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

Pros

I worked on a team project for the two and a half years I was there. Everyone assigned to the project was professional and we worked well together. It was a great experience.

Cons

During the last six months of the contract, we were told to "hang in there" until the end of the project because other work was available for us upon completion of the contract. A few of us did remain, others found employment elsewhere. I received my layoff notice one week before the contract end date. If other work is not available, don't lie and say it is. Yes, it's a for-profit business but that's no reason for deceit.

Advice to Management

Don't lie. You had a great group of employees who worked hard and impressed the clients. If there isn't other work available, do not say there is. We have personal responsibilities and families to support.

    I worked at ICF full-time

    Pros

    As a large multinational organization, there are (theoretically) opportunities to work in multiple locations and still stay with the company.

    Cons

    Management was a joke and was more concerned with themselves that with please the client. The matrixed organization did not work. The manager I had played some massive favorites and was all about herself.

    Advice to Management

    Give program managers realistic utilization goals. A manager cannot be expected to bill 100% of the time and do CE and manager duties outside of that 100% utilization.
