I have been working at ICF International full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The people are great to work with. There are a lot of smart, hard-working people at ICF, and some go out of their way to make you feel appreciated. It seems like the upper management really care about the employees, and they are very accessible.

Cons

There's no work-life balance. The motto has become "get it done" rather than "do it well." Despite getting stellar yearly reviews, I have not gotten a promotion in years.

    I worked at ICF International part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work from home opportunities made it attractive and served as the only plus that I could find in the position other than picking up a paycheck every two weeks. There were little to no incentives to get interested in any aspect of the position. I found precious little about the position and the management to categorize as a "pro" to the job other than LEAVING the job. And that was a definite PLUS! :)

    Cons

    Poor management; lack of communication; politics; mediocre pay; poor benefits; less than optimal chances of professional development; less than honest

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get manager training and learn how to manage; develop integrity; and learn what honesty is all about.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
