IC-1 Solutions was founded on the vision to break this cycle.
IC-1 Solutions is a company that TRULY puts it’s people first – employees and customers.
IC-1 Solutions’ vision is to offer true innovation and world-class service to the Federal Government, to improve our nation and our communities. Too many companies these days are “pandering”: Side-stepping their core capabilities, vision and values to earn revenue. At IC-1 we don’t have to compete for “low-bid” or “butts in seats” contracts – we only do the most advanced work. IC-1 is the “Special Forces” of federal contracting – and when IC-1 Solutions is on the job, our customers see the difference. We don’t settle for “Acceptable” – we deliver “Excellent”. It’s not luck, it’s our process.
IC-1 Solutions intentionally does not have an extensive board of directors to show profits to – instead, we have the freedom to invest that back into our people – and that’s exactly what we do.
FULLY EMPOWERED ENGINEERS
Many companies in the Federal Contracting community don’t really listen to the Engineers – they just shove them in a desk, and bill the government. At IC-1 Solutions, we’ve established a culture and environment where building, testing, and releasing software can happen more rapidly and reliably. Our Management team smashes-through the normal obstacles, politics and stovepipes that have become standard in Federal Contracting. Everything we do is designed to empower our top engineers to be as creative, innovative and productive as possible. IC-1 Solutions also offers an innovative and trail-blazing IRAD program to rapidly turn our Engineers’ ideas into Solutions.
At IC-1, we have systems and processes in place to ensure our Engineers get world-class engagement and development. We have developed two proprietary tools to support this vision: ICY-Labs, a custom, in-house training lab that focuses on the most advanced and sought-after technologies in the Industry, and IC-Delivery Pro a state of the art tool that eliminates the broken “Annual Performance Review” process, and offers a “Fluid Feedback” process to ensure we foster a culture of excellence, not redundant wastes of manpower.
A REAL COMPANY
IC-1 holds in-person events, every month. We host industry events, IC-1 Solutions team-building events, and strategy sessions with our Engineers. Regardless of the format, we host employee events every month to bring our company together. This is the most effective way to communicate our objectives, and allow employees to “speak-up” about ways to innovate. Bringing everyone together is a lost-art of real team-work, and it’s a powerful tool in building a truly amazing place to work.
Take Care of People
Unlike many companies, where it’s all about “the bottom line”, IC-1 believes in working together to help each other grow personally and professionally. We strive to nurture an environment where every employee is empowered and appreciated. If it comes down to losing a customer, losing an employee, or losing profit - that’s an easy choice for us - we put our people first. Period.
Be Excellent at What You Do
If you are going to achieve excellence in large matters, you must develop the habit in little matters. At IC-1 Solutions, excellence is a prevailing attitude, no matter how small or big the task.
The only way to work towards a common goal is to have transparency across the organization, so we insist on talking about ways to continually improve. We encourage candid communication in all areas of the company– even if it’s uncomfortable.
Don’t Make Excuses
Improvise, adapt and get the job done. Never walk away until the job is done; ALWAYS deliver.
