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


    Coming to ICF was like a breath a fresh air. There is no micromanaging here. The culture here is much like a family so all opinions/suggestions want to be heard. ICF provides a laptop so the option to work from home is available. Also, the benefits start from day one. There is so much to do and learn in this company. Coffee, tea, pop corn, and oatmeal is always readily available.


    Currently due to construction of he highway, the commute can be a pain depending upon where you are commuting from.

    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at ICF (Fairfax, VA) in November 2016.


    The interview process I went through was fantastic. My recruiter was thorough and highly organized. I never had to worry where I stood or what was going on, she always updated me on whatever was going on. I also felt very prepared throughout my interview process thanks to my recruiter.
