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

Pros

People are easy to work with, good work-life balance, lots of different areas to gain experience in, telecommuting

Cons

Zero office culture, no career advancement opportunities (esp. for junior staff), major emphasis on "billable hours," very little in the way of training/career development, pay is relatively low....basically, senior management doesn't care about their workers enough to motivate them to do good work.

Advice to Management

Train your junior staff and make an effort to keep them there! (And at very least, by the time you don't want them anymore they'll have the skills to get hired elsewhere...)

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

    Pros

    The company does let you have a work life balance, but only if you consistently defend it.
    Otherwise I have little else positive to say about my time at ICF.

    Cons

    Treats employees like individual piggy banks via a consistent delay in paying salaries, expenses, and benefits even breaking with their own policies to achieve incremental float.
    Poor leadership
    Uninspiring leadership
    Poor office culture

    Advice to Management

    File for Chapter 7 tonight.

    "Great place to work"

    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.
