Pros

Friendly and receptive staff. Huge IT department. Very flexible, allowing you to move between departments. Intern projects which matter and are used in production. Huge credit union/coop support. Beautiful sun-lit Atrium. On-campus gym (LifeSite). Cafeteria with delicious food and decent prices. Underground tunnels for days with bad weather. Very laid-back atmosphere -- can basically choose your own hours. Very impressive internship program -- well-structured, very involving, very flexible.

Cons

Poor initial communication from HR, but my view of this was completely changed after starting. Lots of meetings, but generally this is beneficial for gaining knowledge about projects and the company in general.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to be more specific with goals and terminology. I know it's hard to do this when there are so many departments and sub-departments, but many of us were confused with the idea of "Agility."

    Pros

    CUNA Mutual cares about the people that work here and provides opportunities to move around within the company. I've worked here for over 20 years and have had multiple jobs/roles during this time and feel i've been compensated well and treated fairly. If you work hard and get the job done, you will be rewarded with new opportunities. CUNA Mutual also understands that it's important to invest in their people and provides many training options. I believe CUNA Mutual is truly a "career company". If you take personal ownership of your own career, leveraging the resources that are available, you can have a long and satisfying work experience.

    Cons

    Like all larger organizations, it's hard to keep up with the many different initiatives and activities. We've made great improvements in communicating to our employees, but need to keep this as a key focus. We need to continue to understand how our work fits into the end goal of serving credit unions and credit union memembers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do whatever you can to get "face-time" with employees at all levels of the organization. Take time to know what energizes and motivates your team.

    It was a great company; but all that changed with the latest executive team.

    Pros

    Great city and great marketplace.

    Cons

    The company has gone the way of other large corporations: The executive team is arrogant and employees are treated as disposable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't like the city, the employee group, and the marketplace, go find another company to run into the ground.
