For the first time, Booz Allen participated in the Vault Consulting 50—a ranking based on input of more than 17,000 consulting firm employees in North America—and ranked as the #21 spot for 2019. Booz Allen also earned the #1 spot in the individual category of public sector consulting.

“As we tackle the demands of our day-to-day work and push clients to the edge of innovation, we only succeed if our people feel empowered and supported,” said Aimee George Leary, the head of talent strategy for the firm’s 24,000+ employees. “Employee feedback is what drives our evolution and is the root of many recently developed programs—such as increased tuition reimbursement and flexibility for external training, a new wellness incentive model, and equipping our leaders to have ongoing, meaningful career development conversations.”

Company scores are based on two components: First, how industry professionals rate Booz Allen’s reputation and prestige, and second, how employees rate the firm and their satisfaction with factors such as work-life balance, culture, and compensation.

Here’s what employees said about the Booz Allen experience:

  • “Booz Allen Hamilton has some of the smartest people I've ever met or worked with. But they aren't just brilliant...they're passionate about the work they do.”
