    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    ability to work top flight projects

    Cons

    lost benefits, from top in industry to bottom 1/3rd.
    project teams are cliquish, the ability to break into good projects is nil
    in stead of rewarding top performers, meaning those who over a longer period of at least a year deliver customer delight, you will continually see the money going to marginal performers in trivial sums or awards.

    Advice to Management

    Recast the management incentives. Kill the trivial pursuit version of rewarding people. Emphasize performance longer than 4 quarters, with SIZABLE and visible rewards so everyone can again be proud of a company that knows that performance and client is key

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

    Pros

    The pay is reasonable, but you must have negotiation skills..

    Cons

    The worst class based system I've ever worked for. Senior Associates and above are in charge and all other are just worker bees. Very cut-throat company they will use you for their advantages and discard you when you do not serve their purpose.

    Advice to Management

    You must protect your front-line troops. Being selfish and only focused on singular financial achievement will only be destructive to the unit as a whole. I could say more but it will fall on deaf ears as always, just remember this quote.
    "The path of the righteous is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men."
