I am an MBA graduate with a secret clearance. I accepted an offer as a junior data scientist at Booz Allen Hamilton . I'll be doing the tech excellence data science program. Does anyone have any experience with this program? Do you get placed after the program is done? What happens when there is no project lined up? Also, how often do you get projects and how often are you on the bench?

Don’t have experience with the project but can answer some other questions you have. I’m assuming once you get off the project they will try to move you to another one, internal or external or will be on the bench. Everyone is different when it comes to how long they are on projects, I end up switching projects a lot some stay on projects for years. The bench is the same way, some are on it for a week some up to a months, just depends on your skill set and what is needed on a project

Yes, it's hard to predict what project placement will be like. I've spent over a year on my current project, but I was benched for 3 months before.

I heard it was pretty good! My friend did it but ended up having to leave halfway through the program cause she went on maternity leave

My colleague did it and enjoyed the program. He had his project lined up from the start. He knew the project with his offer. Did they mention a project to you or did they call you a “capability hire” ?

Has an external offer and told the team, advisor and coach that I want to transfer from Deloitte audit to advisory last Wednesday. They said they are working on it, but didn’t hear an update as of today (around 4 business days). Checked my source schedule, the client assigned to me before was gone now all are empty. What is that mean? Transfer successfully? My team is supportive and introduce me to the other team, but make me nervous now. Anyone don’t have successful transfer experience?

Here’s a weird question for the MBB folks - how competitive would you say you guys are, internally? I think people at ACN arent not competitive but most of us generally do want to help each other succeed. Meanwhile, I’ve heard there’s some particularly sharp elbows in MBB, especially toward the EMs…would you guys say this is true? Curious how cut throat the internal mentality is.
