        • Compensation and Benefits
        Current Employee - Analyst in Molesworth, England

        I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton (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.

        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...

        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.

        Advice to Management

        There can be a tendency to be disconnected from employees at client site - work on fixing accessibility (e.g., devices for those on client site) and focus on communicating where the Firm is going.

        I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton (Less than a year)

        Pros

        The people are great. Everyone -- even the difficult types -- are eager to work and excel. There are some senior officers with questionable morality, but most people here are great people to work with.

        Cons

        1. Federal clients. Don't forget that you'll move at their pace, not yours. 2. The nature of the job means that sooner or later you'll be strategizing ways to get more money from the client (i.e. federal government), regardless of whether or not you'll actually add value. BAH runs on government money, a large chunk from DoD, and thus is part of the bigger problem we have in this country with fiscal responsibility....

        Advice to Management

        I'm leaving this job for two reasons, despite being hand-picked and groomed for greater responsibility by senior management. 1. You weren't paying me enough to do the job; especially when you factor in the amount of stress this job puts on a human being, the amount of time I sacrificed with my family, the amount of guilt this job inspired in me as an American. 2. The job is not meaningful to anyone who doesn't lust...
