    Pros

    The people are great. Everyone -- even the difficult types -- are eager to work and excel. There are some senior officers with questionable morality, but most people here are great people to work with.

    Cons

    1. Federal clients. Don't forget that you'll move at their pace, not yours.
    2. The nature of the job means that sooner or later you'll be strategizing ways to get more money from the client (i.e. federal government), regardless of whether or not you'll actually add value. BAH runs on government money, a large chunk from DoD, and thus is part of the bigger problem we have in this country with fiscal responsibility.
    3. Living off the American taxpayer. Much of the money that flies around in DC is at the expense of everyone else everywhere else in the US, BAH is a major player in this system, particularly the defense technology sector.
    4. You'll never get paid what you're worth. The three lowest ranks (Consultant, Sr. Consultant, Associate) seldom make what they're worth, while senior management (looking at you, officers) make insane amounts of money.

    Advice to Management

    I'm leaving this job for two reasons, despite being hand-picked and groomed for greater responsibility by senior management.

    1. You weren't paying me enough to do the job; especially when you factor in the amount of stress this job puts on a human being, the amount of time I sacrificed with my family, the amount of guilt this job inspired in me as an American.
    2. The job is not meaningful to anyone who doesn't lust for profits. At some point each of us gets a look at how the sausage is made, and then it becomes clear that the government is basically asking (literally sending out solicitations and announcements) to be ripped off. They don't need what we're selling, but they buy it anyways because Congress tells them to. This buys Congress fancy retirement plans at the same businesses that profit. But everyone else loses, and Booz Allen isn't doing enough to be a part of our nation's long-term fiscal stability.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are fantastic. Booz Allen matches your 401k contributions up to 6% of your salary. The company culture is great and they really try to reach out to employees on a regular basis. Telecom positions are hard to come by, but they do exist. If you have a good Career Manager you'll go far in this firm.

    Cons

    My biggest complaint is that there is no tracking on internal talent and the skillsets they have so the firm is constantly hiring for certain capabilities. This is most frustrating when you are looking for a new contract and you see open positions that you fit, but it's a capability hire which means you cannot apply for it. Which leads me to the way you work at Booz Allen; when your contract ends it is your responsibility to find another "job" within the firm. If you don't find a new contract within a certain period of time (I believe it's 2 or 3 months) you get a warning letter that if you don't have a job within 2 weeks you will be let go.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to track the talent you already have and stop hiring so many people when you have so many current employees on the bench. Tracking your talent will make it easier to place them on new contracts when their contract ends and they're looking for something new.

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the team and the work while at this position. Pay and benefits were good, and the only reason I moved on was because it looked like another contractor was going to win the contract.

    Cons

    Nothing during my time with the firm.

    Talent management could be better. Many employees have underutilized skills.
