I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great values, benefits, training, and work-life balance - particularly if you firmly make it a priority. Many jobs require no travel. Some bright and wonderful people.

Cons

Less competitive salary for the industry, limited control over project assignments. Some dead weight on staff since there is not an "up or out" mentality.

Advice to Management

Create a separate business development team for proposal work.

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

    Pros

    There is an opportunity to telecommute and that has been helpful at times.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, like many companies. BAH has fallen victim to the change in the economy and as contracts are either not won or not renewed, many people are given lack-of-work letters and shown the door.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I worked for really great Vice Presidents within Booz Allen. They cared deeply about their people. Took good care of them. For the most part that culture permeated down to directors and managers. For that portion of my career I got promoted and felt like I had good growth potential until the later part of my time there.

    Cons

    There were teams who's management did not care very much. As with any company the experience was dependent upon the managers. It's primarily a government contracting/consulting firm. The market was changing when I was there from a model where consulting thought leadership was appreciated by government clients to a staff augmentation model. Two very different markets. I've slowly seen really good people leave and move on to other great endeavors.
