Great firm with wonderful colleagues

Featured review

Booz Allen Hamilton selected this as a representative review
Booz Allen is a fantastic firm that pays well and treats all team members with respect. Like all management and technology consulting firms, contracts come and go, so turnover is fairly common. Fortunately, Booz Allen has a solid program in place to help those "at the beach" find new positions.

Toxic Work Environment

I worked here for a little over a year and it was by far the worst year of my working career. From the beginning it was easy to tell I didn’t fit in. It had a cult like mentality and it was strange. They pressured me to be more social while I was at the client site, even though I told them I don’t like it and my PTSD makes it a little more difficult for me to make small talk. If your leadership doesn’t like you they will go out of their way to make you’re like miserable. It got to the point it was so bad I had to reach out to HR and start documentation during every meeting.

Very larger company

Large company, however they are new to the AI/ML work just like most companies. Although I was hired as a AI/ML engineer I did no computer vision work.

Average Experience

Pay was less than satisfactory. Opportunity for growth is reliant upon factors that are not always clear. After leaving the firm was notified that there was a PII leak and my information was apart of that leak. When I called to get more information they were less than unhelpful.

Executive Assistant

BAH is a great company to work with the flexible remote opportunities and competitive pay and benefits. Closed a few offices but overall stable. Loved my EA teammates.

Amazing company, Amazing personnel

Just a flat out great place to work. The people are phenomenal, the work/life balance is really good. The company genuinely really cares about its employees, has more than adequate pay, great benefits. I truly enjoyed my time there.

The Best

I'm mid career and feel I've found my home here. In just a few months, I'm blown away by the quality of people, value of work and the entire organization. Sure it's still work and there are bumps. But this place is amazing. If you're humble and talented, join us

Good experience overall

Great place to work - complicated promotion system in some ways. Experience will depend on your client leadership as well as engagement with a high quality career manager

A good gig depending on the contract

I feel fortunate to have worked at BAH because I met some amazing people and further developed my skills. The pros: it was remote, over all my colleagues were nice and engaging, they trust employees to work independently with little instruction, and the flexibility was awesome.The cons: feeling dispensable. If your contract doesn't need you, better find a new gig quick. You are assigned a career manager but from my experience they're not too on the ball as they have others reporting to them as well. If you try to get a gig when already in a gig, good luck. Transitioning is extremely hard. The pay is surprisingly bad. Toward the end of my tenure I found out that a colleague who had only been there for +9 months longer than me and was one above in title was making 10k more than me. Even though I had a longer career and worked with more established companies. Promotions were also a downside. Unless you ask and campaign for one will you possibly get one because after jumping through hurdles, there still has to be a need for you to get promoted.

Great company!

Projects are mostly for federal clients. Pay is ok but it is based on the technology you work in. Benefits are good, work culture depends on the client

If you're going contracting, go Booz

Booz has a robust internal structure with a war chest of resources that enable it to put its employees in positions to succeed. The worst part speaking frankly is sometimes some incompetent with a higher certification and more job experience by virtue of their age is put in a managerial position and can harsh the vibes. Otherwise, the people that are good are really good and it's a great place to network and grow.


Plenty of opportunity to grow


Could get stuck with a lame job leader

Emphasis on Balance; supportive leaders

My time at Booz Allen has helped me find balance in my personal and professional life. My leadership supports me to upskill and be the best asset I can be.

Excellent management, easy growth, excellent education plans, and excellent team events.

I was lucky to work at the McLean Campus (it's beautiful), it has a large gym, several small kiosk's that sell cold beverages, lunch items, and hot beverages in it's hallways. Walking to my office/desk and starting up the computer to check emails and start on the days assignments. Every team I've worked on was professional, fun, and ever so knowledgeable of what we were working on at the time. I've learned so much over the 19 years I was employed with Booz Allen Hamilton that I've been able to share and educate others my experiences. Leadership is committed to ensure everyone is treated fairly, and has a voice. Lastly, winning tickets to a music concert, sports venue and plays was thrilling! Lastly, receiving a bonus or a paper award during a project, and given a yearly bonus for your tenure was most satisfying!


Yearly Spring, Summer and Winter parties. Winning concert tickets, and sports tickets

Good experience

Hard working, talented people, poor management - arbitrary decision-making process. Know that people dont quit because their job is bad, rather they quit because of bad managers!

Multiple roles

With a place and role for many there were many teams. Coordination and communication wasnt clearly shared, there were many silos and it was hard to clearly grasp big picture and alignment.

Welcome to the Nasty side of the grind

Okay, here is the Short version, they want you to be a file clerk out of college, and if you want to do anything extraordinary, kiss someone's tail or be former military since they want the network, not the person.

Its laid back, and relaxed

Very laid back chill place to work. Wages are lower than other firms but the work is easy and they pay even when on the bench so you don't really need to worry about much.
