Pros

No where to spend your money. Student loans can be paid off.

Cons

The cost of living is very high. You can only leave via airplane and it costs approximately $350 round trip to fly into Anchorage for specialized medical, shopping or even to go to the movies. There is nothing to do on your days off. No movies, very few restaurants and they all have the same food, nothing that you would have in a regular city.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your regular staff instead of the travelers. If you pay a traveler $40 an hour then $40 an hour to their company, plus round trip transportation, plus housing, and you only pay your regular employe $40 an hour the 6% you put into their account at the end of the year does not equate not with the harsh living environment and the cost of living in an isolated village.

    Pros

    Great people, lot's of opportunity for improvement. YKHC is a great place to work if you are ok with remote Alaska.

    Cons

    Small company with limited growth potential. It can get very cold in Bethel, Alaska, but if you are ok with that, this is the place to work in town.

    Pros

    There are no pros to working here.

    Cons

    Bosses that are only out for themselves
    Bosses that have separate rules for certain employees, which encourages conflict between employees.
    Bosses allow physical threats to occur in the workplace.
    Senior management is completely incompetent. Normally, if one employee threatens another, the employee making the threat is no longer an employee, here they just send them to HR, for a 'talk'.
    If things continue, this place will be another statistic, where an employee comes back and shoots someone, I'm just glad, as long as it happens after Memorial Day, I won't be around to get shot. Stay away from this place!
    Not a good place to work. Even if you are unemployed and don't have any other prospects, do not take a job here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Terminate employees that threaten coworkers, in anyway, shape or form. If they comment to another employee that, 'you don't know what I'm capable of', that person should NOT go to HR, they should go to jail!
