Re: O.K., so looking for info on Booz Allen

They're pretty much at the top of the "Beltway Bandits". They are a way of the Government to hire contract engineering and management consulting people and they administer lots of Gov. contracts. Coming out of manufacturing and a defense company where we actually designed harware and cut metal I carn't say I had too much appreciation of their work, definietly too white collar for me, but I had a friend who worked for them on a big project and he seemed to like it. I get the impression that the place is demanding, like most management consultants, but that its tempered by some Gov./ civil service mentality.

PS make sure you fill in your timesheet correctly if you end up working there and Gov contracts run on timesheets and charge numbers.
