Resource Data Inc
Programmer/Analyst (Current Employee) –  Juneau AlaskaOctober 7, 2014
The Juneau branch of Resource Data Inc is always hiring programmers and now I know why. When I was first hired through an entirely telephone based interview process I jumped at the opportunity to move to Alaska. By the time I had arrived in Juneau the branch manager who hired me had stepped down. The companies on boarding process for new programmers consisted of giving me a poorly written and outdated technical manual and throwing me head first into code maintenance of the companies Intranet. After two months the Sr. programmer I sat next was moved offsite and I continued development with almost no oversight. The junior programmers I work with are all very nice and easy to get along with but share similar experiences of being overwhelmed and under trained. Six months in and I am still waiting to to be put on a real project and wondering why I was hired in the first place as there seems to be no work for junior programmers and I am left wondering if there will be any in the foreseeable future.

Management seems focused on drumming up new business, all of which is contract based. In the time I have worked here I keep hearing about the next great contract that is sure to bring us lucrative work. But very few of those contracts ever seem to come to fruition. The flexible hours have been nice as has the opportunity to be exposed to a variety of web technologies, however as a new Software Engineer I see little room for career growth here. If you are a seasoned professional familiar with dealing with the inns and outs of contract based software development looking to settle down
  more... in a beautiful place then this may be the company for you. If you are a young graduate looking to do something innovative with room for career growth then it most certainly is not.  less

Programmer Analyst (Former Employee) –  Anchorage, AKJune 5, 2013
A good small-ish sized company that hasn't lost touch. Pleasant coworkers and management that still value their employees. It's contract work, though, so it's all about the billable hours.
Pros
Free sodas when I was there. There was talk about taking that away though
Cons
Benefits aren't great
