Pros – Everything! Seriously, I have yet to meet anyone that has a better job with better pay and perks in Alaska than Alyeska. They are very competitive for employees and it shows. The best part is the people are truly awesome. You don't have co-workers here, you have life-long friends. I've worked for a lot of companies and organizations and this is bar-none the best. You have a great work-life balance with a lot of vacation and paid time off. Benefits are pretty good compared to most other companies in Alaska. There is more and more focus on proffessional development and you are given many opportunities to learn new skills and apply them. They also have a great Education Reimbursement program that really helps you get more degree's and professional education.
Cons – Very limited opportunities to move up. With such a great retention rate, there are not many opportunities to move up and when they do open there is a lot of competition for them. Additionally, a lot of the management is placed based on technical expertise rather than the ability to lead, motivate, coach or mentor so you get some pretty negligible people in high places that can be difficult to work with.
Advice to Senior Management – Hire based on soft skills - technical expertise can be learned but it's difficult to teach a socially inept person to lead people.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Treats employees equally and fairly, and like professionals. Gives opportunity to learn new areas and move up .
Cons – Covers a large geographical area thus involves lots of travel. This is a pro to some and a con to others.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Lower and middle managment is good to work with. Flexibility in PTO and work schedule is nice.
Cons – Upper management. Upwards communication is difficult. Office environment is very 1970's...lots of brown!
Advice to Senior Management – Listen better.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
