    I have been working at Northwest FCU full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay, benefits, and advancement opportunities are second to none. The Executives care about doing what is best for the credit union, members, and employees.

    Cons

    There are some people who need to retire. They have been here far too long and are only holding others back by trying to hold to a business model that didn't work well years ago. Change with the times or leave.

    Advice to Management

    Change is difficult, but you are headed in the right direction. Communicate more with the employees and get rid of the ineffective people.

    I worked at Northwest FCU full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are great along with their 401K matching. Most of the coworkers you will work with will be helpful. The Work/Life balance depends on which department you are in or what hours you had gotten hired upon. My managers were understanding to my life situations.

    Cons

    Depending upon which area you work in you will see favoritism. Goals will be high for incentives if your department is eligible for it. The dress code for wearing "Logo Wear" is not consistent. If you are facing member's some of the back-end departments will be reluctant to help or won't speak to the member. NWFCU is prideful on stating that you can grow with them as a company but departments will usually hire within themselves before giving other departments an opportunity to get the job.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more feedback to employees on a regular basis.
