I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

I've been with Booz for 7 years and the experiences I've had are amazing. Being a highly technical engineer, it's a place to be the engineer that has soft skills....a rare talent to have. The people are the best and brightest of all fields. You work amongst the cream of the crop and I'd you have initiative, don't expect to have things handed to you, you have the opportunity to learn . They have tons of social outlets and clubs, so I've also personally made some lifelong friends..

Cons

The form us ahead of comparable companies and changing the business model and beginning a company that makes things. Mgt has no idea how to manage that kind of revenue or business...it's basically a big initiating cluster. We can't be innovative when the innovation is being run by a bunch of old men who have never worked outside Booz Allen. We are bleeding staff because of this. If a great new challenge appeared I'd probably jump. I'm already actively looking, but at 7 great years - its about time.

Advice to Management

Get more junior innovative principals and vp level managers. You're a self licking ice cream cone right now. We need fresh leadership and not a reorg.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great company with excellent core values. A true culture of collaboration between employees and teams.

    Cons

    I feel like salary (not total compensation) is somewhat behind the competition.

    Advice to Management

    As best as possible, try to maintain the Booz Allen value proposition and do not fall into low price wars for contracts.
