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.

The Booz Allen Hamilton Community
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.

Ten weeks of Brand new Experiences each week
Other (US) | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

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.

4.4 of 5 stars

Great exposure to private sector and cybersecurity work
McLean, VA | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

My involvement in multiple facets of my division (production and management). The number of options to self-improve outside of work (Security+ and CEH training offered, along with lectures).


Downers

Less involvement with other interns than I would have liked


Advice to Potential Interns

Consulting work at Booz can be one of the most interesting career choices but only if when you get there you have the drive to chase after projects, get to know people in other divisions, and always try to self-improve.

N/A
McLean, VA | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Paid, in field I wanted, in desierable location, prestigious company, great program, great managers, great co-workers, great intern class


Downers

Wanted full week of Security+ training, not just class on the weekend


Advice to Potential Interns

Network during your internship, talk with your manager and leadership team about your goals and opportunity for advancement, if you get an offer you'll be farther ahead than your peers when you begin full time


Advice to Management

Have more happy hours, possibly provide an area where other interns are living, work with apartment companies to get them to offer short term leases to your interns


Would You Recommend

Yes

Valuable opportunity for career exploration in the field of technology and consulting
McLean, VA | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


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.

Real-world experience focused on subject matter relevant to your academic focus
Herndon, VA | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Relevance to academic discipline/interesting work
Attention received from current employees for questions and other issues


Downers

Projects were slow to start, which resulted in some wasted time at the beginning of the internship


Advice to Potential Interns

Make sure that your assigned work will be in an area that is similar to your academic discipline


Advice to Management

Begin planning the intern projects earlier so that everything will be set up from the first day they arrive to work


Would You Recommend

Yes

Great networking opportunities
Herndon, VA | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The intern culture that we created was great, we all bonded very well. So not only did we get the most out of our work experience we explored the area that we were in and had a full social life as well to maintain a good balance. The full-timers were also really great at engaging us and trying to understand in what ways we wanted to network and further our career.


Downers

Some interns did not have full-time members that actively reached out to them or were able to give them additional tasking.


Advice to Potential Interns

Note that Booz Allen does a lot of government work so keep in mind that you have to be eligible for security clearances depending on what you would like to do. Also take a look at the Core Values since that is very important to the company.
