I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Nice people, easy to network
Interesting projects
Flexible hours
Nice amenities (flavia coffee, tea, sugar, creamer, hot chocolate, plasticware, paper towels, etc.)
Competitive compensation and benefits

Cons

Cut back on 401K (6% matching instead of a 10% no matter what)
More focused on employees being billable (you'd have to make up the however many hours you spent in training)
Upper management is unorganized and do not know everything that is going on with their employees
Raises have been low recently (even 0% in some cases)
Takes a long time to switch projects

Advice to Management

Stop being so obsessed with billable hours and communicate more with your employees to see if they're satisfied with how things are going on their project.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good benefits within the industry, opportunity to innovate in your spare time, definitely a learning/mentoring environment, leadership and entrepreneurship encouraged. Finally simplifying the performance assessment process.

    Cons

    This company has changed its entire business model and lowered the standard for employees. Consulting, no more... Booz Allen is now truly a government contractor. Raises are non-existent, despite stellar performance appraisals, and the best-of-the-best are fleeing this sinking ship.

    Advice to Management

    Stop devaluing the company and your employees. Bigger is not necessarily better.

    Pros

    The company sets goals for personal development.

    Cons

    There is lots of competition between divisions within the company and between employees for work. There is also a lot of back scratching and black-listing within the firm.

    Advice to Management

    Get more involved with all levels of employment and don't listen to one point-of-view.
