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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Do not be wooed by the term "flexible work"

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

    Pros

    Initially the company offered unlimited potential, and I was thoroughly excited to be part of the team. Was given good pay with decent benefits - but a downgrade in benefits, and a promise of the company supporting training and development tracks, that can be reviewed, and a "buddy"/mentor system.

    Cons

    Sub-par office culture ; toxicity and alienation permeate, especially among the virtual employees, with management leading. Flexible work shouldn't come at the price of stagnation and alienation, or being forced to accept unprofessional treatment. HR can be very fickle and do not take any reports or complaints seriously. "Sweeping issues under the rug" is handled expertly. If you can handle extremely stressful situations, and thrive on being surrounded by stoic savants that put communication on the back-burner, this is the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should be trained in Leadership first and foremost, so they can maximize the talent pool. Getting projects out the door is a priority, but without a push to promote work-life balance and follow through with promises such as training and career development path Choices, you put employee lives in a balance. Managers who handle performance reviews should actually work with the employee on occasion. There is a major disconnect between management and employees - learning how to stay true to the business will be helpful in retaining employees.
