    I have been working at ICF full-time

    Pros

    I was recently hired at ICF. I was previously located overseas, so the whole process was done remotely. ICF was extremely responsive, helpful and professional with the entire hiring process. Great experience so far!

  5. "Great first day promising many great days ahead"

    I have been working at ICF full-time

    Pros

    The recruiting and onboarding process have been a refreshing personal experience. The first day suggests all the benefits of a large company with the personal feel of a small company. Everyone seems focused on doing what is right, while respecting wise corporate governance.

    The learning and development opportunities provide high quality options from brands I trust.

    The benefits include healthcare options with low monthly premiums and generous time off for new hires with a time off reserve bank.

    The technology and facilities seem to provide a good balance for local and remote workers.

    In the end though, it is the people. Most companies talk about the people. ICF seems to know how to hire and nurture people. I feel lucky to be here.

    Cons

    Forced to write one... but can't think of one.

    love that we have both commercial and defense clients and there are lot of long term employees who have stayed w/ the company when they could have gone elsewhere to make more $
