    I worked at Bristol Bay Native (More than 5 years)

    You can take the summers off for commercial or subsistence purposes

    Some times inner office politics override things

    I worked at Bristol Bay Native full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Understanding when I missed filling in my timesheet due to "fighting fires" for our client
    Currently 401K vesting from day 1
    Superb Health benefits

    Cons

    Since they work hard to keep overhead down it was occasionally hard to reach folks in the head office; however, when I did get through they were always extremely polite and helpful.

    So why am I a former employee instead or a current employee? Our client had a budget short fall of $2 million. "In their shoes", I would have had to lay me off too.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing

  3. "good and bad"

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Bristol Bay Native full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Overall the company is very people orientated and compensate the employees fairy but your chance for growth is limited.

    Cons

    They have a tendency to hire not necessarily the highest qualified employee but a shareholder. It is not a level playing field for non shareholders.

    Advice to Management

    Open up the lines of communication to all employees not just shareholders.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Bristol Bay Native full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They really try to take care of their employees. They really try to work through problems with an employee in a fashion that works for both them and the employee.

    Cons

    Sometimes short sightedness can be a problem. They are remotely based and it makes it hard to live in the area due to expenses.

    Advice to Management

    Move major operations to Anchorage and keep Dillingham as a service area.
