This is a great company. Great teams of people at all levels of the organization. Very much into involving everyone in groups to help shape the company, products/services, and such. Members are a priority and everyone loves their job. There is not alot of turnover, that says alot...

Cons

I cannot think of any cons. I don't know why you cannot submit without putting any words in the cons box...

    Pros

    They have decent health benefits and time off. They do have 10 federal holidays off as well. The dress code is business casual.

    Cons

    The place is top heavy with mid to senior level managers, good look breaking into that club since only favorites are given any attention. The policies are reactive rather than proactive and it's not usually in favor of the membership. The influx of Wells Fargo refugees is mind boggling but they want to sell products rather than provide quality service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop creating management positions for your cronies and root out the institutionalized incompetence that is tolerated at all levels.

    Pros

    There are amazing people because this organization is all about member service and doing what's best for people. If you are looking for a mission, the credit union cause is a great one to fight for. You have a great deal of freedom to make a difference in people's lives. The CEO is a phenomenal motivational leader and there are many talented leaders throughout the organization.

    Cons

    Over the past few years they have increased hiring from banks and unfortunately that is changing the culture of this credit union. The focus has changed substantially from "Relationships are all there is" to "Numbers are all that matter."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose sight of the mission! The credit union is not-for-profit and it's purpose is to serve the underserved. Stop focusing on the wealthy. That will never be a credit union niche, nor should it be. Promote your talent from within. Don't hire from organizations whose cultures are the opposite of a credit union. When all you care about is numbers, you are officially a bank.
