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

Pros

Booz Allen has a great network and resource system. They're able to draw on expertise from all facets of the company.

Cons

It is a very political employee management system. I've seen managers who have all of their staff complain about unprofessionalism and conflict but because this person was a friend of higher management, they received an bonus during their annual review. They preach a fair "360" review system, but it's not. Unless you know how to play the political game, you will not move ahead in this company. This is true even if your work is considered stellar.

Advice to Management

Start appreciating your client facing staff.

    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.
