    I have been working at Farm Credit Mid-America

    Pros

    Simply focused on doing the right thing every day. The right thing for its customers/stockholders, employees, and communities. Very refreshing. Very focused on preparing for the future and continued improvement.

    Cons

    Lots of change occurring. It is clearly for the best in my view. Nevertheless, some folks that have a hard time embracing change can become uncomfortable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course.

    I have been working at Farm Credit Mid-America full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits offered if you can handle the stress. That is all I can say fancy trips for meetings...

    Cons

    Our office was very short staffed for the work expectations. One on one training as promised, so called "mentoring" never happened. Constantly threatened daily regarding work and misc issues...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know what's going on in your offices, double check your SR Leadership. They are not who you think they are. Word get around, FCMA cares about the numbers not its worker bees killing themselves to close loans!

    I have been working at Farm Credit Mid-America full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Generous base compensation, excellent variable compensation opportunities, endless opportunities for career advancement, education reimbursement, wonderful insurance options, values innovation and change.

    Cons

    Due to a strong core belief in innovation and change, there is shortage of consistency in process (great results take good time). Great if you love change, challenging if that makes you uncomfortable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to truly evaluate tenured staff--while wisdom may come with time, 25 years with a company doesn't automatically create a proper supervisor or contributor to initiatives.

    I have been working at Farm Credit Mid-America full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    We really are one big family. Being a cooperative keeps us rooted in our values and allows for a healthy work/life balance. There are numerous opportunities for personal and professional developement that each person really can drive the bus on their future; you aren't limited by anything other than your own drive.

    Cons

    As with any company, there are always stresses and annoying coworkers. But FCMA has an uncanny ability to turn even the worst of days into the best learning opportunities. I really have nothing negative to say about my current employer...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As we continue to restructure and develop leadership roles and responsibilities, focus less on titles and more on job description. Be sure what we are asking of leaders is consistent with expectations across all regions.

    Pros

    New CEO is providing more resources, leading a strong focus on our customers' experience, improving technology, and listening to field employees. Continuous improvement initiatives are making things better for customers and employees. We are growing and hiring.

    Cons

    Business growth, retirements, and hiring are putting lots of pressure on all employees to work longer, and coach and train newbies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to employees and hold leaders/coaches accountable for really coaching.

    I worked at Farm Credit Mid-America

    Pros

    Great lender with a solid reputation (among most farmers). Very supportive management in some areas. They will give you the tools to succeed.

    Cons

    Other managers have no business managing other people. Sales goals are a little lofty in regard to territory size.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your farmers/members. When a region has a mass exodus of employees, there is usually a common denominator that caused it.
