Pros

Its a large company, with many different areas of activity, highly qualified expertise and a decent reputation. They are active in sustainability, environmental issues, and energy, all of which are important job growth areas.

Cons

The company has grown very quickly, has no soul, and is primarily concerned about the bottom line, even at the expense of its core asset - its employees - particularly as a consulting firm.

Advice to Management

Tune your attention to creating value within the firm, as well as for clients. Too many mid-level and senior staff are leaving the company because they don't feel valued,

    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 Management

    Pay more attention/ invest more in your junior staff.
