I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The most dedicated professionals in the government consulting industry. A real pleasure to work around top caliber people motivated by the mission. And ethics still mean something here.

Cons

Historically, Booz Allen always paid less but the opportunity to work under great leadership and pursue a career here made up for that. The new value proposition has the job (and career) ending with the contract for more and more people, making Booz Allen too much like its higher-paying competitors.

Advice to Management

Leadership seems to have trouble enunciating a vision and executing against it. Major firm-wide policies are rolled out and then quietly abandoned 6 months later. Senior leadership should focus more energy on firming up client connections.

    Pros

    Very good at teaching the consulting and business development business. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Too much management (in 2009) with bonus compensation on the backs of mid-career leadership. Incentivize those that produce, not those that approve timecards.
