Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Builds client-service orientation skills, sets high standards for deliverables

Cons

Highly structured and demanding conformist culture, low-payer, behaves like a "temp" service to fill in spots they need people to work, better for college hires who can tolerate it, terrible for a capable, self-disciplined professional

Advice to Management

If you care about the people you manage this is the wrong company for you.

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

    Pros

    - Impressive colleagues
    - Engaged leadership
    - Many opportunities
    - Positive and professional reputation with various clients
    - Easy career growth if you meet the right people and develop leadership skills.
    - Starting a new technology track for engineers/developers that makes it easier to move up without doing proposal work.

    Cons

    - You go only as far as your own ambition. Do not expect your hand to be held, even if you are a fresh grad.
    - Not a lot of advertisement for extraneous work. You must network and seek these yourself.
    - The generous 401k matching is dropping down to industry standard levels.
    - Tuition reimbursement could be a lot better for their rising stars.
    - Hoteling; no set offices since most of us are on client site 24/7.

    Advice to Management

    - Like other corporations there is a lot of overhead. Some folks get away with performing poorly whereas some rockstars don't get noticed.
    - Engage all team members once in a while. Don't rely on the same people who are only in it for themselves.
    - Reinstate the amazing 401k plan prior to going public.
