I worked at Redwood Credit Union full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

They provide great service and rates to their members. They also have an excellent benefits package.

Cons

Senior management fails to take heed of employee's concerns and overall well-being. They are more concerned about promoting a falsified profile for themselves to the CEO, than address actual concerns in the corporate office. There is a huge imbalance with work-life; which oddly enough seems to be a topic of discussion with the CEO, but senior management fails to communicate the concerns made by the employees they oversee. Many in the back office staff are unhappy and are seeking other employment opportunities.

There is also a lack of concern for overworked staff. It seems as though some senior managers have the persona of: "Look at me; all of my departments are doing so well while working with so little. Aren't I doing a great job?!" Staff is overworked and underpaid.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not be afraid to share the actual concerns of your employees with the CEO. There seems to be a huge failure of communication. Many of your back office employees are fizzling out due to stress. Company overall needs to hire more staff to even out the ridiculous workload. Perhaps the CEO could address the work-life balance with the actual "pee-ons" as opposed to "questionable" senior management?

    I have been working at Redwood Credit Union full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    For the most part good work life balance, attracts smart ethical team players.

    Cons

    Positions that should be salary are hourly, management enforcing make up time even though the employee handbook says otherwise. Position felt disposable since so much is outsourced. No room for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't take a chance on hiring inexperienced managers and if you do find out if they are ruining team morale.

    I worked at Redwood Credit Union full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Work Life Balance. 5 year longevity leave made it worthwhile to work there. Adequate tuition reimbursement program. Excellent medical benefits including adult orthodontics.

    Cons

    Promotions and advancement opportunities were limited. At the time there was no real career development program. I don't know if that has changed. Employees can get stuck in their positions.
