I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time

Pros

Really wonderful coworkers, exceptional middle-managers, solid development opportunities combine for a great company to work for to gain experience and be exposed to multiple markets in the DC-metro area.

Cons

Private equity buy out has significantly impacted culture. Senior leadership is disengaged and totally out of touch with the reality of the employee experience on the ground. Government consulting is not a growth market.

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

    Pros

    Fantastic colleagues, some truly are the best of the best. Most people really are trying to make the best of bad situations.
    Salary is competitive if you make a business case for it.
    Exposure to consulting techniques and skills.
    At it's heart, there are good intentions.

    Cons

    This company has lost its identity; One minute it's a premier consulting firm, the next it's a government staffing company.
    The company re-orgs every year as an excuse to seem "innovative" when really just smoke and mirrors to distract everyone from the fact that this company has no idea what it's doing.
    Top leadership has no clue what is going on with the people actually doing the work and those doing the work have no visibility to overall direction and strategy.
    Infrastructure is fragile and antiquated; internal staff seem overwhelmed and don't seem to have access to the resources they need to support the business.
    Managers are just yes men. They have few people management skills and just push work down to their employees with no direction, setting staff up for failure.
    Work life balance is nonexistent unless work is your life.
    Assessments and promotions are popularity contests. Functional expertise is less valued than handshaking and baby kissing.
    Overall, employees get lost in the shuffle or organization changes, budget cuts, poor leadership and overall lack of direction.

    Advice to Management

    Cut out the bureaucracy, decide what this company wants to be when it grows up and empower your employees to be successful professionals. The road ahead is a rocky one and budget cuts are only going to get you so far.
