I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Salary and benefits are pretty good for the area. The 401(k) program used to provide a fantastic profit sharing, but that is slowly phasing out and they're instituting a matching contribution program. BAH has taken care of me, and I have a really proactive management team.

Cons

Hard to advance your career client site, but I believe they are trying to restructure so that there will be career paths for those providing technical services vs. constantly building new business. I think peoples' experience with the company varies depending on the quality of their management team.

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

    Pros

    ECAP, Benefits, Leave. Great company to learn consulting in the federal environment. You have to be very dedicated to learning you skill set. If you want to make it at Booz you need to become a subject matter expert and learning business development. Also the culture of Booz Allen can take time to learn.

    Cons

    If you are looking for work life balance, Booz Allen is not the place. You are expected to be dedicated to your projects, participating in organizations outside of Booz Allen to build name recognition (your name) and doing proposal work... I would give BAH 5 stars if there was better work life balance.

    Pros

    - Smart co-workers
    - Good internal support
    - Well-run company
    - Opportunities for on-the-job professional development

    Cons

    - Eroding culture - lack of investment in employee professional development is killing morale
    - Hard to collaborate with hoteling system
    - Limited social interaction with peers when you're on client site
    - Focus on federal clients can be frusturating and unrewarding for top performers
    - Senior Leadership focused on billable hours, versus other more progressive measures of productivity and contribution to firm (e.g. business development or practice development)

    Advice to Management

    Beware of brand dilution: re-invest in hiring and retaining top talent; look for opportunities beyond the federal space
