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

Pros

Good place to work. Can a learn a lot quickly if interested, since it is a diversified consulting company. Recent changes in management are positive and a step in the right direction.

Cons

Future growth is unclear. Very high fixed cost base which makes it somewhat uncompetitive against more "nimble" consulting companies. Still can do a better job of making it easy to switch between divisions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reduce fixed costs. Promote different models of cost-competitive consulting.

    Pros

    Forward thinking. If you want to work hard and learn a lot this may be the place for you.

    Cons

    Management will work their employees very hard, but does not reward efforts. No room for upward mobility.

    I worked at ICF International full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - flexible policies aimed at allowing work-life balance
     - many different divisions doing many different kinds of things
     - good people
     - everyone is expected to self-manage in a matrixed environment, which gives considerable room for autonomy and personal growth

    Cons

    - everyone is expected to self-manage in a matrixed environment, which can sometimes be confusing and inefficient
     - vaguely soulless
     - top performers usually leave within 2 years
     - frankly-- its a good, solid company doing good, mid-level consulting work, mostly government contracts. Its not top level, and its not really focused on anything in particular, so you can't really expect it to have a distinctive character or flavor. Its a good company, but a grey company.
