Public companies

11. Booz Allen Hamilton

The consulting firm early in the year cut its workforce by more than 500 employees — a 2 percent cut to its total workforce. However, company officials said they took a larger slice in its senior and middle management and internal operations ranks. The company, which consults for government agencies as well as commercial firms, also formally opened its new Abu Dhabi office, part of a push to expand its work in the region.

Trivia

Booz Allen has a “frozen suit” on display in one of its lobbies, in honor of a senior leader so dedicated to clients that he wore to an important meeting a suit that had accidentally gotten wet and then literally froze rather than dried as expected.
