    I worked at ASRC Energy (More than 8 years)

    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.

    I worked at ASRC Energy full-time

    Pros

    Offers decent pay for engineer rate, office work environment is not bad, and some flex time. Sorry, I don't have a 20 word minimum here to satisfy this category because there's isn't much to say that's positive from a native company who are passive discriminatory against its non native work force.

    Cons

    The big picture:
    Native company run by incompetent natives and non-native management who are also incompetent will stop at nothing to follow orders and enforce decisions by the shareholders who's jobs are never at risk no matter how incompetent they are for fear of job security.

    The important details:
    Hiring managers make big promises to bring good talent on board and lie about long term employment, uses and abuses employees in respect to realistic workload, project team on engineering and design side is always short staff, fast track schedule and super low budget, engineering and design expectations are a total joke, working environment becomes extremely stressful, health benefits costs are expensive and coverage is so poor you will end up paying above $5000 for minor emergency care visits if cat scans or X-rays are done (beware), beware of amazing hiring offers and benefits package are only a tool for enticing you to come aboard then lay you off after they use you for a specific project, long term employees working there are very alienating towards new staff and expect you to do all the hard work while they sit around and surf the Internet, review your work when finished and only offer negative feedback after busting your butt designing and developing all deliverables from scratch so they can cut and paste your work on the future projects.

    Bottom line:
    Stay away from this cut throat native company if you're looking for a promising long term professional career because I can assure you this place only abuses the staff they hire to benefit the goals of the native shareholder business objectives. Every former employee I ever spoke to said they would never work for this native company ever again.

    Advice to Management

    You can't offer advice to a native company and its shareholders who have a constant high turn over rate of employees as a result of top down management being of native decent, pawns control over non native managers doing their dirty work and manipulate its employees is a top priority

    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.
