We are not too thrilled about the lack of cultural diversity BAH is bringing. Rest - time will tell.

BAH1 I dont think you understand what OW1 is talking about. Please put down your shield for a second and read again.

Surprised this didn’t happen sooner. Not too thrilled overall, but it seems in line with the firm’s focus on (US) government contracting.

Kearney was in the process of acquiring it few years ago, but for some reason the deal didn’t close (unrelated to Covid).

no it was a team hire effort, not an outright acquisition. They were exposed and sued by BAH HQ

It was only a matter of time really…

Wasn't OW founded by Booz Allen Hamilton partners? It's come full circle in a way 😁

Everything was founded by Booz Allen at some point… 😂

What do you guys @OW think? Like it? Not much? Are the cultures compatible?

I guess BAH guys are happy that they don’t have to interview to join OW but I can’t imagine OW guys are too thrilled

OW acquired the entire business and its engagements, not just the workforce. You shouldn’t have to re-interview for your own job. That said, and as with each acquisition, there will probably be consolidation and both sides will be impacted…
