I worked at ICF International full-time

Pros

40 hour work week, excellent compensation package, upward mobility, interesting work, open and transparent upper management

Cons

The culture depends on the manager, and I left when I got a new one who was not qualified. He is still there, successfully managing up (darned Peter Principle). For higher level positions, the bonus structure is top down, not bottom up (every year my team got screwed).

Advice to Management

Try to make more employees shareholders... overhaul the AIP system... it is currently an anti-incentive program.

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

    Pros

    Work with some of the best in the industry. Meaningful projects with a lot of variety. Very respectful of schedules, PTO, and time home. Good communication from upper and middle management.

    Cons

    Benefits have been slowly eroding under guise "getting ahead" of recent legislation. Desire to tie all costs back to clients rather than directly investing in infrastructure/people can lead to unnecessary frustration. Somebody billing $160 / hour 45-50 hours a week shouldn't have to wait weeks for an $80 software license to make their jobs easier.

    Advice to Management

    To keep top talent, make their lives at home easy.


  2. ICF = 5 stars. But it's all dependent on the project(s) you are working on.

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

    Pros

    To describe ICF's top leadership, they possess a wonderful, forward-thinking, innovative vision and work hard to provide growth opportunities for junior staff.

    Cons

    Be sure to learn about the project you are interviewing for. Middle managers can be extremely territorial and can bog down innovation that comes through with new staff. Lots of process to navigate.

    Advice to Management

    You are currently working with Senior VPs to connect with junior level staff, which is the right start. But middle managers need to be brought into the conversation.
