Excellent Corporate Culture and Collaborative Environment
McLean, VA | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Opportunities to be involved in all aspects of the firm and experience different potential career paths. We also had the chance to network and form relationships with many of the current employees and among thr intern group as well.


Downers

I intered there for two summers, my first summer I ended up not being able to do any external work on our project because of the timing for recieving a clearence and disagreements with the client on allowing an inter to charge to the contract. I think better planning and preparation could be helpful in avoiding this problem in the future.


Advice to Potential Interns

Take advantage of all hte opportunities given to you as an intern. It may seem like a lot to get involved in everything, but its only one summer and the things you learn and the connections you make will pay off in the long run. Also, don't hesitate to ask any questions, everyone was always willing to anser questions and give advice.


Advice to Management

Overall I think the company did a great job at orienting and developing the interns. After completing two years of interships I was asked to sit down with the coordinators for our intern team and discuss my thoughts and opinions which I think is an integral part of continuing to advance and develope the program.

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.

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.

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

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.

Obtain Experience Matching Your Desires

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.

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.

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.
