    "Great if you can focus solely on work. Not so much if you need a life outside of it."

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

    Pros

    Very talented colleagues.
    Team-oriented work environment.
    Great pay.

    Cons

    Long hours are the norm, if you intend to move up.
    Little tolerance for outside-of-work commitments.

    Advice to Management

    I was a National Guardsman when I joined Booz Allen. In fact, my NG experience (job experience/security clearance) was a major factor in my being hired. One year into my employment with BAH, I became a company commander in the Guard, which required me to occasionally attend meetings during the week, and attend some additional military training.

    It was eventually suggested to me that I might want to choose which career to follow. This struck me as odd, since they knew I was a Guardsman when I was hired.

    I was already working 50 hours a week (40 with my clients, and another 10 on firm-related activities). I had school-aged kids, and wanted to be a part of their lives. And I had several hours of commander-related duties each week.

    At my rank and time of service, the pay was roughly equal between the two, so when management suggested I make a choice, it was easy.
