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

Pros

Great medical, dental, vision and educational benefits. Great network of intellectual capital. Great for working mothers.

Cons

Contract work is getting harder to keep employees. Not as much room for raises and promotions aymore. Pay is lower than a lot of other consulting firms and isn't based on skills or qualifications most the time.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to how the experienced professionals are promoted compared to those that start as an intern. Often those who come in at a mid level are promoted much slower than those who come in from college which causes animosity in the work place.

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Talented people, some interesting and amazing projects, great opportunities to learn

    Cons

    The firm is more concern for short-term profit, and not long-term firm stability and institutional knowledge. Talented experienced staff, who are the true leaders of the firm are being pushed out as soon as the hit a low billability period regardless of long-term contribution or relevance for future works. Right now, if you are just a monkey with a wrench that is billable, you are fine. All the Core Values that the firm used to have a live by are now empty words in a piece of paper.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to understand that Booz Allen WAS a great firm, not because it “delivered results that endure”, (one of the marketing phrases the firm uses) but because it was not only very selective of the people it hired, but they protected them and ensuring they had careers that ENDURED. In return, the firm’s excellent staff felt pride to be part of a great firm and did always the best. Management needs to be more concern with the staff and stop treating them like raw meat in an meat grinder.
