    Pros

    Current project work in variety of industries working with clients leading the advancement of energy projects both private sector and government entities. Every employee has the opportunity to advance and move within company.

    Cons

    Frequent leadership changes and changing in priorities, lack of leadership access and strategy at the business unit levels while holding business units to unrealistic metrics for operations. Shareholder focused employment recruiting, advancement and development without merit to skills or experience to fulfill operation and project needs while overlooking expertise of non-shareholders.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate operations needs to spend more time within business unit operations to realize the needs, challenges, strengths and possibilities for growth and revenue stream potentials. Create less roadblocks for business units and add value to the revenue generating units of the company. Focus less on Shareholder hire initiatives and more on shareholder dividend potential.

    Pros

    When they have work and get a great group of people, but wait for the shoe to drop

    Cons

    They will cut employees in a heartbeat. They do not look at workload, they just get people out the door without trying to keep people. Company thinks " if we have work they will come back to us."

    Advice to Management

    Try to forecast and help your employees transition or help other departments. If you don't have work, then be truthful with your employees, and don't think we are all jaded or crooks. Some of us are adults and can handle down turns.

    Pros

    Employee Perks such as discounts at Fed Ex and other companies

    Cons

    There is a definite difference between shareholders and non shareholders. It feels as if you do not matter unless you are a shareholder or Alaskan native. Management does not manage work well. It feels as if ASRC does not care about the employee, just the bottom line

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees fairly. Don't be so divisive. Their motto is "One Crew, One Journey". Too bad ASRC does not live up to that.

    I enjoyed the guys I worked with in Kuparuk, AK

    Cons

    No support from upper management. And if your not one of the "buddies" withing the company, eventually they will find a way to push you out.

    Can't fix what been going on for many many years.

    Pros

    Supportive employer for current employees

    Cons

    Non-exsisting HR support for employee releases due to downsizing the result of economic downturn.

    Advice to Management

    Most employers expect 2 weeks notice from an employee to allow filling/train replacement. They should assist employees, i.e.employment/retirement.

    I worked at ASRC Energy (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company executes work on the North Slope of Alaska. the work is challenging and interesting, and the pay is more than adequate. If offered, I would consider returning.

    Cons

    The management made promises that it could not keep. I should personally forgive the individuals involved, but a company should not promise a position and then withdraw it, unless there is just cause.

    Upon accepting employment at this company, one should be aware there is a published priority for employment rendered to the members of the Native Alaskan tribal organization that owns the holding company. Prospects for advancement appear to be limited for employees who do not come from the more favored demography.

    Advice to Management

    You have very good connections to clients and contracts. Pay attention to the talented employees who can mentor your more favored Native Alaskan employees. Consider why so many employees leave. Take the recommendations of you middle managers with a proverbial grain of salt.
