    I have been working at ICF International full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The benefits at ICF are reasonable.The work environment is good. The health insurance coverage is good. The facilities are nice. Managers are great.

    Cons

    Inconsistency in departments is common in many areas.

    My department does not allow working from home except in bad weather. Allowing employees to work regularly from home even 1-2 days a week provides better work-life balance and flexibility. Some departments allow a greater ability to work from home from a few days a week to every day. It seems to be up to the department head. In today's world almost all companies allow telecommuting.

    I think PTO is on the low side - employees should have a few additional PTO days per year than what is given. Since telecommuting is not allowed in my department, there should be more PTO allotted so employees can take care of personal appointments.

    There is no comp time - at least that I am aware of. Salaried staff often work many extra hours - especially in the busy months - and do not get compensated.

    Staff should have offices instead of cubicles. It is very distracting to be in cubicles - especially when working on a special project that needs concentration. Only select staff have offices.

    Low annual increases. A 2% increase is much smaller to a lower paid person than a higher paid person. There seems to be a standard increase every year that is not reflective of performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow greater opportunity in working from home, give larger salary increases for excellent performance, and solicit more feedback from lower staff.
