    Underpayed for high cost of living in Alaska

    Petroleum Engineer (Former Employee) Anchorage, AK

    ProsHaving 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.

    ConsAlaska 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 Senior ManagementPay your employees better, offer more time off do to isolated location.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    challenging field work and good design tools

    Piping Designer (Former Employee)

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

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

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

    Great Experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWorking in Alaska is a great experience for any young professional in the oil and gas business. You get a hands-on experience working with virtually every aspect of the upstream business. The BU is a microcosm of a larger integrated E&P Company with the result that even entry-level employees get great access to Senior Management and experience, smart and talented managers.

    ConsAlaska is an isolated and expensive place to live. If you go into this for the long-term, make sure that your family can adjust to being this far away from the "lower-48."

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement does a great job of making CPAI a "family." The social events are great and access to Senior Management is something that is invaluable. Continue to embrace this culture and CPAI will be a great place for any young professional to work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
