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

Pros

They truly value work-life balance, and the well-being of their employees! I so much as sneezed, and they would send me home and ask that I rest to make sure I didn't get sick! They also really respect and value your time as a person, and will rarely ask you to work weekends or after hours except potentially during client deliverable periods or quick turnaround pursuits/proposal efforts.

Cons

There weren't many opportunities for cross-functional or cross-team collaboration. If you are interested in getting exposure to a variety of clients and project types, Booz may not be the best place. People are typically assigned to a single project or account team (e.g. the CMS market) and you rarely get to join projects outside of your team. It's great if you want to develop SME in a particular area (e.g. federal health policy, regulatory affairs), but not if you want a diverse set of experiences in terms of client interactions and engagements.

Advice to Management

Management is great! The only advice I would give is to maintain regular touchpoints with your staff and provide more assistance in finding them career opportunities and staffing.

    Pros

    - Professional colleagues that desire to excel
    - Good benefits, although that is changing rapidly
    - Employees are generally considered assets (consulting model)
    - Flexible assignments; transferring to other company locations is not discouraged

    Cons

    - Government work
    - Limited raise structure, best way to get a large raise is to leave and come back
    - Post-split with Booz & Co, there is a longer and longer path to Bonus level (Senior Associate and higher)
    - After Carlyse, it's a slow bleed to mediocrity.
