    I worked at NANA Services full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Worked with a great team that was always looking out for the team and not themselves. The salary was extremely competitive and the benefits were great.

    Cons

    Leadership tended to micromanage at times which added more time to projects than was necessary. The work life balance was not what I was lead to believe from the beginning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your managers have a little more lead-way.

    I worked at NANA Services full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The particular group that I worked in was for the most part extremely competent which made going to work fun. We had a lot of freedom to deliver solutions. Work-life balance was exceptional for the most part.

    Cons

    Typical corporate and regional politics. Not the best benefits in the world, but far from the worst.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees are your greatest assets. Continue to build your businesses around your exceptional teams.

    I worked at NANA Services full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The only pro I experienced was the day I left my job with Nana.

    Cons

    Too many to count, the biggest ones being; 1.Pay is not worth working and being treated like a prisoner, expect to be paid less than everyone else in Alaska, 2.Management is irresponsible and untrustworthy which is a big deal since you basically have to live with your bosses for at least half of the year when you work remote, and 3.the buildings you have to stay in are disgusting and falling down, some have been condemned but are still being used, especially at the biggest camps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people and treat them the way they deserve to be, get rid of the crazies and promote the good people from within, stop the revolving door of employees just to protect the few people in management that nobody can work for because they don't treat people right.

    I have been working at NANA Services full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There is a great deal of collective talent in the training department, from graphic artists to instructional designers. The management we HAD was conscientious about keeping people employed through changing contracts.

    Cons

    Now that the company has merged a lot of its subsidies, there is no corporate conscience. People are a number and a salary and they cut at will; yet they continue to send out company wide memos about the new corporate management that is being hired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be better communication and more POSITIVE communication to your management which will hopefully trickle down to the employees within that division. You are more concerned about your shareholders than your employees.

    I worked at NANA Services

    Pros

    Free trip to Antarctica with lots of travel benefits, cold weather gear provided, reimbursement for a wide variety of expenses.

    Cons

    Very rarely wanted anyone promoted, pay was terrible compared to amount of hours worked, management made now effect to get to know employees personally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow a bit more room for creativity, less of a focus on hiding hiring practices and methodology for determining bonuses.
