    I worked at Meridian CU full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Colleagues are fantastic; Benefits Above Average in the industry.

    Cons

    Meridian promotes itself internally and externally as respecting their employees and members, but with the growth over the last 7 years it's reached the point where it's more like a bank. Increased turnover; GroupThink; and dysfunction between teams. Instead of continual improvement, it's more like 'if reports show something bad, change the report'.

    Salary in St. Catharines is below industry standard; Work Life Balance is not easily maintained depending on the department you work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Growth need not be the primary motivating factor for the organization - remember your roots! The idea of having to constantly merge and grow can only serve to take away your community and member focus in the longer run.

    Pros

    Learned about project management, the politics of mergers and acquisitions.

    Cons

    Nasty politics, confused leadership and constantly changing goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Choose one direction and be honest about your motives.
