Big firm, lots of opportunities but know how to network
Associate (Current Employee) –  Rockville, MDApril 19, 2018
Depending on the project your work day can be 8-16 hours long. Strong culture of cultivating and retaining resources/employees. Great benefits and lots of opportunities. Need to know how to network, that's basically how you land jobs.
Pros

Good Job for people with business background
Project Analyst (Former Employee) –  Lexington Park, MDApril 17, 2018
I personally did not enjoy my time with this company. For people who have a business background this probably would be a good job. I came into the job without having a business background and was not taught how to do things very well.

A very good place to work. The staff is collaborative, smart, and friendly. Management is interested in the work we do and willing to listen to our concerns.

There are learning opportunities available from within the company and outside.

The work is stable and interesting.

Technically Challenging Work
SOFTWARE ENGINEER (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDApril 13, 2018
Booz Allen has many different contracts with a variety of technical work. Some positions are located at a client's site while some are in Booz Allen work spaces. It is much easier to feel connected to the company when working in a Booz Allen building.

Compared to other large companies, the benefits are slightly better and I feel that it is much easier to adjust your schedule to meet your family's needs.

Good place to grow
Senior Associate (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXApril 12, 2018
Monolithic firm with large matrixed bureaucracy. EVERYTHING is collaborative. Promotions and raises are very subjective--annual summary is largely irrelevant. The firm's focus on its core values is REAL and permeates all aspects of the business. Great people. I learned an amazing amount of things about business management, team management and leadership, business development, marketing, government contracting, strategic planning, and technical skills. I am assuming that any large company would be similar in many ways-- the good far, far outweighs any bad.
Pros
people, culture, skills learned, benefits
Cons
Bureaucracy, constant pace of business development

TACTICAL SYSTEMS INTEGRATION TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) –  Fort Leavenworth, KSApril 12, 2018
The best thing about the job is knowing that I had a positive impact on Soldier Training. The environment is a bit odd and the focus of effort regularly changes unexpectedly.
Cons
Uncertainty of Contracting

The job is what you make of it
Senior Proposal Manager (Current Employee) –  McLean, VAApril 6, 2018
The more people in your extended network at the firm that you can leverage, the better off you are. Work/life balance is usually off-kilter. Mistakes are generally unforgivable and, coupled with concurrent responsibilities that often continue, one-after-the-other, lead to an unbelievably unhealthy amount of stress.
Pros
Great people, good salary and benefits, sense of corporate pride
Cons
Nonstop pace, leadership can be unforgiving and provide mixed value.

Fast paced with a friendly atmosphere
Engineering Execution Team Lead (Current Employee) –  Aberdeen, MDApril 4, 2018
The people that work at BAH are qualified for their positions. People get along, teams get along, and the customer always comes first. Once an employee becomes an expert in their job, BAH looks to move him/her to another position to continue to develop more skills in the employee's arsenal of qualifications.
Pros
Training offered continuously, business lunches on a group level, motivation is high
Cons
Contracts can be versatile and unstable at times.

Pros
decent PTO
Cons
should be paid higher

Software Requirements Engineer (Current Employee) –  Charlottesville, VAApril 3, 2018
Though the company is large, the community I work in is small. There is excellent communication from the top down. They offer an excellent training budget for continued success for their employees. The benefits package is competitive.

yuck
Senior Associate - Technical Writer (Former Employee) –  Lexington, MAMarch 30, 2018
Terrible working for the Air Force. Slow, government bureaucracy which has no urge to fix its ailing systems on pace with adversaries abroad.

BAH doesn't really push the gov to be better, it just placates them so they receive more contracts.
