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

Pros

Good benefits...health, profit sharing. Flexibility in schedules, work locations. IT well maintained. Growth if you have strong sponsorship from immediate team.

Cons

No growth unless sponsored directly regardless of network or work quality. Plug in mentality in staffing...just fill the space. Smart people doing menial work just to keep teams billable. Favoritism, nepotism, poorly qualified career managers. The consulting speak has moved inward more than ever before.

Advice to Management

Wake up and realize most career managers are ineffective leading to poor professional growth outlook for most staff. With market changes, staff are terrified they will lose their jobs tomorrow and career managers care only for those they are grooming. Minimal opportunities to more than just bill hours....Minimal concern from above. But everyone says the right thing....repeat the mantra and all will be good.

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

    Pros

    Smart, collaborative, motivated colleagues making working here fun and challenging. The ability to work on a variety of projects with various clients keeps the work interesting.

    Cons

    Difficult work life balance as there is always more work to do than time to do it. A lot of layoffs in the past few years have left corporate staff very lean, yet the expectation of service level is the same. Change in direction by leadership is constant with result that just when employees get comfortable with a certain structure, it gets changed.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk - employee engagement is said to be valued, but no time to actually do it because of constant pressure to be billable. Managers don't have time to spend with their staff. Layoffs have made staff think more along the lines of how long will I have my job, instead of how far can I go in the firm.
