    Good company, great benefits. Company culture is awesome when practiced

    Cons

    Management at sites are self absorbed and function for their own benefit, not the best with the people. Sr Mgt gets a bonus based on what they save on contract and most of the time they do not share with the other managers

    Advice to Management

    Think more about your team and not about yourselves. Also, ensure that management on your sites are following Chugach policy, and not making up new ones as they go along

    I have been working at Chugach Alaska full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of leeway in making decisions and making the department efficient. No true policies in place to making decision or procedures to guide your decision making.

    Slow development in process and technology. The technology in place is outdated and makes work harder as to doing tasks twice in paper trail.

    Advice to Management

    Empowerment without micromanagement but with guidance retains people.

    I worked at Chugach Alaska full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great Students, worthy cause to educate students that have been failed by the regular public education system and prepare them for successful entry into the work force.

    Cons

    Extremely stressful, management strategy is to pressure staff to constantly do more than is possible faster than is feasible with students that need more than the program has resources to support their many issues and learning problems.

    Advice to Management

    Let your staff enjoy being successful and breath once in awhile. Even long distance runners take breaks. The lack of communications and the "no talk" no transparency policy between management and lower staff is stressful and unnecessary. When staff and management personnel ask for assistance and accommodation treat them equally as seriously as you would the employees they supervise.
