Currently at Booz. Culture/experience is better than most places I’ve worked. Getting ready for a different performance management approach kicking off this month so ready yourself for the growing pains there. Depending on your role, and what you want, there is a lot of variety but access to those roles initially will be based a lot on your admin team’s network. I’ve gone and come back if that helps at all

Spent almost 10 years at Booz and loved it. Learned so much and there are great mentors there. Culture was pretty amazing - most of my closest friends are from my Booz days Make sure you build a strong network of people there - you never know where your next billable gig could come from.

Experiences will vary dramatically depending on team, market, and location. People will want you to succeed, but it’ll be up to you to take the initiative and make it happen!

I worked at BAH for about a year before I jumped to Deloitte. The vibe wasn’t what I wanted/the work I was doing was dry - Federal space. However I have two close friends (both Sr Cons) there now and they hate it 😞

Your vibe/experience will depend on the market group you're joining (Defense/Civil/Health/Commercial/etc.). Also depends on your administrative team (VP/Principal tree). I've been at both Accenture and Deloitte. My time at BAH has been very positive so far (~2 years).

@A3 - most revenue does come from government work, but Booz has been aggressively trying to grow their commercial business, especially in cyber. Their commercial cyber practice went through some turnover (in leadership) with some key departures. Though I heard the ship is now on a good path with the hiring of former Target CISO

Hi All, I recently interviewed at Amazon and Google for software engineer and passed both interviews. I have an offer on the table from Amazon but with Google I am officially in team matching and my recruiter tells me that the queue is pretty backed up now and it can take a long time. My question is should I take the Amazon offer now or decline Amazon and hold out for Google? I have heard that Google has better wlb/benefits. But I'm scared to decline Amazon without a guaranteed job offer.

I'm coming to the end of a contract term and being converted to FTE.

The offer was presented to me by the hiring manager and not HR/Recruiter. To me it is a lower base salary offer than expected, so I asked for info on the total compensation package (base, benefits, bonus, stock/rsu, etc.), which I was told about when they took me on under the contract with the intention to convert.

Hiring manager sends me an email with only standard benefits, no bonus, etc. Are these red flags?
