    I worked at Asrc full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of work and seemingly high pay rates. Incredible native culture and diversified talents. Company is diversified and is acquiring new companies at a fast pace. #1 profit leader in state and highest amount of employees spread over the country.

    Cons

    Warning!! Little to no recognition, poor morale, poor leadership, over worked, poor employee retention leads to excessive work by existing staff to keep up with the amount of work underway. Lack of transparency by IT directors and management. Excessive meetings. More project managers than staff to complete the work. Performance review process does not take into account quantity or quality of work or amount of after hours work required. Virtually no training process in place for IT unless it comes with system upgrades. Native hiring preference leads to hostile work environment as natives criticize non natives because they want more native hires in higher positions.

    Advice to Management

    Create career path enhancements for dedicated employees and promote from within. Reduce hours required to work. Deal with it management issues and backfill open position right away or you will loose the remainder of what's left of team. Pay full bonus structure to those who stayed and endured the years of short staffed teams. Deal with stress level created by CIO lack of compassion for overworked employees. He and director of end user services are railroading senior or highly valued employees out in order to make themselves look good and meet objectives for their own annual bonus programs. Keep up with rate of inflation for annual raises. The past 3 years has been 2% or less for employees that meet or exceed performance guidelines.

    Pros

    It would have to be the greatest place I've ever worked. From the top to the bottom, every employee knows their duties and management is great.

    Cons

    I have nothing bad to say

    I have been working at Asrc full-time

    Pros

    The people are fantastic. Fair salaries and bonus structure. Generous vacation and holidays. Company is solid and always growing, great job security (if the poor senior leadership doesn't drive you away).

    Cons

    Disappointing IT senior leadership with little to zero real IT experience who often bypass department managers. They often turn simple tasks into huge political issues instead of trusting their staff who have far more experience in both IT and the company.

    Advice to Management

    All advice is to Senior IT leadership: Follow the chain of command. Tell your middle managers what needs to be done, not how to do it. Value your employees. Stop asking "what does that mean?" every few minutes to your engineer who is trying to resolve a high severity issue, that is not the appropriate time.

    Pros

    They are great to their people and really help you achieve a work-life balance. Hours were set and in 3+ years working there, I only had to stay late twice... and once was due to building maintenance making a mistake with our door lock, so I had to wait for him to come back to fix it. The regional manager was really easy to work with and was very down to earth. Everyone was super helpful and worked well together. Lots of perks, such as free and cheap seafood. Customers would often bring by seafood that I was able to take home. And my boss would order wholesale cases of crab and salmon off the boats, which I was able to purchase. It's a lot all at once, but if you have the freezer space, it's some of the best salmon we've ever had (and the cheapest)

    Cons

    At least in my Accounts Receivable/Administrative position, there was not really any room for growth.

    Flexibility is great
    Generally the team is easy to work with
    Leave is great

    Cons

    Benefits are costly

    getting a response from the team or those you are working with is difficult
    IT is generally a back burner item and is only thought of when necessary (this make projects more difficult than necessary)

    Not willing to spend money on personnel or equipment for employees

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees, Spend the money on them to make them want to do a good job. Give them the equipment to perform well. Back the IT team up, don't back them into a corner.
