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

Pros

There is a lot of flexibility, offering a nice work-life balance

Cons

The organization is very top-heavy, no mentoring or honing of young talent, pay is low

Advice to Management

Don't waste your young talent and stop trying to grow too fast.

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

    Pros

    To describe ICF's top leadership, they possess a wonderful, forward-thinking, innovative vision and work hard to provide growth opportunities for junior staff.

    Cons

    Be sure to learn about the project you are interviewing for. Middle managers can be extremely territorial and can bog down innovation that comes through with new staff. Lots of process to navigate.

    Advice to Management

    You are currently working with Senior VPs to connect with junior level staff, which is the right start. But middle managers need to be brought into the conversation.
