Culture, people, working style, projects, and the many locations were the best parts of the internship.

Downers

Since most of my project managers were away on business, there was little direction.

Advice to Potential Interns

It would be good to k ow that you must keep busy and find work to do if you find yourself stuck or lost.

I would like to make sure that I know exactly what to work on everyday rather than have to find people to explain when I don't know what to do.

Uppers

My fellow team members and the great atmosphere and morale at work.

Downers

There was some ambiguity related to my tasking in the beginning of the internship.

Advice to Potential Interns

I was a co-op for a specific department, which is different than the regular intern program. But, my experience was that Booz Allen does an amazing job taking care of its interns. They give you lots of opportunities to meet higher-ups and access their firm-wide resources. They are known for their career mentoring program, and they definitely emphasize that for interns.

Advice to Management

When I first arrived in the summer, there was some confusion about my placement, which was frustrating, because I felt at one point like I had to interview for an internship that I was already supposed to have. That being said, the situation was resolved when one of my previous managers heard about it and brought me back to his team.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Valuable opportunity for career exploration in the field of technology and consulting

Uppers

- Great Networking
- Experience in a professional environment
- Opportunity to get to know the consulting profession
- Great, down to earth career advice
- Encouraged to explore the company and ALWAYS ask questions

Downers

- I wish I had the opportunity to work with other interns or full-time employees more frequently, most of the time I was on my own

Advice to Potential Interns

The program is what you make of it. I was able to explore different projects, and interact with different capabilities within the company because I took the initiative to do so. If you ask questions, and explore, you will have a great time!

Advice to Management

I didn't so much care for the hoteling process. It was difficult to form relationships with employers and other interns since contact was limited by the availability of space. I made it work though.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Integrated into Booz Allen culture and mission via training, mentoring and on the job experience in computer security and pentesting

compensation, interesting work, project competition at end of summer

Downers

would have liked help finding apartment/living space

Advice to Potential Interns

Be in communications with the person coordinating your portion of the internship program. Let them know specifically what you are interested in so you can pursue that area and don't get put into something you have no interest in. When in doubt, communicate.

Advice to Management

help with finding housing/apartment, possibility for interns to enter as Sr. Consultant instead of Consultant when coming back full-time

Would You Recommend

Yes

The Booz Allen Hamilton Community

4.7 of 5 stars

Annapolis, MD | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The office culture was highly impressive. The people were supportive and really took an interest in making sure interns had a good experience and learned about the company. They were working to bring interns into the fold and train them for future employment rather than just have them assisting on a project for the Summer.

Downers

It did not seem that the people working on the project I was assigned to were entirely prepared for interns. Most of the interns had their own pieces of work to do within their project assignments, but I was mostly helping out here and there for the first few weeks.

Advice to Potential Interns

If you are looking for an internship with the possibility of future employment, this is the place to go to. The majority of the interns that I worked with got job offers at the end.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Ten weeks of Brand new Experiences each week

Learn and Used many different technologies. Met a lot people and had many great experiences

Downers

Traffic coming home. The end of work came extremely quickly

Advice to Potential Interns

Booz Allen Hamilton was a place where I was introduced to a wide range of different skills and technologies. My resume nearly doubled in my skills section because of the project that I had during the summer. Booz Allen Hamilton is a great place to for a young professional to be exposed to many different types of work all within one summer.

Advice to Management

Only advice I would give is to improve the response time of HR. It took a long time before the beginning of summer before the internship began.

Would You Recommend

Yes
