Current Employee - Acquisition Specialist in Washington, DC

I have been working at ICF International as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Very good work-life balance is good..room for growth is available. Senior management has an open door policy which makes me comfortable in voicing my concerns and/or issues.

Cons

If you're permanetly supporting a client on site, it makes it difficult to build outside relationships with other co-workers at corporate. Need more time to interact and build relationships in order to explore other internal opportunities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Professional growth needs to be alloted for every employee regardless of whether you work at the client site or other ICF offices..

    Run away if you are offered an on-site opportunity at a government client.

    I worked at ICF International full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    None. This is just a horrible employer where a large part of their business is augmenting the staff of the government with positions nobody wants for long.

    Cons

    ICF government services business model means they are powerless to improve your client-site situation (even if it's a simple matter of office work-space). All they try to get you to do is believe the lies they push on the client as well as work both ends against the middle. It's a real downward spiral for ICF because they can rarely keep higher-educated people at the government client sites. If you are in government, in some cases all you need is time on the job and a heartbeat to take on management responsibilities (and they love to throw their weight around with contractors). ICF is right behind them. The benefit to you is that you get TWO boneheads to work for! If you like both a day-to-day client bonehead to work for as well as a useless ICF "manager," then this is the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a spine and figure out how to properly deal with the bad govie apples that your ICF employees have to work for or you will keep that revolving door spinning.

    ICF has lost its loyalty to its loyal hardworking employees.

    I have been working at ICF International full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with

    Cons

    No career growth opportunity within the company. The management is more focused on bringing in expertise from outside than looking into what already exists within the company. Sometimes friends and neighbors are hired who block the growth of existing employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into maintaining clients' trust by trusting the growth in your loyal employees.
