    I worked at ICF International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent salary and benefits
    Focus on developing recent grads
    Good people (in my division)

    Cons

    Many parts don't value technical work highly
    Large company means you (individually) matter little to them
    ICF is used to managing contracts, so technical work is often contracted out even when there is capacity in-house

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ICF has recently acquired a number of companies, including Kalibre, MACRO International, and others. The purpose for this is reportedly to increase technical capacity, but the organization within ICF is still not utilizing this capacity effectively. Working with different groups is often difficult.

    Pros

    Some interesting work, benefits are good.

    Cons

    Company doesn't practice what they preach. Despite their stated "organic growth" the company grows through acquisition which doesn't go so well. Regional leaders and office managers have no clue about their own employees and spend most of their time working on org charts to justify their existence. The corporate management seems to be on a different planet and don't communicate anything to the staff. This company is struggling to identify itself amongst many other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a closer look at regional and office managers and make sure that you ask them why they are constantly shuffling the deck and making arbitrary decisions about staffing.
