The most enjoyable part of the job was working with great people from multiple disciplines to bring our best to address the challenges of our clients. The company does well when it comes to taking care of their people between contracts.

management consultant (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCJune 26, 2016
Booz Allen has a lot of great resources for young and seasoned professionals. Take advantage of all the great training and networking opportunities, when possible. Client work is about developing a good client relationship and Booz Allen does a great job at developing their assets on people skills. Overall, I've enjoyed my tenure but would like to venture out to something new.
Pros
Networking, Skill Development
Cons
Compensation, Benefits

Great place to work for the team player who needs autonomy in a goal-oriented workplace. Employees tend to be smart, capable, and very good at what they do.

Enjoyable place to work, with a few disturbing aspects
Signals Analyst (Former Employee) –  Annapolis Junction, MDJune 19, 2016
Booz Allen is a great place to work, and they have a great track record for keeping people after contracts end. However, if you are not the type of person who is comfortable wearing a shirt and tie, you might feel uncomfortable with their unspoken dress code. Decent benefits, however, the benefits package was completely overhauled when the company went public. If you are a highly technical person, or considered a SME in your field, you likely would be in good hands working for Booz Allen.
Pros
Nearly all meetings include food and drinks
Cons
Lots of extracurricular work including mandatory training

Shaky job security with federal client facing projects
Cybersecurity Information Security Manager (Current Employee) –  MDJune 17, 2016
More of a job than a career.
Once hired, your qualifications are never used for advancement or opportunity.
When contracts dry up you are responsible for finding your own work as personnel are aligned to slots and not portfolios.

one of the best companies....
Cloud Developer (Current Employee) –  McLean, VAJune 15, 2016
one of the best companies I ever worked with. You can't survive if you don't have clearance. Not so great lower level management. I would give *** for job security.
Pros
work life balance, flexibility
Cons
job security, compensation

I appreciate that Upper Management is considerate in their dealings with subordinates. They encourage a competitive environment and emphasis on work-life balance is important.

Quirky corporate culture with no tangible benefits.
Staff Technologist (Current Employee) –  MarylandJune 14, 2016
Booz Allen Hamilton has many strong personalities in management, and lots of management. VPs abound. Read in to that what you want. I am not sure why anybody pays this company to do anything, then again the federal government is their primary customer. Consultants = pretend to know what you're talking about when you really don't. If you want to do some real engineering, look elsewhere. If you're interviewing for a position, ask who you're replacing and how many people they've lost. That will tell you all you need to know.
Pros
They've never forgot to pay me
Cons
Everything else

Booz Allen Hamilton is a great place to work. What I love most about Booz Allen Hamilton is when you have particular skill set and prove to the management team your capabilities they allow you to move anywhere within the firm.

Site Lead / Training Manager / Integrator (Current Employee) –  UtahJune 8, 2016
Great organization to work for, but due to contracts ending and one is not willing to relocate a new job must be sought after.

Good company for junior to mid techies, and those going into management
Enterprise Architect (Current Employee) –  MassachusettsMay 30, 2016
BAH is better than most consulting firms in allowing you "on the bench" for longer than most companies, and that there are many resources for you to find your own next contract. Bad news is there doesn't seem much place for senior techies if you don't want to go into management.
Pros
Lots of jobs in the DC metro area, Longer "on the bench" time allowed
Cons
Limited jobs outside the DC metro area, Limited careers for senior techies
