Pros

- wonderful people - extremely committed and highly competent
- interesting work - cutting-edge projects for demanding clients
- supportive team - 40hr/yr training budget, countless training opportunities

Cons

- going public - Booz Allen was and is an incredibly strong company going top-flight work for sophisticated clients. I do not personally understand why the leadership team decided to do an IPO. The company's rich culture is facing challenges related to the changed incentives that come with throwing shareholders into the mix of stakeholders.

    Pros

    Good people, real assessment process. Reasonable advancement opportunity. Good ECAP - retirement bonus each year. Good solid benefits.Pay seems lower than other beltway bandits but the job is a little more stable.

    Cons

    Too much overhead, strange short sighted decision-making from management team, need for billable work - if you lose this, you lose your job. Carlyle Group is bent on running this storied brand into the ground so they can cash out. Talk a good game about work/life balance but ask for a lot of unpaid overtime from junior staff and look the other way on time charging policy violations.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the fat, reduce the number of VPs and Officers drastically, get out of the staff augmentation business, and buy out the Carlye group.Come up with a real plan to deal with Government cuts by diversifying into the private sector.
