Stepping Stone - Poor Company Culture & Advancement Opportunities
Analyst (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – July 20, 2018
ICI is the kind of place you use as a stepping stone early in your career. Otherwise, there is no opportunity for career advancement. It's made very clear that they do not value their employees; leadership communicated poorly - even with lower level management - and they don't make any effort to reward hard workers or offer advancement. The company culture and work environment is stagnant, rigid, and unappealing.
Offers benefits similar to other companies in the industry
Rigid, No opportunity for growth or advancement, Poor communication among management/leadership, Lack of processes/procedures
Current employee (Current Employee) – Greater Boston Area – May 31, 2018
My local team is great. About 60% navy veterans, due to the nature of the job, but inclusive of all. Depending on the project you are on, there is some travel involved but you can work with them on it. Mostly male, again due to the nature of the work (they have no problem hiring women, any applicant needs the right background). Corporate is very separate from local offices and seems to forget about us and the fact that not every contract they keep has the same terms. Flex hours are fantastic for work/life needs.
Great health and financial benefits offered, some PTO plus 10 paid holidays, flexible hours
Corporate doesn’t care about you, no PTO until the one year mark, when you get about five days, little to no advancement, and zero pay raises during contract negotiations which get drawn out forever
Professional environment focused on customer satisfaction.
Human Resources Recruiter (Current Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – December 13, 2017
Professional environment focused on customer satisfaction. Good office environment, benefits, and perks. Work hours flexible to accommodate personal business, as long as you clock minimum time (40 hours) within that week. I have enjoyed working here for the past year.
The overal experience has been very unique and suitable for anyone looking for a well balanced position and people to work with.

The customer is very laid back. As long as you get the job done, there is no need to be alarmed throughout the daily activities. Answering the telephone, updated calendars for officials, processing the billing sheets from each individual employee to the customer.
