Good, solid company, though the quantity of tribal knowledge is a little unnerving

I have been working at Alaska USA full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Good benefits, a not-for-profit company, the levels of management aren't too thick.

Cons

It's the financial sector, which can have it's own problems. Growing, but going through some growing pains.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the lower end more in the loop on where the company is headed, the details of victories as well as of debacles. We're all in this boat together.

    I have been working at Alaska USA

    Pros

    Good Pay, Good opportunities for professional development. Great experience gained from working at the credit union. Great job to use as a stepping stone.

    Cons

    micro management, politics, lack of following protocol and procedures which causes glitches in day to day operations. Lack of separation between work and personal lives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to implement policy properly. There is too much of a 'salad bar' going on at Alaska USA. This inconsistency causes confusion amongst employees. Employees end up getting scolded for following certain policies simply because upper management is too lazy to practice some policies.
