Obligatory negative post from Deloitte. Glad we got that out the way...

What companies for example? Big 4 will almost certainly be the same experience, no?

Thanks for the perspective. Really haven’t researched the big 4 as I didn’t think the clients and WLB would be better. I already passed up another position in the private sector due to a healthy MSA. The $ is great but I always think of what could have been, so don’t want to decide based on money alone. That said I have an offer from CT that matches BAH so really want to assess the original question. Also, I’m interested in possibly relocating to Richmond where CT is HQ’ed

Booz Allen has better name brand recognition. However, depends on what you're looking for, what you want to do, and your skill set. Booz may underpay you, but not if you're coming from a competitor. Mostly federal, very tiny commercial practice.

On a good career track with a good team at Booz but am getting tired of our Federal clients and projects that go nowhere. It seems like there is a trend of over-promising and under-staffing - so these projects can actually be very stressful. On top of that you get random emails that you will be working a proposal on your off hours on top of whatever “investment” work you’re already doing above and beyond client work. All this while managing your administrative team and covering for folks who are out of office. I’ve learned a ton juggling all this and feel like it’s good timing for a switch to better work-life balance. Just unsure if I’d be switching to more of the same and am a bit concerned that i could be stunting my growth. Alternatively, there is an opportunity to make a big impact at a smaller company and experience a new environment. Just curious what the bowl thinks.

I feel you can bounce to better companies, use the name of Booz and be picky about where you bounce!

Depends on federal vs. commercial for Big 4. Also, they pay more, lol. 30-40%, even 50% more especially if you're underpaid here at Booz. Also, BCG and McKinsey have federal practices, albeit small. Can also go to client and a get a good GS. Are you only looking for federal opportunities, though? Would you be open to non-federal since you mentioned being tired of federal clients? Also, tech firms are hiring including FAANG (well, Amazon and Google here in D.C.). Industry is another option (i.e. healthcare) and may provide the work-life balance you're seeking. Lots of options.

Have you thought about changing teams at Booz? There are different cultures within the teams. CT can be good for WLB but consider what else is also important to you because WLB can be found at Booz too.

Anyone have trouble connecting to their hot spot at airports? Like it doesn’t appear in the network/internet for you to select. Or when it does it spins and then says can’t connect.

I think our review system is a joke. How can you have a 3-month review process for a 6-month cycle? It’s a bit too thorough - if it is 😂😂

How bad is it if you sign an offer letter but then decide to not take the job? I know that company and recruiter will never talk to me again.
