Pros

Great health dental and vision, excellent 401 k plan for full time employees, encouragement of ongoing education, Management is very supportive,

Cons

Career path is limited when coming in as a senior level expert. Other than that, i cannot speak to any downsides.

Advice to Management

Reinstate tuition reimbursement, I understand that training is encouraged and provided but some people would like to broaden their level of education without being so specific to their current position within the company.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great on work/life balance, quarterly meetings that are fun, plenty of holidays (standard Christmas, etc. but also SRPMIC Day, birthday leave, etc.), Roundhouse Cafe can be a good place to eat breakfast and/or lunch, celebrate events like Halloween, visibility of the President and Vice-President (meaning they make regular appearances so that's nice to see executive people amongst the regular employees), great use of technology, the Two Waters buildings are state of the art to a certain extent, close nit community has its pros, people outside of your division are great to you and recognize you as a good employee, they give you your own Blackberry (although that could be a con since you'll always be expected to answer calls/emails no matter the time),

    Cons

    You become trapped. The Community pays you well but you get sucked into it. If you want to leave, you seemingly can't because you'll have a hard time finding something that pays similarly. Getting paid is great of course, but not at the cost of you losing yourself. Some aspects of certain divisions are corrupt. There's an approach of if someone doesn't ask about something don't mention it, even if its something very important that has been decided to be kept in the dark. Like with other reservations, there is so much red tape its insane. Nothing can be done officially without the BIA's approval. Non-Natives tend to be looked down upon in the sense that upper management would much rather have a Community member in your position. Many lack the education so they're forced to hire Non-Natives. You're held in high regard if you one or both of these: a native and a person who has worked for the Community for many years. If you're not that, expect to be out of there quickly as you're just a place holder until they can find a Native to replace you. Many people who live on the Community are stuck in the past. Many don't understand certain things and blame whatever it is on the existing administration or employees. There is almost no training for any positions. Management provides very little guidance and shun you if you inquire. It seems like they have no idea what they're doing sometimes. The regulations and related are constantly changing so you're often left wondering what just happened. The pros seem very inviting and maybe the cons are on a personal level, but if you decide to work here be prepared to put up with a bunch of stuff you didn't intend to and find that you have no way out without starting over from where you were before getting there. My advice would be to not get lured in and stay away. Once you're in your position don't expect a promotion for some time.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with more respect and don't be two-faced.
