I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Quality people
Challenging and meaningful work
High-integrity culture
Focus on people development through training and tuition reimbursement
Work-life balance
Executive leadership is always adjusting to the landscape and ensuring the health of the business. I believe that we have real adults in leadership in the Firm.
The bi-annual people survey is actually used to make changes that improve the work conditions for employees.

Cons

I personally do not like the fact that as one becomes more senior they are required to market. It is just not my preference.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More flexibility to take a technical or project management track only without an emphasis on business development.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    great benefits (in an effor to make up for lower compensation?)
    flexible schedule depending on project
    great work-life balance (for associates and below)
    great place to start a consulting career

    Cons

    lack of visibility into mid-level management's decisions & reasoning
    easy to feel isolated or lost in the crowd if not actively networking
    shift from private to publicly traded company has led to several cost-cutting initiatives (reduced # of paid time-off)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    provide more incentive to lower the churn rate - all the best and brightest appear to be exiting the firm. find out what is causing the departures from the firm, unless the strategy is to rely on low-cost junior staff without developing and retaining its own talent.
