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

Pros

Culture is young to experience, great working atmosphere, great benefits and alot of opportunity to gain new skills, always feel you can voice where you want to go and have the career manager back you on it. Great mentors as long as they stay with the company.

Cons

Tough to obtain the pay you should earn given the market and looking for experienced candidates with low salaries. With tighter scrutiny on contracts and the competitive field, Booz Allen is back at the drawing board in learning how to win competitive work. After Booz went public the feel of employee's first has gone and it's now bottom line first. More emphasis on the employee's is going to be needed in order to stay where they need to be.

Advice to Management

Start having higher level management be realistic about what we go after and arm middle management with the tools to discuss changes going on within the company. We're losing talent.

    Pros

    working with talented people and doing interesting work. if you find the right mentor you can do very well

    Cons

    corporate policy and processes are constantly changing.

    Advice to Management

    keep connected to the day to day issues of your middle managers. too much time is spent on corporate reporting and "managing the business" and all of this time is not billable to the client. we can't bill internally either so we don't report it and just "suck it up"

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, good retirement plan (401k/profit sharing), and well-defined career development path

    Cons

    Inconsistent bonus/promotion process; can depend on what team you are on. Oftentimes you will be on a team where you have to work extremely hard to get promoted, while others seem to get promotion just based on length of employment.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the employees; don't worry so much about the bottom line
