    Pros

    Excellent organizational culture. Very safe work environment.

    Cons

    Everyone is a contractor. Company employees can be a little clique-y.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people. Long-term contractors (more than 12 months) are bad for morale and bad for business.

    Pros

    They hire top talent, the job pays very well and there are opportunities for promotions.

    Cons

    Old-er building, lots of people work in cubicles, work-life balance is not very good. Also, corporate culture slows the progress - sometimes it's hard to get things done because you're waiting for a week on a person in Oklahoma to get back to you.

    Advice to Management

    Too many middle management positions.

    Pros

    Having an office with a nice view compared to cubicle life makes a difference. The option to take team building trips and the company giving early leave days on beautiful summer days was nice.

    Cons

    Alaska is extremely cold 6 months out of the year. Cost of living, although state tax tree, doesn't make up for shipping costs for EVERYTHING. Cost if living compensation doesn't accurately justify. Was underpaid for years of experience.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees better, offer more time off do to isolated location.

    Pros

    rotating shift assignment (2 on 2 off) allows more contiguous time on to complete assignments, while having blocks of time off for travel & family.

    Cons

    remote site assignments can be hazardous and support/guidance from leads is minimal.

    Advice to Management

    encourage the use of laser scanning, photogrammetry and 3D modeling within the design department in order to accurately depict mechanicals and improve communication between disciplines.
