    I have been working at ICF part-time

    Pros

    ICF is a premier consulting organization that values people, is committed to sustainability, fairness, and work-life balance. The company's projects create opportunities to work on the leading challenges of our day.

    Cons

    Consulting requires a tolerance for uncertainty, a flexible and can-do attitude, and a resilient and persistent work ethic. But ICF provides one of the more stable and sane work environments for consultants to grow and thrive in.

    I worked at ICF full-time

    Pros

    The work can be interesting... sometimes.

    Cons

    Your manager has pretty much no real control to do anything for you. The salaries are pretty low and the raises are very poor.

    Advice to Management

    They are a big ship and the captain long ago decided that he would abandon his post and follow behind flawed corporate double talk. The company does nothing original, as it is too scared of any movement in the stock price to see that they are just sustaining a dying corpse rather than innovating in any way. They have a lot of talented people on the staff who want to shake up the way they do things making the company and their services better and more relevant to their client base. Instead they are damn near stealing the tax payers money to provide meaningless and pedantic advice to misguided and frivolous clients.

    Pros

    Thursday afternoon meetings with beer.

    Cons

    Thursday afternoon meetings listening to weak & cocky ‘leadership’ sell themselves while talent and clients disappear around them.

    Advice to Management

    Kids cost money. You are nursing ugly kids.
