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 3 years)

    Pros

    Company culture is values centered, but can vary from client to client. Most of the contracts I see now are on for on-site delivery, so office environments vary. When the government shut down in October, I don't think any employees were laid off - they definitely took care of us then.

    Cons

    40 hours per week is the minimum for most contracts - if you're looking to get ahead or promoted, 50 - 60 hours per week is what it takes. Compensation for technically skilled employees starts a little on the low side but can pick up and surpass non-consulting technical jobs.

    Advice to Management

    With all the changes going on right now, you should definitely communicate clearly, early and often. Also, use internal company web sites to provide consistent information. I've heard a lot of conflicting reports on promotions for this upcoming summer.
