    Pros

    Nice perks like lunch and gifts for Christmas and decent flexibility

    Cons

    Some people move up fast, most do not. Even with my college degree in business I was not allowed to move up yet told I was on the right track and just had to wait "x" amount of months/years. Yet, low and behold some people would be moved up within less than 2 months that were less qualified or had less educatation. I stayed my one year to make sure my resume looked decent but knew even though I had been a start performer that I wasn't part of the "image" of ICCU and would have a hard time advancing.

    Advice to Management

    By now I'm sure they've heard all the rules.

    Pros

    Employer paid benefits were the best I've ever seen. For non-IT departments, there is room to grow and get promoted from within.

    Cons

    Low compensation for IT team.
    Management doesn't listen. Ideas that come from those in non-manager positions are not listened to. If, by some miracle they are, managers take all the credit. The VP of IT was the worst manager I've ever worked for. He has an "I"m never wrong" attitude. After others had left the company, he bad-mouthed everything the did. I'm sure he did the same about me.
    There were many "knee-jerk" reactions. Rather than think through what would be best for the employees and the company, managers only look out for their best interests.
    Managers and above take a large bonus at the end of the year, but most workers don't get any bonus at all.
    For salary employees they are too focused on the number of hours worked than the work that was done. We were told that if we didn't put in at least 45 hours per week, we shouldn't expect a raise. And that 45 hours didn't include the time spend working evenings or from home.

    Advice to Management

    Realize what a great workforce you have and treat them accordingly.

  3. Not the brightest upper management

    Pros

    good members
    some locations are great, depends on the management
    decent schedules

    Cons

    Executives are close minded to smart change
    Sales pressures are intense
    Pay is not good for industry
    The credit union is CHEAP!

    Advice to Management

    Pocatello officers need to get out of their offices and visit stores, solicite employee feedback before implementing change. Get on the same page, level of inconsistent answers and incompetence is crazy. Accountabeility for less than stellar employees is too lax, if someone can not do the job they were hired to do, get rid of them, and stop expecting other employees in the branch to pick up their slack.
