    "Bottom-Line Centered. Employees (consultants) are merely numbers (pawns)."

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

    Pros

    Decent benefits and compensation (although the "firm" has recently reduced the education benefit by half to $2,500 (isn't that tax deductible?))
    Great people to work with (for the most part and on the lower levels, anyway)

    Cons

    Bottom-line ($$$) centered (publicly traded company (NYSE: BAH)).
    Training is only available if you're willing to eat the additional hours.
    You're expected to 'make up' hours for everything (no overtime).
    Extremely top-heavy, and managers only seem to look out for themselves and their cliques.
    Incompetent first-line management.
    Has lost its competitive edge and prestige in the consulting business.
    It's all about 'butts-in-seats', and if you can't find billable work immediately, you'll be shown the door.
    Little, if any, opportunity to grow into other aspects of the business, especially on the government side.
    You are required to interface with incompetent government bureaucrats.
    Work/life balance virtually non-existent.
    Corporate culture is vaguely defined with no specific guidance.

    Advice to Management

    Dispose of the current CEO, Ralph Schrader, and make management more competitive and fair.
    Roll back to a privately held firm before you lose complete stature in the consulting industry.
    If you're looking to remain competitive in the government contracting business, cut your overhead by reducing top-level management who eat up admin hours having perpetual, useless meetings.
    Do more to invest into, and recognize your employees.

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

    Pros

    Professional Environment good in house training opportunities.

    Cons

    You must think like the rest of the cube. Also if you need work its really on you and your networking within your company. That's not so bad unless you are at airport square where dreams go to die.

    Also it is extremely hard to get involved with company business, I tried repeatedly to volunteer for proposal work and I was never given the opportunity.

    Advice to Management
