    Analyst in Molesworth, England

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton for less than a year

    Pros

    Our contract was just upgraded, we now make 20 days of paid time off per year, and 6% matching 401K contributions. Life insurance for one year's worth of salary is also included. Other benefits are available. A housing allowance is also provided.

    Cons

    No yearly bonuses, nor is there a way of increasing your salary other than apply for other jobs. The housing allowance is small, but better than nothing.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton

    Pros

    The work at Booz Allen is fascinating - it is fast paced and impactful. It has given me the chance to understand the inner workings of the government and be incredibly close to decision making. Over the past decade, I have had the chance to work on multiple assignments, gain increasing levels of responsibility, and have never been bored. I have had high-quality managers and the Firm has invested in my growth (a graduate degree and multiple certificates).

    Cons

    Occasionally decision-making at Booz Allen can feel bureaucratic - especially things that go back to headquarters. You have to own your career - and build your network to identify new projects and growth opportunities. Your manager can guide you, but you alone are responsible.
