    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Employees are intelligent and hard working people. Booz hires some of the best people in most industries and expects performance out of everyone. Training programs are some of the best I have seen. Booz Allen expects each employee to continuously improve and is willing to help pay for very expensive certifications (for a commitment of course)

    Cons

    In 2008, Booz Allen separated from the private sector and has only recently entered back into the private market. While the Booz Allen employees are great, most of your work will be with Federal government employees who can often be difficult to motivate. Also, surprisingly low compensation compared to the hype around the firm.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time (more than an 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.
