Ideal environment for self starters and folks who take initiative. In my office there are many opportunities to learn new technologies and skills. The level of support from co-workers is awesome. Senior leadership is focused on new business development and are often inaccessible.

My experience was on a long project. It can be referred to as staff augmentation. I could speak more to the client than Booz Allen Hamilton, but my experience was great (particularly on work/life balance).
Human Performance Manager (Current Employee) – Baden-Württemberg – August 13, 2018
A company that treats its employees for what they are, subject matter experts in their field. Working for BAH you will find the sky is the limit, they encourage you to strive for more responsibilities.

Booz Allen stresses from the start that you are a consultant. They want you to evolve into your own independent unit that can both do work on the ground for an existing contract and be the sort of person who looks for ways to bring in new business for the company. This works well for some people and I don't necessarily think it's a bad thing.
Unfortunately, they tend to stress the "bring in new work" side more than the "fulfill existing obligations" part of things. They want everyone to put in hours here and there on things like proposal work or hiring events in addition to the 40 hours a week that you are expected to work on direct billable contract work (you know, work we already signed up for). Also, the process for annual salary increases is the most painful I've ever seen.
definitely opportunities for advancement if you can see them and take them
"highly encouraged" overtime, management doesn't often factor in your interests

Flexibility was a plus. Work-life "balance" is more of an integrations. Employee experience highly depends on the team, manager and location. As a large, international company, people's experience varied widely based on their manager's style.
Project Analyst (Former Employee) – Alexandria, VA – July 30, 2018
Highly recommend everyone spends some time at Booz. The learning experience alone sets you up for success. The workload can be stressful and days long. The company takes pride in its culture and promotes learning and development.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – El Segundo, CA – July 30, 2018
Ensuring teamwork is actually happening throughout the company is a challenge due to the numerous locations and branches. I was happy with my job per say, but was unhappy with management generally speaking.
Data scientist (Current Employee) – Texas – July 28, 2018
This is a great place to work with lots of opportunities. However, I was hired for a role but only a couple months out of a year have I actually done work in that role. Compensation is low for extent and the amount of work performed in and out of my hired role.
