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

    Pros

    Very high standards, strong collaborative culture, great people. Consulting model allows some of the smartest individuals in a field to collaborate on client projects, regardless of location or internal organizational alignment. Well respected by clients and competitors. New career tracks appear to be a positive. Has remained profitable and achieved impressive growth rate for years up till recently.

    Cons

    Recent contraction in federal contracting business has increased pricing pressure, making this company far too expensive to effectively grow. It is not clear to anyone (outside the owners) why internal costs are so high, so it is difficult to sell the services at the necessary price points. To counteract, management has decreed that most staff be 100% billable, which is shrinking the new project pipeline and compounding the problem. It is also not clear if management and the majority private equity stockholder can avoid major cuts. Management direction and style is highly variable depending on personality and background of individual managers. Staff and middle management have been departing the company in record numbers for many months.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify outside U.S. government contracting.
