    I have been working at Qivliq

    Pros

    this a flexible organization dedicated to retaining both clients and employees alike. Best place I have ever worked.

    Cons

    A little disorganized, but overall a great place to work. Its growing at a fast rate so the minor details get missed, but that is to be expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need a better organizational structure, which will come with time. There is a lot of growth, so the growing pains will fade.

    Qivliq = Akima = Meh. On the face of everything, they are supposed to do good, but in reality they are very shady.

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

    Pros

    The biggest "pro" was a paycheck, although it was barely living wage for Northern Virginia. The other "pro" is that your work is supposed to help the shareholders (the natives back in Alaska), but the only ones getting rich are the executives at Qivliq or whatever they've changed their name to now... What is it? Akima?

    Cons

    The are very shady with communications to staff. You find out everything through rumor and speculation. As soon as they grow to big and must graduate from the 8a program, they "retire" the company name and replace it with one of the smaller subsidiary company names all to keep the scam alive. They keep salaries low and below industry averages because you're "helping the shareholders", but I happen to know that they don't receive much money. They pushed a lot of "family values" nonsense, but when they wanted to eliminate people for no good reason, they certainly didn't treat people like family then. Unless you are somehow connected to a shareholder or are an executive's kid, you can forget the chance of much advancement. Also, forget making any decisions of your own based out of your professional experience. When I was there, you couldn't even burp without running it up the flagpole. My advice? Go elsewhere if you are a seasoned professional. If you are just getting into the job market or like abuse, lies, and deceit, have at it!

    I have been working at Qivliq full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some very good people. Some very good work being done.

    Cons

    The company professes 3 very outstanding tenets (Honesty and Integrity Govern our Activities; Commitments Made Will Be Fulfilled; Everyone Will Be Treated With Dignity and Respect). Actually behavior is 180 degrees opposite.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a bad culture run by morally deficient and incapable people. There really is no hope so the current management should ride it out as long as they can.
