Current Employee - Associate in Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD
Current Employee - Associate in Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD

I have been working at ICF International full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Decent salary for starting position
Decent benefits (dental, health)
Never had to bring work home

Cons

Promotions are based on employee age, not on employee merit or skill
No sick leave
Employees that are stationed at contractor sites are at the mercy of the stakeholder's facilities (office space, parking, transit) and can get abysmal at times, with the company unable to do anything about it.
Employees that aren't at the Fairfax VA location (HQ) aren't part of the ICF "culture"

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remove PTO and bring back sick leave
Make working at ICF feel more like everyone working at a single company, not a confederation of companies that were merged together to create ICF

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO
