    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton for 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. 3. Living off the American taxpayer. Much of the money that flies around in DC is at the expense of everyone else everywhere else in the US, BAH is a major player in this system, particularly the defense technology sector. 4. You'll never get paid what you're worth. The three lowest ranks (Consultant, Sr. Consultant, Associate) seldom make what they're worth, while senior management (looking at you, officers) make insane amounts of money.

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -You'll definitely meet and work with nice intelligent people -Upper management is both uplifting and will listen to your opinions and preferences when selecting projects -Plenty of opportunities for training and plenty of sports teams which is a great way to network and get to know your admin team -Great place to work right out of college -Good work life balance

    Cons

    -The majority of the projects are federal meaning you work at their pace rather than your own which can be tedious -Federal projects move slowly meaning growth opportunities and the ability to use new technologies are limiting -Internal demand for commercial projects are so high that waiting lists can go for years -Projects are very spread out so your commuting times can be very high thus offsetting work life balance

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Really amazing, motivated, and smart people doing impactful work and trying to do it well. It's a breath of fresh air in the often mercenary, profiteering management consulting industry.

    Cons

    Compensation is low, no bonuses below the Senior Associate level, and depending on which account and office you're aligned to, you may have trouble finding the exact role you want. Also the compensation issue means that they have trouble attracting the top-level talent where they need it.

    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There's always a lot of different opportunities at Booz; mostly focused on the Govt sector although there are positions related to the private sector. Management was great and you can feel the company continually finding ways to make the workplace more progressive. The company is growing a lot so there's a lot going on!

    Cons

    I had decent pay, but I feel like the pay for employees in similar positions varied greatly. I think I was paid decent, but knew others who were paid a lot more and others who were paid a lot less.
