    Pros

    Arctic IT is a great organization comprised of energetic, talented, hard-working individuals who have a common drive to establish and maintain long-term relationships with clients by providing value to them. This is the place to be for those who genuinely prefer the “no two days are the same” environment – it’s dynamic, can be quite fast paced, and the team is constantly presented with new and exciting challenges. Many on the team appreciate the ability to travel frequently and love living in Anchorage – a great environment that’s family-friendly with lots of amenities.

    Cons

    For some, frequent travel can be a little burdensome. However, the management team tries to accommodate individual needs and requirements as much as possible. This isn’t the place for those who don’t like or cannot tolerate change and constantly having to learn and grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some additional investments could be made in the tools and systems used to support clients and their needs. Though there have been recent upgrades and expansions, work should continue in this area. There seem to be many manual processes that could be automated to help alleviate the administrative load on the team.

    Pros

    It's a good place to learn new technologies. They have decent benefits compared to other places.

    Cons

    It's a place that if you don't belong to the club you won't succeed. It's whom you know rather than merit. Some managers do not have the qualifications for them to be in those positions and they will make it difficult for you to succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to treat everyone equally otherwise they will be problems. Past employees are talked down on just because they chose not to be part of the club. Employees in the same position are treated differently with one doing whatever they want while the other is reprimanded of the doing the same thing.

    Pros

    You will get alot of frequent flier miles. Also, it definately beats being unemployed. I'm hoping it looks good on my resume. If you don't work in the Anchorage office you get pretty good office accomodations or work from home.

    Cons

    Pay is mediocre and pay increases are not based on your performance, but rather how little management thinks they can get away with based on their knowledge of your personal life (having a baby, wife working, et cetera). Working in the Anchorage office means crappy equipment (small monitors, horrible chairs) and probably having a cube, not an office. Benefits suck, there is no other way to put it, and have actually gotten worse over the last year or two as management has figured that the economy will prevent people from leaving. Promotion does not occur, management hires from outside the organization instead of developing existing personnel. Management has grown less and less involved with the company as it has grown.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in your people. I suspect there will be alot of turnover in the next year.

    Pros

    Arctic IT is filled with talented, driven, and flexible team members. It is a high performing team who gets along and collaborates well across geographic barriers. Things I love the most include the team energy and camaraderie, customer focus, and the ability to grow and take on more responsibilities.

    Cons

    If you can't think on your feet, are intimidated by working with people, or just dread change - this isn't the place for you.
