I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Booz Allen does have lots of contracts that you can transfer too

Cons

The corporate structure is built around working hard with little incentive for the said effort. If you have a bad Career Manager, your career with Booz Allen is stunted

Advice to Management

Look into smaller companies. They may not have as many contracts, but they will appreciate you for the work you do and do the best they can to keep you with them. Also, they have lower overhead and can pay far more that a company like Booz Allen.

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

    Pros

    The firm offers great training and educational opportunities.

    Cons

    The challenges are the firm expects its employees to bill its clients 40 plus hours a week, yet in order to succeed within the firm employees are expected to work an additional 20 hours a week for the firm which can often be challenging if you have a demanding client schedule. In order to succeed you must be connected to your groups inner circle.
