Pros

Coffee shop on the first floor at the corporate office in Anchorage is convenient and locally owned.

Cons

Management lacks innovation, doesn't listen to subject matter experts, and managers, especially subsidiary and corporate executives, are selected from a pool of insiders who protect each other at the expense of the company and other employees. They know one trick--government contracting exploiting the Native corporation exclusions to laws designed to help small businesses--and now that that trick isn't working their revenue is falling.

Advice to Management

Bring in some outside talent with proper credentials and experience, and then listen to them, don't fire them when they tell you something you don't want to know.

    Pros

    There are some very smart dediacated people who work for this company. Management will overlook many ethic and work related violations in order to not fire someone. At lower levels there is not a lot of accountability so you are free to do most anything you please on company time.

    Cons

    There are no periodic reviews or raises, no training or upward mobility. Communication between all levels is lacking. There is no company or corporate pride, or appreciation for what their employees do.

    Advice to Management

    Periodic reviews should be annual at minimum, and training opportunities for employees, who have shown solid work ethic, to be able to move into other positions. Their budgeting practices from top to bottom need to be overhauled and the HR department needs ethics training.

    Pros

    Reasonably good pay, pretty nice facilities, opportunities to advance to full-time employment. Opportunities to make a difference in young people's lives. All of my co-workers are helpful and pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Low quality/motivation of students (most have been kicked out of other schools - this is a Federal Job Corps Center) Excessive turnover (average tenure about 2 years); many staff members are gone within 3 months.

    Advice to Management

    Make a least a nominal effort to retain employees - especially good ones. Don't fire people just because they point out where improvement can be made.
