    Pros

    good benefits, very friendly co-workers, just a great credit union to work for.

    Cons

    It's still a fairly smaller bank when compared to the commercial banks, so there are some things we dont offer compared to the bigger banks and its hard to explain that to some customers.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep up the good work. constructive criticism is good, but dont forget to praise employees when we do a good job.

  2. stressful and difficult
