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

Pros

On-job training through projects and formal certification ICF may facilitate; smart, engaged coworkers; opportunity to work on various projects.

Cons

Everyone is overworked. Company focuses on profits and growth (through acquisition -- not organic, as they talk about) at the expense of quality. Entry-level employees are vastly underpaid and expected to leave in a few years. Lateral moves are difficult. Bonuses are non-existent to laughably small.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in young employees so they become good managers if they choose to stay.

    Pros

    there are many opportunities to learn new skills, and your power to learn is what they are hiring.

    I have been working at ICF International as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Large company with various opportunities. Not difficult to get hired.

    Cons

    Feel like a temp working here. Middle management is untrained, sleazy and manipulative. Employees are not at all valued. Doing the bare minimum seems to be the status quo. Morale is non-existent. Contract is a sinking ship with no direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train middle management and supervise them to encourage ethical behavior. Value employee feedback.
