"I joined BAH in Jul 2008 and was immediately impressed with how they supported their employees. Above industry standard benefits/401K contributions and most impressive to me, tremendous support transitioning between contracts. Instead of just letting folks go, they worked hard to find everyone jobs within the firm. I saw this in my first weeks with them for another team, then again when our contract ended last Sept."

"I have limited experience in company due to being hired with intention to win contract that in fact we failed to win. They had other opportunities but none that suited where I wanted to go."

"Retired military good ol' boys made this job hell."

What do you like about working at Booz Allen Hamilton?

"The compensation packages are higher than most other government contractors, and it's well-deserved! I worked with experienced, amazingly brilliant, innovative people, unlike the barely-graduated, Freddy-fly-by-nights typical of companies like SAIC. When I worked for BAH, the focus was on hiring an employee to be developed, not just used for one contract gig and tossed aside. Lots of opportunities for professional development, and the employee review system is fair."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Be aware that you're getting into a company that, while handsome in its compensation package, will demand a LOT of you outside of your billable hours. They really do expect you to socialize, go for drinks, golf, participate in community events and those mandatory fun picnics. You're also expected to participate in employee organizations, do more education and continued training, whether you need it or have time or not. For all BAH touts its work-life balance, there isn't much room for the life part."

What don't you like about working at Booz Allen Hamilton?

"The culture at regional offices, particularly those in the public sector division, is not healthy. A plethora of retired military good ol' boys makes the work environment downright hostile to women, LGBT people, and anyone not an arch-conservative. If you work here and you're not a straight, white, nominally Christian male with a Republican voter registration, be prepared to shut up, nod, and kiss a lot of ass, particularly if you're client-site based rather than at the home office."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Stop worrying so much about appearances and focus on substance."

What do you like about working at Booz Allen Hamilton?

"The people I work with are exceptional and very easy to work with in a team."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Great company to work for if you have a solid contract, but can be very shaky if you contracts are not managed well and you have to move around frequently."

What don't you like about working at Booz Allen Hamilton?

"Contracts seem hard to find as the government has started to reign in their budget. So this means I now have to commute longer trips."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Just be open when things look bad; it just makes it worse when you are the last to know."
