    I have been working at ICF full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    interesting work, great people, basic corporate amenities.

    Cons

    We are a very profitable division, but after ICF took over things keep just getting worse and worse. The company continually cuts back on benefits and office space, limits raises, to the point where it's drained morale and made it harder to effectively do our jobs. Rather than allowing us to thrive, ICF has become an impediment to our efficiency and effectiveness.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be penny wise and pound foolish. Treat employees with respect and you will see your projects thrive and expand. Cut benefits, limit freedom and you will slowly erode your ability to stay on top and get the profitable contracts you so vigorously compete for.

    Pros

    The firm has many federal contracts and tends to have stable jobs. The work environment is generally friendly especially for new graduates.

    Cons

    It is a consulting firm that is still evolving. The career trajectories tend to vary by division and team. Its hard to gauge the teams sometimes before you begin working with them.

    Advice to Management

    Align the practices and hold your business development leads responsible for results.
