    Pros

    Pay is descent/average. Building is great. Coworkers are nice.

    Cons

    Middle to upper management is horrible and seems to be so out of touch. I don't think they care a bit about their employees. Junior staff are treated like they are a dime a dozen. Benefits keep being reduced. Long standing contracts are disappearing but that isn't a surprise since the focus is on money and not so much quality of work. Unethical acts from some senior managers seems to be tolerated. Some departments are much much much worse than others so good luck. May you land in the right one.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and treat people with respect. It is not just about what is on the website, on paper or comes out of your mouth. It is about if or if not you live up to what you advertise to employees.

    Pros

    interesting work, great people, basic corporate amenities.

    Cons

    We are a very profitable division, but after ICF took over things keep just getting worse and worse. The company continually cuts back on benefits and office space, limits raises, to the point where it's drained morale and made it harder to effectively do our jobs. Rather than allowing us to thrive, ICF has become an impediment to our efficiency and effectiveness.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be penny wise and pound foolish. Treat employees with respect and you will see your projects thrive and expand. Cut benefits, limit freedom and you will slowly erode your ability to stay on top and get the profitable contracts you so vigorously compete for.
