Booz Allen is a man's world. The office environment is not safe and the Ethics line is a complete joke. The Ethics line call center people didn't even know if BAH would ever receive a copy of my report, or who it would go to, or if they would follow up.j

    No ability to work at a booz allen site; all work must be completed at the client site. Cannot be at client site without client employees. Every time the government employees are off, leave early, or arrive late, we have to burn PTO. Appointments at booz allen sites are non-billable and we do not get paid for that time.

It's consulting - it's long hours, and extra work isn't billable. Flexibility is very depending on your project team.

    If you can get a good salary and level coming in, internally promotions etc. are all very structured and I think fairly executed. But if you come on at a lower level or start with a mediocre pay rate, you will never get out of that cycle. You'll always be behind.

There is a strong double standard that is not acknowleged. Without a better awareness of the unconscious bias against women and persons of color, genuine correction of promotion practices cannot occur. Only lip service.

I had great female leadership on my contract! Can't speak to dynamics beyond that team.

Negotiate your salary - they will absolutely low-ball you and you should really look to what you are worth or can get somewhere else.

I don't like that I'm required to give input to see reviews. I don't have valuable insights since I'm early in my career but would benefit from seeing this information.

Optional networking opportunities and outside-of-work projects? Not really, unless you never want to get promoted. Also, it often feels like a boy's club. Pay was bad compared to other consulting firms, and work could be mind-numbing and not challenging. No work-life balance. I left due to boredom during the day and stress after hours.

Booz Allen makes honest attempts to promote diversity, and depending on your situation, you might be able to find mentoring and support. But there are definitely some biases under the surface, especially when it comes to how the male-dominated client views your work. It was also a very competitive environment in general, even across genders. As a bright young newcomer to a team, I encountered some adversarial relationships with other females.

    Diversity is a challenge, especially for women of lower socioeconomic backgrounds.
