I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great company brand especially in DC
Lots of big company perks (holiday party, big community, smart/talented colleagues)

Cons

Leadership talked about mentorship and junior staff engagement, but actions didn't always match the rhetoric
Career goals/interests weren't always considered when staffing

Advice to Management

Dedicate more time to staff/team development.
Ensure team members are engaged and finding additional ways to develop and demonstrate their skills.

    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 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!
