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.

Obtain Experience Matching Your Desires
Washington, DC | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I had a great manager who really made a strong effort to ensure I had relevant work to do continuously.


Downers

It was hard to get to know the other interns because were were all separated a lot.


Advice to Potential Interns

Booz Allen Hamilton is a great place to work. Work hard and never stop networking. If you do this, you will go far.


Advice to Management

Over time policies are kind of fuzzy, and no one really talks about it. It really should be more clear.

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

Yes

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.

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.

Interning at Booz Allen was a rewarding and fun experience
Other (US) | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The freedom given to me by the staff was great. I was placed on a team given a project then we were trusted to produce a great product. I was never treated like an intern.


Downers

Benefits interns receive such as certification training was determined by my department. My department had limited funds so I was not able to do certifications while I talked to other interns that were funded for certifications.


Advice to Potential Interns

Booz Allen’s interview process for interns is extremely different from other companies with Booz using a speed dating style of interviews. Keep an open mind and show every department that you can contribute. Once you get hired don’t be afraid to make mistakes, as long as you do work and try the managers will notice.


Advice to Management

Take more effort to expose the interns to different parts of the company. I enjoyed working at my department but never had an opportunity to see what other departments actually do.


Would You Recommend

Yes

A ten week evaluation of my work abilities in a true working environment
McLean, VA | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The opportunity to work on software with a real world impact, and the experience of working with full-time employees to understand the culture and skills required.


Downers

Minimal flexibility in project choice


Advice to Potential Interns

Treat the internship period as a 10-week paid job interview. You're not in the door yet, this is your chance to make the necessary impact to open up a world of opportunities.


Advice to Management

Offer close support, as needed, to your interns as they are young, inexperienced, and likely nervous about their ability to perform. With proper guidance many interns will have the opportunity to excel at their greatest potential.
