Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

They are a well-oiled machine and you will learn a great deal. Effective in winning contracts especially in the Energy sector. Most of my colleagues were very intelligent and care about the quality of their work.

Cons

poor work-life balance. Upper management does not like the military---although they covet DoD contracts. Office culture - great deal of competition over who will get credit for contracts and profits. This discourages individuals from working together across lines of business within he company. Some dishonest tactics used as a result.

    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.
