I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great benefits, competitive pay, not as strict in their career models as other consulting companies, great projects

Cons

I wasn't here before the firm went public and also solely became a Federal consulting company so I can't say how much greater it was, but coworkers are constantly telling me how it was better back in its heyday.

Advice to Management

My biggest complaint would be that they seem to keep hiring when availability of current projects is quite small--in essence stop hiring so much on overhead and take care of existing employees. I know many people who are trying to get out.

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

    Pros

    Name recognition; good salary; flex hours, depending on client; movement between contracts

    Cons

    Contract termination = the business; lots of administrative emails and tasks

    Advice to Management

    Despite what BAH says, it does not pay as much as some of the comparable competition

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

    Pros

    Your co-workers and managers are very smart and dedicated
    Clients and work are interesting and meaningful
    Many opportunities for "connecting" with co-workers outside of client engagements
    Mentoring at all levels is encouraged and practiced

    Cons

    If you want to advance, expect long hours (typical of any company in management consulting). However, if you are happy at your level, work life balance is respected by managers (no "up or out" mentality).
    Everyone is expected to be billable, even as you advance in management responsibility. At some point this is more distracting than helpful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
