    I have been working at Bowhead Family of Companies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company adheres to the values that the Inupiat people have given to our team in Government Services (GS). We are the largest part of the UIC companies with over 3000 employees. The teams here at HQ are strong and the folks are very friendly to work with. We get free bagels/donuts and such once a month as well as monthly birthdays, which are fun. The 401k is descent and the benefits are good, not great. Come to this company because you want to work with people who value the Inupiat values. You can read them on the website at bowheadsupport.com.

    Cons

    This is government consulting work and has more challenges than much of the work in the commercial sector. The Government client can be very demanding and meeting those demands takes patience and persistence.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the ship on course and look towards a 20 year plan.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Bowhead Family of Companies.

    Interview

    The interview took place in the Bowhead building just outside the worksite, and was with the local manager and a representative from the client who I was going to work with. A number of questions about my resume and my skills were asked, but there was an air of casualness and friendliness about it.
