      Pros

      Nice office, nice local office staff, flexible for appointments snow days etc. Nice diversity of staff

      Cons

      Whilst I was in the company there were some ambitious people who would cause conflict and use you as a stepping stone for their career. It made the atmosphere of working uncomfortable. ICON is a company driven by it's clients. Everything is great when things go right, but when they go wrong it was a blame culture whilst I was there.
