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

Pros

Booz is a great place to work. Lots of flexibility as far as opportunities and work life balance. Great first job. They are always looking at ways to improve upon the way that they operate as an organization and put their employees first. They really understand that without its consultants they would not be able to achieve the amount of success it has and it shows. Tons of training opportunities although that time doesn't count towards your billable hours so you have to be careful not dig yourself into a hole you can't get out of.

Cons

It is easy to get "lost" but this really depends on your management team and your ability to network. The company is large and sometimes inexperience can hurt you. In some situations you may be without a project and though there are some available, you are not qualified enough for the position. It's not always easy to cross markets once you start out.

Advice to Management

Make sure those in charge of the daily operations of employees, Lead Associates and above, actually care about the wellness and livelihood of those that report to them.

    Pros

    BAH encourages their employees to learn and to work with others to complete projects. One of the big pushes is networking. We have meetings, lunches, discussions and presentations available on a regular basis to help network, meet other employees, and/or learn more on a topic or a BAH offering.

    Cons

    Working on proposals for new work or to continue current work can be time heavy and exhausting. I've worked multiple weeks of 12-14+ hour days on this type of work.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge a broader spectrum of employees for projects. It seems that many people do the work for the success, but the same few get noticed all the time.
