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

Pros

Training in how to write proposals, run a project, give presentations, and collaborate. Top-notch peers and exposure to major clients.

Cons

Long hours, stress, lots of paperwork, very stressed out bosses.

Advice to Management

My understanding is that after going public, BAH began cutting back on perqs and increasing pressure on employees to prove their worth. This is so obviously and ridiculously suicidal it's a wonder the board is allowing it. Employees accept lower than industry wages because of the benefits and the exposure to big clients. They have all the stress they can handle. Reducing one and cranking up the other will not allow BAH to retain or attract the sorts of employees that made it an excellent company.

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

    Pros

    Consulting environment allows employees to work multiple projects requiring them to use and develop multiple talneds and find best fit for skills and desires.

    Cons

    Since company has gone public, culture is becoming more of a traditional consulting cut throat environment with significantly less loyalty to the employees and partners that developed the company.

    Advice to Management

    Buy out the stock and go back to a partnership.
