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

Pros

- Low travel requirements for "consulting"
- Many local offices in the DC region, ongoing efforts to minimize commute time

Cons

- Firm struggles to identify, challenge, and promote top talent
- Difficult for staff to gain access to projects that align with their interest
- Firm has very few true "consulting" projects, mostly staff augmentation projects for government agencies
- Less than $5,000 of assistance annually to pursue an advanced degree such as an MBA in return for 2 years service is a bad deal

Advice to Management

Return to your consulting roots. Staff augmentation projects only train future government employees well, not business consultants nor future partners for your firm. Encourage more young staff to pursue professional degrees by funding such development.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I work with a great team. Love the flexibility with hoteling.

    Cons

    Hard to navigate around the company to get things done. Low balled on salary. If you take on another job that would normally pay more than your current salary, it doesn't matter. You will be paid at the rate you came in at so you are really under paid. Stress over finding next project.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your awesome leadership, drop some of your recruiters. Pay people for the level of work they perform, not a title status.
