I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The benefits and salary are very generous. The culture is extremely professional for the most part but at times can come off as being snobbish.

Cons

The way employees are rated is called an "Assessment" which is normally done annually. The problem with this process is that they use a "360" degree method of gathering information about the employee. The employee has to provide a self-assessment along with the names of customers and company mates as potential interviewees. Sometimes employees that don't get along will use your assessment to get back at you by providing less than flattering feedback. However, if the rater that is writing the assessment is good he or she should be able to gauge the type of person that they are reviewing based on all the feedback gathered.

Advice to Management

Learn to stick up for your team members from time to time and try not to be such corporate drones......it's really a turn off and all you guys do is distance yourself from your employees.

    Pros

    BAH is a fantastic company for those who are willing to put in the effort to make it work. The leadership is very dynamic, collaborative, and does the best they can to balance the needs of the employees with the shareholders. Very good compensation & benefits package, educational and other opportunities to build skill sets and grow professionally. A particularly good fit for any ex-military.

    Cons

    The company is pragmatic/utilitarian about the bottom line almost to a fault, which is to say if you're not on a funded contract it's your responsibility to be actively seeking out another position as soon as possible even if means relocating. This is not an enterprise where if you take care of them, they'll take care of you in bad times. You either produce or find another job. Hours can be long and client-site engagements can be tedious at best.

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

    Pros

    The compensation is on par with competitors. The long hours is a legitimate excuse to escape problems at home. The social networking via Yammer is the best way to find out what's going on inside the company.

    Cons

    Poor raises, poor internal communications (aside from Yammer), hotelling sucks, the milestones and client deliverables make it tough to take any time off. There's nothing positive to say about the culture, but you need a thick skin to survive.

    Advice to Management

    Booz Allen needs to do a better job of recognizing employees who are doing well and stay engaged with everyone and keep them working together as a team.
