Did anyone fully work from home at Booz Allen Hamilton ? Also do you guys think it can be a standard to be fully wfh? I accepted a job offer in DC but I’m from miami and I had a phone call with a Principal and he said Booz doesn’t mind but it all falls on the client’s needs.

My wife works for Booze and has been fully remote throughout the pandemic up until now. We have been thinking about moving out of the area so she asked about working 100% remote even once things get back to normal and she got approval.

Really project and client dependent. FWIT, they just emailed us today that our posture to remain telework-first will remain for the foreseeable future. We are delaying our Sept 7 reopening.

Congrats and welcome to Booz Allen!

Like the comments said. Whatever the client wants. My client is realizing we’re getting the work done from home and isn’t forcing anyone to come back. I’ve requested to work from multiple areas ATL, Dallas etc if I’m visiting family with no issues. I’m FT on client site.

Yeah, most of us are fully remote

Like others have said, it’s very client and admin team-dependent. My team in CSG has several people who are full-time remote, but in pre-COVID times a lot of us traveled every other week anyway, so it didn’t really matter where “home base” was. I’m looking to move from the DC area in a few years and (recompete willing), I’d like to keep my job. I had 8+ years of working from the road before COVID, and now 18 months of WFH, so I’ve already proven that I can be successful wherever I’m based.

It is client dependent, and when people say client they’re usually referring to the preferences of the fed decision makers of the contract / task orders and not the government agency and/or objective mission needs of the work.

The good news is the government is under a lot of pressure to unload a lot of their leased office space and assume a more progressive posture when it comes to WLB and being less of an “ass-in-the-seat” employer, which should trickle down to contractors as well. I’m willing to bet once the government figures out wtf they want to do after the dust of the pandemic settles, there will be a lot less office space to mandate their contractors report to. WFH saves the government a lot of money, especially in DC.

Thank you so much for such a good response..

Depends on what you do at BAH. I was in ESG (Corporate Internal), the “official” expectation was in office 1-2 times a month for reporting purposes once they opened the offices back up. Our VP said they didn’t care what we did but it’d be nice to get together at least once a quarter.

NST that is in JHT. I’m in JHT. It always has been remote-friendly; it is only getting better. I can probably guess who you spoke to.
What they are saying is you’re 99% likely to stay in Miami but just be prepared if a client needs you onsite you may have to relo or travel. If that doesn’t work for you, we are going pretty good at swapping your project to one that fits your needs. They just want you to know that is not a guarantee.

like

Also expect your salary to be cut if you stay there in Miami. COL is higher in dc and that’s the salary that they’d be paying you

like

Yeah my understanding is salaries don’t ever go down. Sure it’s theoretically possible, but if someone has voluntarily moved to a lower COL area and runs into affordability issues getting onto new contracts because of their rate, they personally owned the risk and not the firm, and they’re more likely to be handed a LOW than asked to take a pay cut. Everyone on my contract that has ever started in DC and moved elsewhere has taken their DC salaries with them.

I really can’t see the firm asking anyone to go down in compensation right now. The job market is so hot in high and low COL areas alike, it just doesn’t make sense. Almost everyone within arm’s reach of me is asking for and being approved for double digit MSAs right now…

like

Yes we have mostly all been full time remote

like

It really is client dependent, but you can always look for projects that are more flexible with their work arrangements once we finally establish a new normal.

I’ve been with the firm for about 8 years and only had to go in full time for about 1.5 years. Occasionally I would go in to see my team or the project manager wanted us all together once a week, but if you’re not in the area that wouldn’t be an expectation.

I have been fully WFH since 2019. I’m in midwest and clients on east coast.
Prior to that I did 15 years assigned to an office but traveled so much that I was WFH in all ways but on paper. I have come and gone as I pleased my entire career. Even my travel schedule was my doing.

ESPECIALLY if you are a consultant who is actually good
