Pros

Great for grads interested in environment, energy, and professional consulting related to those fields. In all other fields, ICF is still establishing its presence and this means less depth and less high profile work. Overall, each Division has its own work style, but company wide they want results. Yes- some will be expecting perfection, so be prepared to deliver, and have enough experience to avoid office politics.

Cons

Growth by adding new companies is making it hard to have a unified direction. Management is too top heavy which often causes them to stick around for too long; typically they don't retire.Also salaries are way below industry averages for associates and doesn't provide overtime pay.

Advice to Management

Cultivate leadership in associates not just Vice Presidents. Increase salary to match industry, provide a clear direction in each division.

    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 Management

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

  2. Overall not a bad company to work for

    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.
