I have been working at ICF as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Large company with various opportunities. Not difficult to get hired.

Cons

Feel like a temp working here. Middle management is untrained, sleazy and manipulative. Employees are not at all valued. Doing the bare minimum seems to be the status quo. Morale is non-existent. Contract is a sinking ship with no direction.

Advice to Management

Train middle management and supervise them to encourage ethical behavior. Value employee feedback.

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

    Pros

    there are many opportunities to learn new skills, and your power to learn is what they are hiring.

    Cons

    The work you will have to do will be mundane and possibly very dry. Many complain of being overworked and underpaid.

    I worked at ICF part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Potential for being a company that would be wonderful to work for ... if only they practiced what they preach. But, they don't.

    Cons

    The company management is deceptive at best, it's very hard to say that they are worthy of the pats on the back that they give themselves. What started out as a great place to work for, ended up as a path strewn by rotten meat and along they way it began to stink more and more. Management was lazy and deceptive. Rarely do they answer questions or provide guidance, and professional development is (although stated as being an important perk when the job is initially offered) is reserved for their own padded pockets. The average Joe (and Jane) is useless to them and they are treated below par. I have worked in far lesser professionally-inflated environents than ICF, have have found the managers to be far greater than these folks. While it may be attractive initially to take on a job at ICF, I would continue to keep an eye out for something better (and an eye on your ICF manager to make sure they are not stabbing in the back).

    Advice to Management

    Develop a sense of honesty and do what you are paid to do -- and that shouldn't include stabbing employees in the back.
