    Pros

    It is truly a tight family oriented company! Growth potential within is outstanding if you are willing to work harder than the average Joe. Great co-workers and benefits. Executive staff is wonderful, one of the only places I've worked where the CEO and VP's will know your name and say hello.

    Cons

    Underpaid in current marketplace and high volume

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more staff to share the load as to keep "quality" employees happy and therefore improve accuracy and customer service.

    I have been working at Chenega Corporation full-time

    Pros

    I can honestly say, if my co-workers and management team stays, i will be here for the long haul! They encourage to balance work with family. Generous time off. No drama where i am. And i feel appreciated all the time, regardles of how big or small the task is. Benefits are fat.

    Cons

    Communication and workflow within the corporation as a whole. Not with my direct coworkers, but one department with another. In my opinion, it really isnt the company itself, but the employees therein, on every level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Yearly reviews. Doesnt have to be all numbered and dotting the "i"'s, but rather a specific time set aside to discuss how you are doing. Getting feeback and giving. And of course the possibilty of a raise.

    I have been working at Chenega Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The teamwork is amazing, even across 6 time zones. There's always something new to learn in the government contracting environment. Excellent guidance from superiors. Generous time off and some jobs can work offsite from the office!

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    I have been working at Chenega Corporation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I've been with Chenega for awhile and i've seen the company change quite a bit during that time. I truly believe the company cares about its employees and strives to make it a better place. The management team provides positive feedback and is always looking at employees for new growth and new positions. I think the open door policy with management helps nurture the culture that has developed within the company.

    I think the benefits provided by the company - vacation, health benefits, etc are top notch. They also provide numerous training opportunities and not only encourage personal growth but also professional growth.

    Cons

    From what i've seen, the pay is one of the biggest challenges. It's common in the marketplace to receive annual reviews and I don't see that happening here, even though our competitors are doing it. I think this is something that should be looked at by the management team, because I feel some people are leaving for this reason.

    I have been working at Chenega Corporation full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Skilled support staff, spot on training and on-boarding. Maintains excellent business model designed to leverage small business status while providing large business depth and experience. Opportunities abound for growth, professional development and advancement. Monthly team building initiatives recognizing excellence, birthdays and anniversaries fosters a wholesome family style atmosphere.

    Cons

    Compensation package is average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To continue to retain high quality personnel and address concerns with high turn-over, consider rewarding longevity through increased compensation benefits and pay.

    I worked at Chenega Corporation

    Pros

    People that I worked with were great.. Internal management support was great!

    Cons

    Salaries are not good. Unless you are connected within you will not get promoted or receive raises. External management would always add extra processes that did not but justify them having a job and there is no communication down to the Subsidiary level. Would not recommend this company!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at people for their potential not how they are connected within the friends of higher ups. Compensate the employees that keep that company going.
