Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Company has a good name, they do a lot of interesting things, diverse projects

Cons

Company has a bad reputation, does not pay competitively and doesn't plan well - hires a lot of people then lays them off

Advice to Management

Although it's hard to plan future growth in today's economy and environment, possibly knowing more about your competition would serve you well. Don't pigeon-hole people and think more about the necessity for a decent work-life balance.

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

    Pros

    Standards are high at Booz Allen and it is a stable company to work for as long as you are billable.

    Cons

    Since becoming publicly traded, the company has been reducing benefits however they are still competitive with the market.

    Advice to Management

    Since benefits have been reduced, I suggest the rates being charged be reduced as well to make them more competitive.

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benifits, with various positions around the Washinton, DC metro area! Multiple home locations near work areas!

    Cons

    Management can sometimes be cumbersome, leaving employees hanging in the breeze even with advance notification of losing positions. Employees are burden with moving up/participate in development of contracting proposals or move out in favor of cheaper and younger labor force!

    Advice to Management

    Provide employees with opportunity to move to cyber related positions! This will maintain competive edge and even growth. Also gives a better timed alternative for those who may not want to upgrade or venture into new realm to remain in the company in a leadership! Now is the time Booz, now is the time!
