Booz Allen or Deloitte? Am jumping from D to BAH in DC area for better pay and being able to do work that I’m interested in (hopefully). General pros/cons post-Covid comparing the two firms?

great work/life balance at bah. pay is typically lower than other firms though so something to think about (in the long term)

like

Better WLB at BAH, generally large salary bands at each level due to lack of up or out for most levels, but it can be harder to get LA-P promotions than comparable ones at D due to undefined promotion criteria and politics within your admin pyramid.

I made the same jump earlier in my career and enjoyed BAH quite a bit more than D.

like

I will add on that while the pay bands are wider at BAH, your position on those bands is quite variable and dependent on your admin chain, the client, and the project itself.

You could have two Associates with identical resumes, one making $155k and one making $85k, entirely dependent on the aforementioned factors.

like

WLB is certainly better at BAH, I would carefully consider earning potential over short/medium term. BAH does not bonus until Sr Ass (not significant anyway).

like

I’m planning on exiting BAH before I get promoted. So it made sense for me to jump ship for the sizeable pay bump and supposedly better WLB (although WLB was already solid at Deloitte GPS). My only gripe is I’m gonna have less PTO. but I’m excited to longer have to report my investments bc that really sucked at D 😭

After BAH took over our last contract after recompete, I was effectively offered my old job at a pay cut, so I declined.

like

I’ve heard biggest plus of going to BAH is that they actually focus on mission centric roles/projects… true?

like

That is tough. They are both great companies! I would probably go with BAH for the WLB.

Hey everyone! I need some advice. I’ve accepted an offer for a new job, but I’m in a bit of a rush to get out of the position I’m working right now. I start the new job July 18. My job now doesn’t care about their employees, and it’s a health risk for my family and I due to unsafe COVID policies (i.e. forcing you to come in even if you’re sick, making you use PTO for COVID even if working from home, etc). Is there anything short term I can do until July? Or should I stay until then?

Life is never fair: some of us considered promotions as such an important milestone in our life and busts our ass for it, and they don’t get it due to COVID. Others don’t even care about their job and don’t care about their manager’s feedback and still got to stay in the company.

Hi everyone, looking for advice on current job situation. Recently left Deloitte after a few years for a job in industry, primarily because I was burnt out since COVID began. Have been at new company for a couple months and have enjoyed it, but recently heard back from another interview and received offer with higher comp in my industry/company of preference. I understand that I’ll probably be blacklisted at my current company, but what other repercussions should I be concerned about if I switch
