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

Pros

Interesting projects with high profile clients.

Cons

While racking up overtime to complete insane deadlines on an understaffed project you end up with very little in rewards. Bonuses for your hard work are almost non existent at the lower employee levels. Career advice is also extremely sparse for lower level employees.

    Pros

    The co-workers are good people, and fun to get to know. The break room has free Starbucks coffee and really fancy vending machines.

    Cons

    Nothing about this job was what I expected- in a bad way. The hours, pay, and benefits (that is, the lack thereof) are downright exploitative. You will work every single holiday except Thanksgiving and Christmas. The benefits listed on the website are for managers, not agents in the operations center.

    Advice to Management

    Just because the people in the area are desperate for a job doesn't mean you should exploit them.

    Pros

    Decent salaries, some nice people

    Cons

    Just cut back benefits; 10 days of sick leave reduced to 3 days of additional leave. No mobility. Grows by too-rapid acquisition, without integrating the people in the acquired companies, leaving dangling branches outside core competency. Emphasis on growth for growth's sake, at an unsustainable rate. No training opportunities. No test equipment. Internal IT very, very poor.

    Advice to Management

    Growth for growth's sake is not sustainable.
