    I have been working at ICF full-time


    This company has integrity and I've find that very refreshing. Everyone at the office is highly skilled and contributes to projects at hand. The organizational structure is not really hierarchal at all, which is great because employees feel valued at all levels. No ego-trips here.


    It's a somewhat big organization, so certain tasks can feel bureaucratic. This can be overcome though with pre-planning and knowledge of the processes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    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.
