Senior Buyer (Former Employee) – Herndon, VA – February 21, 2016
You can do important work here with exceptional collegues in a firm dedicated to the spirt of service. Booz Allen is powered by brilliant people united in a relentless pursuit to deliver new value by solving the world’s toughest problems.
Would spend time in office or secure room developing. My section lead taught me a lot. Learned about FPGA's, digital design, coding, and general engineering practice. All co-workers were friendly, approachable, and knowledgeable.
Lead Associate (Current Employee) – McLean, VA – February 9, 2016
There is little strategic planning, no resources and people are set up to fail. Women are mistreated if they are outspoken or do things right. The men are permitted to not follow policies and succeed while the women must follow the rules. Men leave the women out and hoard the information and budgets among themselves.
Some unique benefits and perks but driven by a completely clueless management style.
Event Support Technician (Current Employee) – Ford Island, HI – February 8, 2016
The company has great benefits though their annoying combined 10 hours of sick and personal time together always leaves a sour taste in my mouth.
The main grump is that you can work crazy hours and see very little of it back or sometimes none due to the month to month schedule but if you dip under a few hours they're on you like crazy about that.
Management has no clue about why people leave and often when asked "What are you doing to retain people?" you get these really underwhelming or completely off point answers that don't even touch upon what people want to hear.
Combined with a job that on paper, makes sense but is driven by heavy political backstabbing and arguing among the leadership, the situation where I work is just not an enjoyable place to be.
The actual pay itself is certainly appreciated and better than other places I have worked though recently after getting a very solid review, a "merit raise" of one and a half percent was all I walked away with, which is not even 50 extra per pay check. With how the cost of living spikes, I do expect that my company would be mindful of this.
Exceptional medical benefits, structured company that has many opportunities for certain skill sets, solid pay
Horrible time off schedule, Work salary but treated like hourly w/o compensation, clueless management, no realistic adjustment of wages based on economy/merit
I have been with this organization for six years and I have had a pleasant experience. Over all, it’s a solid company to work for if you are on a team that will encourage you to grow your career. If you are not, you may want to just use this company as a stepping stone to get to where you want to be. The culture encourages you to grow and to expand your knowledge base but depending on what team you are on, you may not be supported. The culture fosters changing roles or projects at least every three to five years but if you have a team that doesn’t want you to leave you may have a difficult time getting support to make a transfer to a different position. It can be frustrating. Take it with a grain of salt. Everyone’s experience is different.
A typical day at work is different from corporate and client site employees. If you are at corporate you have all of the lush amenities most corporations have. If you are on client site you are not privy to the corporate site benefits. Your client site varies depending on your organization you support. You could be in old World War II “refurbished” barracks with no air conditioning and one toilet that works. Or you could be in a business office setting where your bathrooms are cleaned on a regular basis and you have a microwave to heat up lunch. It just depends. The best place to be is at corporate site.
Senior Consultant (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – January 27, 2016
Booz Allen Hamilton is not your big 4. Their budget is not the same. Their environment isn't the same. I will say though, Booz Allen Hamilton is very flexible and great place to get your bearings in consulting. Booz Allen Hamilton offers incredible training opportunities and ability for growth.
STAFF ENGINEER (Current Employee) – Warner Robins, GA – January 21, 2016
Relaxed and comfortable work environment. Co-workers typically work as a team. Hardest part of job is finding an abundance of opportunities outside of the Washington DC/Maryland/Virginia area. The most enjoyable part is the flexibility in work locations. Depending upon the client needs, teleworking is an added bonus, The company has great health and wellness benefits.
Flexible Work Locations - Client Site, in office, telework
Job stability is reliant of contracts and in some cases a single-point of approval.
Cyber Vulnerability and Threat Analyst (Former Employee) – Chantilly, VA – January 18, 2016
I thought working here would have been the opportunity of a lifetime but I was sadly mistaken. Some things you have to experience for yourself but consider this a warning. Attempting to stay within guideline I will leave it at that. Good Luck.
