    Pros

    Pay is better than some communications companies.

    Cons

    High turnover in management. When one manager quits they just promote the nearest body without any consideration toward qualifications. Due to the total lack of documented processes, new policies are put into place almost daily and forgotten just as fast. Every new policy is just a knee jerk reaction to a problem that never would have happened if they would just create a plan and stick with it.

    Advice to Management

    Be more selective in your hiring process. Have less tolerance for employees who do not perform.

    Pros

    The only reason there is one star is because the reviewer cannot select zero.

    Cons

    Corporate leadership doesn't seem to adhere to the code of ethics they preach.

    Advice to Management

    When your moral compass gets a sense that things are amiss with what you're being directed, trust it. Go elsewhere.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Typical ANC where management compensation is above industry averages and executive compensation is exceptional. Benefit packages are generous, but they will change your health care benefit frequently just to create busy work for the HR Departments.

    Cons

    These companies will never grow beyond the ability to marginally perform in anything other than sole-sourced government contracts and big oil hand-out programs. The burden from their village socialism and their unwillingness to capitalize earnings will ensure they just continue to bump along.

    Advice to Management

    Position more MBAs and fewer Whaling Captains on the Board of Directors. Some of these folks need to take a good hard look at their own Umiaqs, before preaching their holistic ethics to the outside world.

    Pros

    The company is very flexible if you need personal time.

    Cons

    There is no standard procedure in place. You have inexperiences staff getting promotion and earning salary higher than management....

    Advice to Management

    Restructure the support group.
