    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.

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

    Pros

    They have amazing leadership, teams, departments, and believe in empowerment and professional development while doing the day to day role activities. This is one of the top industry consulting firms and should be considered one of the best to learn from and work for in consulting. There are several opportunities for professional development and education to move into greater roles.

    Cons

    Most jobs are listed on site, so networking is key for not only remote opportunities but great client sites to work within.

    I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time

    Pros

    I guess its too early to say. Will be back to update.

    Cons

    Hiring process wasn't the best. Kept asking recruiter what I preferred, felt like she dismissed it. Starting, feels like I was given no direction.
