I loved my team and manager. They were amazing colleagues and I hope to remain friends with them for many years to come. I also really enjoyed the project work. Because of ICFs experience and breadth of subject matter expertise, it is easier to win proposals. There are also really good training opportunities.
There has been a slow erosion of benefits during my tenure at ICF. First they took away sick leave and replaced it with PTO for less total days. Then ICF replaced their very good PPO health insurance with a high-deductible HSA based healthcare option that didn't work well for my family. Further, ICF has a miserable maternity leave package for its size and position in the industry. It only pays for five weeks of leave at 60% of your salary and any other time you take (up to 12 weeks total) is unpaid leave. These issues alone have driven out many of the most talented young women in the firm. Finally, raises and bonuses are issued with an eye dropper. Only the staff that are willing to put in significant overtime are able to get ahead, which directly conflicts with ICF's promise of being a family-friendly company.
Advice to Management
Improve your maternity leave policy, provide better health care options, promote your junior-staff into management roles, and improve wages.
