    Pros

    If you are an Alaska Native, with an interest in helping other Alaska Natives, then this is a great place to be. They are at the forefront of health ideas and planning, and have access to federal, tribal, state, and even local resources.

    Cons

    If you are not an Alaska Native, then they will aggressively racially profile you and push you out. It hasn't been a good place to work for about 15 years, and discrimination is rampant. Also, promotions are non-existent unless you've worked there for over 10 years, and upper level administrative positions are impossible to get unless you are an Alaska Native.

    Advice to Management

    Do not apply for positions for people to come in and help for which you are not qualified to deliver.

    Hold all employees accountable for punctuality and excellent patient care.

    Pros

    ANTHC has a terrific mission and many good employees who are dedicated to serving. Benefits are strong. CEO is good at communication and seems to care.

    Cons

    HR is unbelievably slow at all junctions--from hiring to existing staff support to the final exit interview (mine was requested 4 months after I left). Some departments are run like a fiefdom. Bullying is present in places and goes unchecked.

    Advice to Management

    ANTHC would be wise to reboot their HR Department entirely. I never had a timely interaction with them. I wish I had. ANTHC has so much good going on. Fix HR and your employees will soar even more. While I wish there were the foresight to remove all the negative people who have a problem for every solution, at the end of the day, we know a rudderless department tends to breed jealousy and all its ugly baggage. Advice to Management? Fix HR and listen and properly respond to formal employee notifications. The issues aren't going to go away on their own, but the employee will.

    I worked at Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful campus with lots of walking options.
    Access to free health club.
    Excellent benefits with lots of extras such as discounts at GCI.

    Cons

    Ideas given by staff are not explored even when they are asked for. Super high turnover of both exceutive leadership and staff. Very short notice of meetings - less than four hours. Very poor planning. Several times I was asked to particpate in an activity that took me away from my job duties for 3-4 hours and was given 10 minutes notice.

    Advice to Management

    Provide employees adequate time to work. Many days were spent all day in meetings/trainings while day to day tasks were not been handled. When giving bonuses to staff, keep the spreadsheet confidential (esp. in HR). If you request an employee to retrieve an employee file, give them access to the employee file room. Treat all equal - the favorites were well known & do not keep one TOXIC terrible staff member because you will lose many good ones while you keep that bad one. Probably the worst place I've ever worked!

    I worked at Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium full-time

    Pros

    Upper management tries to be open to improvement. however, they seem to be stifled by midlevel managers.

    Plenty of Jobs openings

    Cons

    The HR and Payroll policies are lacking. Policies are unevenly enforced. The organization will try not to pay benefits if they can.

    Midlevel managers are often there because of time in service, not because they are competent capable.
