Looks out for the almighty dollar
Business Operations Manager (Former Employee), Panama City Beach, FLApril 2, 2014
The company talks about looking out for its people but it doesn't. When it comes down to it, it is all about money.

Management Consultant, Intelligence Analyst (Current Employee), DMV areaMarch 31, 2014
Booz Allen is a great company.

Pros: lots of opportunities to advance skills, decent job security for government contracting field, some really great managers, lots of opportunities to find mentors, good pay and benefits, lots of formal and informal learning opportunities and forums.

Cons: ensuring employees rapidly find billable work means you can – more... sometimes end up stuck with work not in line with your interests or abilities – less

Good place to work
Associate (Current Employee), Rockville, MDMarch 25, 2014
I enjoy working with smart co-workers and you get to do that at BAH. However, over the past decade the culture has changed to be more of a "butts in seats" consulting firm. The higher level, big brain, consulting gigs seem to be increasingly going to other firms.

Challenging, rewarding work in an increasingly difficult marketplace
Associate (Current Employee), Belcamp, MDMarch 24, 2014
While I enjoy the work that I do at Booz Allen, it has become more and more difficult to find the perfect contract vehicle to develop as a project manager and employee. Our exercise-based capability is not fully supported by the firm due to fluctuations in schedule and a general lack of predictability in the marketplace.

Great company; excelling in job diversity
Executive Administrative Officer (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALMarch 24, 2014
Pros: working for people and coordinating to make things run smoothly
Cons: not having a back-up person when on vacations/sick.
A typical day at work would be to basically run the office from all aspects. Scheduling/Managing Video Teleconferences, "go-to" person for every aspect of the office, answering phones, scheduling meetings, ordering equipment, maintaining all office equipment/supplies, preparing all travel packages, sending clearances, setting up conferences, coordinating – more... events, briefings, hosting external, senior-level executive conferences. I learned all government language and acronyms. – less

Highly competive and quality-product-oriented environment
Operations Research Engineer (Current Employee), Tampa, FLMarch 23, 2014
Pros: excellent and very demanding.
Cons: contract will expire and no plans for renewal/extension.
Every day is very demanding; management is great as well as co-workers. Many decisions taken since "9/11 War on Terrorism" have been taken by the Department of Defense and the US CENTRAL command as direct (or indirect) results of the analysis conducted by our team.

The only negative aspect of the job is that the company can offer the services only – more... when the Department of Defense demands "the consultant-services" the company provides. The present contract that I have been working for the five past years (and 15 years before this period) will expire on 15 April 2014 and due the "present economy" there are no plans to extend the current contract in the future. Only government employees will continue our work. I will have no job after April 15th. – less

Associate (Current Employee), Honolulu, HIMarch 17, 2014
BAH depends on which client one is working for, & they range in terms of compensation & job satisfaction. I like my current client, but my salary is unsatisfactory.

Nonstop Production
Financial Analyst (Current Employee), Fort Bragg, NCMarch 13, 2014
Pros: competitive, motivating, pay
Cons: being a contractor and working under managment that reminds you of that consistently
In between my weekly breifings that I provide to the Chief of Staff and his Deputy Commander, I push myself to stay on task with my weekly assessments that I am required to submit to my company. I use the weekly assessments as a briefing to keep the Chief of Staff up to date on his unit being officially "audit ready". The client may be demanding but – more... it's trained me to make the best use of my time throughout my workday and I enjoy remaining busy at work and feeling like I'm needed to accomplish an essential mission. As the staff asks questions that I may not have all the answers to, I've learned to work with my team to figure who to go to for the best answers to various situations and I respect that in the Booz Allen atmosphere. I've become alot more experienced in designing spreadsheets from the numerous reports I'm required to export from GFEBS, which is the main ERP system and its feeder systems, such as DTS, AXOL, and GCSS-A. I also work on my monthly CBA invoice to ensure that outstanding charges and any unmatched disbursements are being reconciled. – less

BAH
Senior Consultant (Current Employee), McLean, VAMarch 12, 2014
You can experience great success at BAH or great failure. Sadly, it really has nothing to do with how talented you are and more about your client and if you have a competent manager.
