"Great place to work"

Star Star Star Star Star

Pros

Great place to work. The salaries are good for public health employees. Excellent opportunities for advancement. Promotes professional development and going to conferences.

Cons

There were not many. There were cliques and favorites in upper management. The hours are long when the deadlines are tight. Proposal season is utter chaos.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    For the most part like the people I work with.

    Cons

    Poor management, no leadership, collaborative environment leads to lack of direction, poor communication, few rewards for working hard and delivering exemplary results. Known in the industry to be cheap in terms of pay.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house, hire a CMO and send your leadership teams to real leadership training. Ensure high performers are rewarded so that they don't leave.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Solid presence in many areas of government consulting; particular strengths in energy and environment. Diverse and skilled staff. Still small enough to be relatively agile.

    Cons

    Compensation is on the low side. Practices are managed separately without adequate cross-departmental collaboration, which really hurts ability to go after the increasingly complex contracts that government agencies are putting out. Staff are expected to do the heavy lifting on business development without adequate resources. Frequent business acquisitions mean often incompatible systems and culture conflicts.

    Advice to Management

    Empower lower-level staff to take leadership roles commensurate with their talents and abilities.
