Former Employee - Research Analyst in Calverton, MD
Former Employee - Research Analyst in Calverton, MD

I worked at ICF International full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Decent salary and benefits
Focus on developing recent grads
Good people (in my division)

Cons

Many parts don't value technical work highly
Large company means you (individually) matter little to them
ICF is used to managing contracts, so technical work is often contracted out even when there is capacity in-house

Advice to ManagementAdvice

ICF has recently acquired a number of companies, including Kalibre, MACRO International, and others. The purpose for this is reportedly to increase technical capacity, but the organization within ICF is still not utilizing this capacity effectively. Working with different groups is often difficult.

    Pros

    Some interesting work, benefits are good.

    Cons

    Company doesn't practice what they preach. Despite their stated "organic growth" the company grows through acquisition which doesn't go so well. Regional leaders and office managers have no clue about their own employees and spend most of their time working on org charts to justify their existence. The corporate management seems to be on a different planet and don't communicate anything to the staff. This company is struggling to identify itself amongst many other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a closer look at regional and office managers and make sure that you ask them why they are constantly shuffling the deck and making arbitrary decisions about staffing.
