    Pros

    Tribal 8 (a) organization, aimed to give back to the community, offers clients rare opportunity for single source funding.

    Cons

    Like a fish out of water, doesn't have the know-how, experience, or chutzpah to own up to it and correct their mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of trying to swindle more money from clients, own and mitigate issues immediately. Contrary to the popular demotivator, "If there isn't money in the solution, there is money in extending the problem" is NOT THE CASE. Promising services you have no prior experience with cheaper, and quicker than the competition is not the answer, nor is it honest or ethical. This is one sure way to lose clients and potentially be disbarred. Delivering quality end products (not 1/2 assed rushed ones) no matter how long it takes, is what builds a good reputation, develops strong client relationships, and ultimately, leads to more honest work and money. Don't be afraid of change, be transparent and alert fault as soon as it is recognized, step up to the plate, and make things right the ethical way.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Copper River IT in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    I arrived for my interview on time but the recruiter had made a mistake and told me the wrong time. Instead of apologizing and trying to determine the source of the confusion, the hiring manager was incredibly rude to me and made me feel like I was wasting his time. The interview felt more like an interrogation process. Despite this, after talking about my background they did say that my skills matched a contract they were trying to fill and we proceeded to discuss compensation.

    • How do you feel about working on weekends and up to 80% travel?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Prior to coming in for the interview, I had discussed my salary requirements with the recruiter. During the negotiation process they tried to offer me far less than what I was looking for. The hiring manager actually became somewhat hostile, telling me that the experience and qualifications didn't warrant the salary I was asking for. Finally, after a very painful negotiation process, I agreed to accept the position. Now, I wished I hadn't.
