Living our ethics day in, and day out 

We adhere to the highest standards of business ethics and integrity. We’re proud to have been one of the first organizations in the U.S. to adopt a formal statement of business ethics.

The origins of our commitment to culture and ethics trace back to the 1930s, when Carl Hamilton wrote the firm’s first formal code of ethics. By codifying our commitment to integrity and values, he set the course for the firm’s focus on culture and ethics that is growing stronger today.

We're committed to the highest standards of business ethics and integrity. In addition to our board-level Ethics and Compliance Committee, we have also established an Ethics and Business Integrity Office, a corporate-level function to coordinate the firm's ethics and compliance program. With board-level oversight by the Audit Committee, our ethics program governance bodies promote our values, protect the firm, and ensure that employees who have concerns can effectively report them.

We hold all of our employees accountable for ethical behavior established by a common code of business ethics and compliance known as our Green Book. And we partner with organizations that are committed to ethical behavior as governed by our Partner in Ethics program.

Our values are not simply statements of principle or aspirations for what we endeavor to achieve—they are bonds that connect us in everything we do.

A culture of inclusion 

At Booz Allen, we celebrate and value diversity in all its forms. This view extends beyond gender, ethnicity, disabilities, sexual orientation, and cultural heritage to include the many ways our people identify themselves.

We know that these differences lead to unique ways of thinking and approaching challenges—something we truly value as a multicultural community of problem solvers. In fact, diversity has always been one of our firm’s guiding values.

We know it’s about more than just building a diverse workforce. We’re committed to offering a culture and environment of inclusion that fosters respect and opportunity for all our people. That commitment is evident in everything from our firmwide celebrations of affinity and cultural heritage, to our inclusive offerings such as health benefits for domestic partners, and parental benefits for all of our working moms and dads, including adoptive and LGBTQ parents.

Inclusion is more than a concept at Booz Allen. It is embodied in our culture. It is who we are—a place where we know we can truly be ourselves.

Company culture

Lots of problems in the culture: mgr told others about a subordinate, mentioned him by name & his medical problems. Project lead forces us to talk with him constantly on the phone for hours at a time, even after work. Career mgr doesn't know the difference between verbal abuse & personality conflict, real air-head. 1 person in our team will not adhere to customer requirements & does whatever he wants w/ no consequences.

Level of Autonomy

Trusted-no. Project lead reminds us constantly that we need to be @ our computers with Slack & Skype on all of the time.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Booz Allen boosts themselves to be above the rest and to be part of an elite group of consultants, but the real fact is far from that. Management is distant from employees, company values change too often, company only cares about at the bottom line and forgets about the people that bring in that revenue, poor advancement opportunities, salary competitiveness is below average due to the high costs of overhead and expected company profit, and the list can go on and on. Leadership, at least at the Quantico area location, is immature and lacks a lot of the basic leadership skills needed to be an effective and powerful leader. Management changes in this area quite often giving the impression that no one wants to be on this team long. If you are planning on joining the Booz Allen team, be aware that you must negotiate your best possible deal up front as when you get in you are pretty much locked in to a bleak future. Another interesting fact, the turn over rate here at the Quantico team is very high. Not only myself, but 6 to 7 other team members have left the firm and never looked back. This alone gives solid testament that something just isn't right here. Just be warned is all I have to say. * Advise to Management - Increase leadership skills, look to help employees further their career and help them advance, stay connected and not distant, stop changing core values and company slogans just to be changing them and stick with one and solidify it. Make Booz Allen worthwhile to work for not just for today but for a career long choice. Don't treat certain teams in one manner and others in a different manner due to their location. Stop the double standard rules with employees with more years versus those with little years. We all wear the same badge so it is imperative that leadership ensures that all practices, values, rules and regulations are followed across the board completely.

What I dislike about the company

Only care about the profits and let their employees suffer in return
