I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Good benefits package, opportunity to participate in interesting work. Financial rewards can be good if you have a knack for bringing in revenue and new work.

Cons

Tumultuous work environment unless you are 100% on client site. Current focus is all about billable work with no tolerance for bench time (up through mid to senior management). Recruited to develop new market segment but immediately given 96% utilization target requiring I find billable work from day one. Very matrixed organization means you can be working for four or five different managers at any one time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Simplify organizational structure.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Work is interesting
    - Minor availability of thought-provoking projects

    Cons

    - Quality of staff has been declining with focus shifting to bringing in cheap labor while cutting experienced staff ranking from Associate to Partner
    - Quality of work has declined due to lack of loyalty from firm to its staff and clients catching on and cutting funding
    - No work available due to govt. budget cuts and funding cuts from clients, all while losing out on several projects to competitors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Going public has severely tarnished the brand and resulted in loss of funding on several projects. The work has been impacted due to several cost cutting measures which have resulted in reduction of highly eligible staff who have all jumped ship to competitive firms.
