expectation of putting in many hours.
    Very high employee turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Management desperately needs to find a way to stabilize staffing levels. It is extremely difficult to do something new (i.e. outside one's area of expertise) at the firm, and there needs to be more movement within Booz Allen.
