    I have been working at ICF full-time

    Pros

    This company has integrity and I've find that very refreshing. Everyone at the office is highly skilled and contributes to projects at hand. The organizational structure is not really hierarchal at all, which is great because employees feel valued at all levels. No ego-trips here.

    Cons

    It's a somewhat big organization, so certain tasks can feel bureaucratic. This can be overcome though with pre-planning and knowledge of the processes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Everyone is extremely helpful and willing to work together to solve problems or help answer questions. Whenever I'm lost, someone is eager to help me find my way. I love the atmosphere here, and the workplace itself is incredible.

    I have been working at ICF part-time

    Pros

    Flexible commitment
    High quality colleagues
    HR is very well dialed in. Exceptionally easy to work with. To the extent a company telegraphs how it treats its employees through the on-boarding process, ICF is the best I have worked for.

    Cons

    I don't really have any cons.

    Everyone is very friendly and down to earth, laid back atmosphere despite the seriousness of the work.

    Pros

    I'm able to remote in cases of emergency. The Paid Time Off increments weekly, so I always have some just in case of an emergency.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    I have been working at ICF as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Human resources ensures on-boarding is smooth and informative, best experience I've had in my professional career (efforts led by Leslie Taylor and David Parrish). Company has a robust internal communication plan to keep employees engaged, informed and aware of company happenings.

    Cons

    Hard to build relationships with team members when working remotely but that's the challenge of consulting, not a product of company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make employee internal communications at the forefront of business practices.
