For Employees

 

Our People

/How We Do

We are committed to being the best employer in the Federal Contracting community by offering each of our employees the opportunity to grow, where other companies try to limit them into just one role. No employee of IC-1 will ever be limited to just one position. We have a clear model to offer every employee progression in every aspect of their lives.

Orientation at IC-1

Orientation is the first opportunity for employees to learn about our company, our customers and our business. Your not just a butt-in-a-seat, contractor – you’re part of this company! At orientation, employees sit with our internal staff to discuss in detail how to leverage IC-1 to hit your professional, and personal goals. We discuss systems, processes, customers and set our people up for success.

Partner vs. Employee

IC-1 Solutions innovative and trail-blazing employee profit sharing program allows our Engineers to participate in business development activities, and the compensation plans associated with them! At IC-1 Solutions Orientation, we empower our staff with all the resources they need to contribute to company growth. If any Engineers take action that leads to growth, we offer profit sharing. At IC-1 Solutions, we’ll never limit our employees professional and financial growth – we’ll encourage it.

Constant Engagement

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. Engineers are closest to the customers, closest to the mission and closest to the solution, so we empower our employees to speak up… and we listen! We have a trail- blazing IRAD program that incentivizes Engineers to contribute to Independent Research and Development projects.

A Real Company

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. IC-1 holds in-person events, every month. We’re known for renting out entire theaters for IC-1 Solutions-only showings of new Star Wars premiers, or perhaps bringing in scientist from DARPA to give lectures on the newest technologies? Regardless of the format, we host an event, every month.

Never Print, Scan or Fax a company document, ever again

How could you trust a company to build your IT applications when they’re still using a fax machine that was created in 1924? It’s the 21st century, we use the CLOUD for that stuff now.***

Benefits

Medical / Dental / Vision:

We selected top ranking PPO and HMO plans through CareFirst, Blue Cross Blue Shield. The best part is, it costs you nothing! IC-1 pays 100% of the premiums and deductibles for employees and families. We want our employees to be able to focus on the mission, not deductibles and premiums.

401K Contribution:

Immediately vested 6%, dollar for dollar match. Upfront and straight-forward, always. No wait time, no hidden terms and conditions.

PTO:

Year one 3 weeks, year two 4 weeks, year three and beyond 5 weeks. You only get one life – work yourself into a place where you can really enjoy it. Exceptions available for senior hires.

Federal Holidays:

10 paid. You may float any holiday within the same month unless you are unable to access your work location due to closure.

Short Term / Long Term Disability Insurance:

IC-1 Solutions has ST and LT disability that covers our staff for up to 60% of their income for disabilities that cause them to miss work. This is a 100% employer-paid benefit, and costs our employees nothing.

Training:

5K a year for certifications, tuition and conferences. Excellence is demanded, so growth is supported.

ICY-Labs:

IC-1 Solutions has developed a proprietary, industry-leading training lab, only available to IC-1 Solutions employees.  Unlike industry-standard “online training”, we do not offer online videos and PowerPoint slides! ICY-Labs is a virtual “lab” environment, where we take our employees through highly-technical, hands-on labs.  We currently have labs in Cloud Engineering and Cyber Engineering. This is available for no cost, to IC-1 Solutions employees.

Referral Program:

IC-1 Solutions offers a $5,000 bonus if you refer other technical professionals to our company. Unlike most companies who pay half at 90 days and half at 180 days, IC-1 Solutions pays the entire $5,000 immediately after the employee start work! We trust our interview process to only hire the best!

IRAD Profit Sharing:

The best product ideas come from our Engineers. Instead of ignoring our Engineers, like many companies do, IC-1 Solutions listens! We have a trail- blazing IRAD program that incentivizes Engineers to contribute to Independent Research and Development projects.

Business Development Profit Sharing:

At IC-1 Solutions, we recognize that there are too many overpaid, “BD people” in our industry.  Instead of wasting overhead dollars on overpriced salespeople, we cut out the middle-men and empower our Engineers to help us grow.  At IC-1 Solutions we empower our staff with all the resources they need to contribute to company growth. If any Engineers take action that leads to growth, we offer profit sharing. At IC-1 Solutions, we’ll never limit our employees professional and financial growth – we’ll encourage it.

Meetups:

IC-1 Solutions hosts regular meetups that are “invite only”! How would you like to see the newest Star Wars or Avatar movies, weeks before they are released? How about a private question/answer session with world-renowned tech leaders? By joining IC-1 Solutions, you are immediately on the A-list, and get special access to the events and meetups we host.

Health and Wellness Budget:

IC-1 Solutions believes the mind/body relationship should be respected, therefore you will receive $500.00 a year for ergonomic chairs, gym memberships, or other things that keep you as healthy as possible
