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

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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    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.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I work from home nearly every day and have total autonomy. Pay is OK, not great. Strong commitment to core values.

    Cons

    Communication from the top-down is not always made a priority (within admin teams). If you end up on a good team, it's a fantastic company to work for, but if you don't it can be miserable. Cliques and favoritism is present within my team--may not be the case across the firm.
