    Pros

    Company is a great place to get learn with training wheels. Nice perks like buying lunch and cute gifts for Christmas.

    Cons

    After looking else where, this was the lowest paying salary in the region for me. I was quite surprised. The perks were great but they didn't justify the low pay. With such rapid growth has been growth pains. If you have a degree and are willing to move out of Idaho I suggest you do it if you already have experience. The work was soul crushing as well.

    Advice to Management

    Management does a great job keeping people happy and it has been rated the best place to work in Idaho. However, that doesn't pay the bills. I'm not sure I need to give advice, they do a great job keeping pay down by providing other incentive. Great job in that aspect.

    Pros

    Flexible, educates you on your job, excellent training.

    Cons

    Will always find a way to get more out of you than they actually pay you for. They have a tier system for training that will have you spending a lot of time outside of work acheiving, unpaid. Seems rather excessive a bit unethical for hourly employees.

    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.

    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.
