No real benefit to working there
Associate (Current Employee) –  Belcamp, MDMay 20, 2016
Poor communication, poorly managed, benefits have been drastically cut over the past few years, unethical leadership, managed as if its a consulting company and a vast majority of the work is engineering services.

better off some where else.

Sr. Consultant (Current Employee) –  Charleston, SCMay 19, 2016
Booz Allen has it's perks as far as the ability to work from home (depending on your client and manager's preference) and I have met some great people. The hardest part of the job lately has to do with the company finding work in order to keep folks employed. So far I've been lucky and bounced around on different projects to stay employed. This is part of working for a company that is part of the DoD and something you go through but it hasn't been easy!
Pros
Working from home
Cons
Healthcare, public company that was once private

Fun place to work
Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) SME (Current Employee) –  Des Moines, IAMay 16, 2016
Being at a client site is a great experience, because it gives me the opportunity to interact directly with the client while building a relationship. It's a team atmosphere where I'm able to benefit via cross-functional learning in order to understand how other departments tie into the overall strategy. The most difficult part is interpreting customer expectations, because they are not always clear on their direction. Despite the difficulty, it's good to be challenged and in the end see the customer satisfied.
Pros
The ability to work independently and implement ideas is huge.
Cons
In some ways being remote has somewhat of a glass ceiling affect--no upward mobility.

6 solid years
Associate, Management Consulting Practice (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCMay 16, 2016
Booz Allen took good care of me and provided engaging work at fair wages. That said, the shine is starting to wear off and it no longer feels like it has an esprit de corps among front line employees. Investments made at the corporate level do not trickle down to the work force. Benefits have been cut from post-9-11 highs, contributing to the workforce attrition that challenges the entire federal consulting sector. The firm has tremendous potential, but may need to reconcile itself with two truths: either it must focus on growth (and continue to bid on work that the firm historically shunned) or it must focus on becoming the elite firm that it could be if it focused on core competencies rather than trying to be a jack of all trades, master of none for every three-letter federal organization under the sun.

Generous company
Senior PeopleSoft ELM (Former Employee) –  McLean, VAMay 16, 2016
Booz Allen and Hamilton is primarly oriented towards project management consulting work...not programming.

It has generous benefits and ample opportunity for training, provided you can find an appropriate project to expand/hone your skillset.
Pros
Very independent workplace environment
Cons
Must be able to obtain a security clearance

Excellent Company
Technical Program Manager (Current Employee) –  MarylandMay 13, 2016
Booz Allen is definitely a relatively intense place to work, but has outstanding management, culture, and resources. Opportunities to learn and grow abound, and colleagues are very collaborative. Employees have an opportunity to solve challenging problems. The experience, though, can vary by team and role -- for a large company, it is quite distributed; each team has a lot of autonomy.
Pros
Opportunities, collaborative environment
Cons
Contracts do not always offer long-term stability

Great reputation
Associate - (CEMA Training Manager) (Current Employee) –  Fort Stewart, GAMay 11, 2016
Booz Allen Hamilton has a great reputation for compensating its employees and treating them well. They are, primarily, a DoD contractor but also have a civil operation. They focus on ethical operations and provide everyone with the ability to do the right think in any situation. BAH is an exceptional employer that I enjoy working for and look forward to a long history with.

Not a great place to work
Manager (Former Employee) –  VirginiaMay 4, 2016
Booze Allen Hamilton does not treat its sub contractors well. They place their sub contractors in separate buildings completely away from rest of the company. Certain positions that certain people have should not be away from their own team. The telecommute policy is not a policy at all. People just make up policy as they see fit. Nothing is documented. No policy was passed on to its staff members. It is highly unorganized. We have to be available to our clients for 8.5 hours however, we can not dock the whole 8.5 hours if we don't have 8.5 hours worth of work to do. So shouldn't we get paid for our time just to be available? My co worker is a technical writer and is assigned to write meeting minutes. What a wasted of a person's skills.The company as a whole really needs to do better in setting their policies. Look at who has what position and what kind of work is assigned therefore what location the person should be not by what kind of contract or what budget they have with Booz Allen. I would not recommend anyone to do a sub contractor work or to be a Booze Allen staff.
Pros
no pros
Cons
sub contractors don't get treated well. Very separated from rest of the eam, no team enviroment.

Not a good company
Associate (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAMay 3, 2016
I worked for Booz for a short time and left because of no billable work. I felt everyone was looking for projects to work. Booz is doing business in an opposite way. Hiring people but no work. Be cautious when you get an offer from Booz.
Pros
People are nice!
Cons
No enough projects at Booz. Not stable. People in and out frequently. Not a solid company.

Best place I've ever worked.
Senior Consultant (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCApril 24, 2016
Great people, great pay and benefits. Outstanding programs and career development/mentoring for all employees.
Nice flexibility and work/life balance. Great for working parents. I am a mom of three children under the age of 5 and appreciate all of the flexibility they give me. I love that many of the leaders are women too--they place a lot of emphasis on hiring and promoting a diverse population. Couldn't be happier to be working here.
Pros
5K that you can apply to continued education, great mentoring program, training program, work/life balance, flexibility, virtual work
