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

Pros

Decent salary and benefits
Focus on developing recent grads
Good people (in my division)

Cons

Many parts don't value technical work highly
Large company means you (individually) matter little to them
ICF is used to managing contracts, so technical work is often contracted out even when there is capacity in-house

Advice to Management

ICF has recently acquired a number of companies, including Kalibre, MACRO International, and others. The purpose for this is reportedly to increase technical capacity, but the organization within ICF is still not utilizing this capacity effectively. Working with different groups is often difficult.

    Pros

    Ethical people with a high level of pride in their work. Fast-paced and still innovative despite having 4500 employees. Making a difference in the world. Good access to experts within the company.

    Cons

    Not too much opportunity to relocate internationally but getting there with some new offices. Need to tell the stories of the staff more often so people who are new realise the community they are part of- the size means it's pssible to be siloed.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the halls and talk to the more junior staff more often.
