I have been working at ICF International full-time (more than a year)

Pros

My managers have always been very flexible in terms of working from home and alternate work schedules when needed. I don't feel overworked at ICF, and think they strike a good work/life balance. Have gotten the chance to cultivate a wide set of skills through my work.

Cons

For junior level staff, project work is often assigned based on who has availability and not who has the skills matched to that project. This can be a disincentive to do good work on projects that you don't like, since you will get stuck on them and not be able to move on to projects you would rather be on.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay more attention/ invest more in your junior staff.

    Pros

    Nice building
    Benefits are ok
    Most Supervisor level employees & below are pretty down-to-earth

    Cons

    Micro-management
    Condescending demeanor from management
    INCONSISTENT
    ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE COMMUNICATION SKILLS
    Attack first, ask questions later

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your people better - people work for people!
    It's absolutely shocking how poorly we are treated. We are spoken to like we are dirt beneath the managers' feet. The overall culture is horrid and it's sad that the managers, director, and VP are oblivious to the fact that people are miserable. But then again, it's all about outside appearance, right?

    Pros

    No Pros that I can see to working at ICF.

    Cons

    No recognition of value of employees, strict contracting, underpaid. They had to be forced by the city to give sick days in Seattle. No ethics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management's jobs seem to be towing the line and covering mistakes. Who are you fooling?
