Contractor (Current Employee) – Greenbelt, MD – January 19, 2017
I like a lot of the people I work with but saw a change in culture over time toward treating people just as bodies and not people. Shareholders are the focus and the only way to be one is to have Alaskan blood.
nice facility, pay is competitive, professional environment

welder helper (Former Employee) – Fairbanks, AK – December 7, 2016
Its a great company to learn a lot of useful skills. It also lets you feel a sense of accomplishment. Your co-workers and managers are always willing to help you out when you need it. Also teach you new skills that will help you out down the line. The most enjoyable part of the job is all the experience that you can get. While the only down side is that your away from your family for a while.

Pipe Welder/ Fitter (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – January 24, 2015
Safety meeting every morning you have to contribute to, fill out safety papers every morning and place them in work area of all the hazards. Get prints, cut/ prep and weld pipe. Very high turnover rate, big jobs come and get finished very fast. Get all benefits but they dont like giving raises and try to low ball employees on pay. Other than that a great place to work if you are entry level.
Company BBQ after big jobs are done, Get good benefits
Not very competitive on pay unless they really need you.
Systems Administrator III (Current Employee) – Beltsville, MD – May 23, 2014
ASRC is an Alaska owned Native Corporation with 10,000 employees nationwide. They provide a relaxed, but professional work environment where I was able to work my way up from Helpdesk Technician to Systems Administrator with a combination of on the job experience and proficiency in my job. There will be travel and training opportunities that should delight anyone seeking career employment.
The hardest part of the job is that the infrastructure and projects are very business driven. Supporting a large enterprise can be difficult when IT is at the whim of business decisions and processes. There are a multitude of tools at their disposal but some more staffing would go a long way.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the relaxed but professional environment and exposure to best of breed technologies.
Awesome place to work - Stress-free and laid back work environment

Sr. Human Resource Generalist (Current Employee) – Huntsville, AL – November 7, 2013
ASRC Federal is a decent place to work. The hardest part about working here is communication between subsidiaries within the Corporation. To be such a big company, nothing is flowed down to the employees in the trenches so often rumors kick up and there isn't a clear answer. There is some great people who work at ASRC Federal and the culture background is really interesting being Alaskan Native owned. Management is iffy at best and often does not seem to do what is best for the employees but more the bottom line which is often the case with huge corporations. I have learned while working here the true meaning of happiness in my job. It's not always about your paycheck, but more about your management support, your coworkers and team and also the ethics of yourself.
Huntsville Office is a great place to work with a strong team.
Professional, challenging and fun work environment
Corporate Controller (Current Employee) – Anchorage, AK – December 19, 2012
There really are no typical days here which is what keeps this job challenging. If I get 2 things done on my to do list a day during the hours of 8AM to 5PM, I feel like I have accomplished great things. Most of my to do list items get done outside of business hours. What makes this job great are the people I work with, either upper management or those I supervise. I feel like the team is of incredible caliber and very reliable. Our company is involved in so many lines of business that each day something new comes up which is a learning experience. The hardest part of my job is to supervise employees in remote locations with very little presence on site; and hte most enjoyable part of my job is teaching people and watching them grow into newer positions. This is really a great job, and unless I was not anticipating moving out of Alaska I would not be looking for another position. I arrive motivated and leave excited, always having done the best that I can.
