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

Pros

Autonomy
Ownership of projects
Get tons of experience
Lots of flexibility

Great for building experience and knowledge to start your career. Think of this place as your cocoon. All the growth is internal and you have to do it yourself.

Cons

With autonomy comes endless responsibilities, which you are not compensated for
Long hours - 50+ a week = no work life balance
Promotion is based on longevity with company and not experience and results
Pay raise is ONLY a 3% increase (and that's if you're at the top of your job)
Oh... Did I say pay is terrible? Well so are the benefits.

If you want to break you back and gain tons of weight from stress, not get properly compensated, and experience the impact of turnovers... But need the autonomy to work and build beyond the parameters of your position, then this is the place for you.

Advice to Management

Be more present.

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

    Pros

    Company culture is supportive of work/life balance with flexible work hours and teleworking arrangements; opportunities to work on a wide variety of projects in both public and private sector

    Cons

    Compensation is lower than competition; bonus program only benefits senior leadership, not the rank and file; growth opportunities limited

    Advice to Management

    Develop and share the strategic vision for the company, including how that vision will be achieved
