Great experience but unfulfilling for long term

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

Pros

There are a great deal of professional development opportunities. It's a great work environment for entry-level professionals looking to learn a lot in term of admin, process, and project management.

Cons

Working within government bureaucracy can be tiresome, ones actual ability to move between "markets" is easier said than done, you're always wondering where your next project is going to come from, and lastly while the company tries very hard to fix this, it's easy to feel disconnected given their dispersed working environment.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Exceptional people, we hire great people who often are under utilized given the nature of government consulting. Good work life balance if you land on a project that allows for flexibility

    Cons

    No career track and promotions tend to be political and not always based on merit (those for Sr. Associates and below); little transparency on firm's direction prior to big changes being implemented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your people, we all appreciate real "straight talk" rather than sugar coated coprporate-speak on the going-on that affect all staff

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great job security, interesting work, fun people to work with, events (gala, movies), great benefits.

    Cons

    due to the recession there has been a cut on raises (~1-2% for consultants who put in 50 hrs a week) and promotions. obviously this is something that can not be escaped. overall, bah has been doing its best to keep its employers happy. not a lot of room for growth but that all depends on the contract you support. you could be doing the same work as your boss and your boss's boss but without the management portion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    better transparency and less meetings. corporations have an obsession with meetings. typical week consists of weekly status meetings with clients (however many you support), team meetings, sub-team meetings, and leadership meetings.
