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

Pros

Good reputation, solid company that has a lot of resources available to staff.

Cons

This is not a company that will hold your hand - they make resources available but its up to staff to understand, leverage and execute those resources. Personally, I see this as a pro, but others who are not self driven may not.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time

    Pros

    - Well positioned within specific sectors
    - Some influential members of senior management
    - Attempting to evolve into providers of goods and tangible products
    - Excellent corporate values and philosophies
    - Good "buttoned-down" (professional) image - great if you like wearing a suit!

    Cons

    - Experience in certain sectors, but no tangible capability (facilities, equipment, or materiel)
    - Consultants not doers (some, not all, employees have previous hands-on experience)
    - "Comeback Kids" is code for furloughs during low periods of billable work - bring you back when and if possible
    - Look at the current financials and compare them with the competition
    - The "glory days" have passed since the split with Booz & Company - now in survival mode

    Advice to Management

    Only so much reorganizing you can do. Seek and provide additional opportunities for employees to provide new business development vectors. Senior management appears effective. Middle management (Lead Associates, Senior Associates, and Principals) effectiveness is suspect.


  2. "Senior Consultant"

    Pros

    Friendly environment with a good amount of social activities to keep everyone connected since they are usually on client site. Management was flexible about taking courses as part of your education budget.

    Cons

    Management wasn't always transparent about their intentions, and at times, would not maintain commitments related to promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Management should put more care into making sure employees are well situated on client site and ensure mentoring is available to everyone so they have an equal chance at promotion.
