    Pros

    one of the largest engineering firms in Alaska - various projects, big portfolio, rich experience employee owned company friendly people opportunity for training and learning more new stuff a lot of informal projects to do together

    Cons

    Alaska is rough sometimes so living in Fairbanks can be difficult especially when the rest of the family lives pretty far.

    Pros

    Flexibility, Mormon faith foundation of company which means the cherish and istill family values. Great Pay if you work hard, fun happy environment. Experienced management team. They listen to employees input and implement your good ideas.

    Cons

    They trust everyone, including inexperienced sales people who come on board, don't sell and then just live off of a base salary until they get terminated. Still haven't moved into the new century with technology. Belief that the phone books still work and are the best resource for consumers looking where to spend their money. Corporate needs to take hold of SEO and SEM by the horns and make internet marketing one of their strongest components versus the weakest one.

    Advice to Management

    Wake Up its 2010. Computer technology is getting stronger and we have to be ahead of the competition if you want the compony to grow and be around for many years to come. You cant do the work of today, using the technology of yesterday and expect to still be in business tomorrow.

    Pros

    The small size of the company makes it easy to approach company leadership. There is a good diversity of work with excellent staff to support them. The diversity of work also provides a cushion in slower economic conditions.

    Cons

    The company's willingness to pay for travel to professional conferences is okay, but it could be better. Being in Alaska it's expensive to send staff to conferences outside the state, so it's understandable.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more training opportunities. Actively seek projects outside of Alaska. The two offices need to work together more closely; there are resources in each that would benefit from more collaboration.
