    I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton

    Pros

    --Good training ops. --Salary/Benefits/Social activities that are swanky.

    Cons

    --Top-heavy whereby too many managers are doing admin and not the actual work of the "practice" (Booz-speak for the individual tech team or group of teams which serve one client or one sector such as the US Navy). --The company is overally "balkanized." It's harder than expected to move from one practice to another. It's almost like there are several small B-A&Hs instead of one company.
