I have been working at ICF International full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

For a publically traded company, amazingly focused on work that matters; get to work with folks who are passionate about their work; expected to work hard but it is apprecitated

Cons

Communication is not always timely; need to be self motivated to move forward so some folks get overlooked; some managers who are too focused on control

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to all channels of communication and don't be bureaucratic; maintain open door policies and don't let control freaks get into high levels of management

    Current Employee - Associate in Fairfax, VA

    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.
