    Pros

    So many companies talk about building a strong culture, but Icon lives it. It starts with the CEO taking you to coffee your first week and genuinely wanting to get to know you and understand your desires and experience. Example, when they say that their cultural standards include Leadership and Drive, they mean it. The review and promotion system supports raises given only if you are growing in the company, and as a result, the employees they hire are engaged and are high producers. Whiners aren't really tolerated or welcomed by their peers. If you want to work hard and play hard, join Icon. If you want to coast in your job, it's probably not the place for you. The leadership also never forgets who they serve, the members, and the mission. I LOVE that they take their staff to camp at a cool place in the mountains once per year and invest in the team building and bonding that makes a cohesive team. Everyone comes back feeling part of a big team. It's nice to be part of a growing company too so their culture is working for the business.

    Cons

    There is no way you can hide in the background, but then again, it's nice for the majority of high achievers and really motivates the staff to reach a little higher. Also, it is a not-for-profit business, and employees are expected to spend money wisely, so there is not enough money for frivolous things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't get lazy with culture and keep on driving it - we can only get better.

    I have been working at Icon Credit Union full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working at Icon is way different than working for your larger financial institutions. You get to focus on the customer and not just blindly sell products and services to everyone that comes through the door. If you show a willingness to learn and are a high performing employee there are tons of opportunities for advancement. Volunteering in the community is encouraged and they allow 40 hours paid per year to volunteer for organizations you believe in. Don't forget about all the paid holidays!

    Cons

    You will advance only if you put in the time and effort and contribute to the organization. Those that think they deserve things without working to obtain them will not advance very quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cultural values drive business!

    I worked at Icon Credit Union part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very involved in the community. We team lunches all the time. Nice bank holidays, and friendly staff.

    Cons

    Their is no room for growth within this company. Don't get me wrong, their is some advancement, but eventually, with this company, you will hit a wall and have to look for work somewhere else. This is due partly to the idea that it is a small, non for profit, business. The department is prone to reprimand you for even the slightest mistake, and makes your position seem threatened. then a few weeks later everything is okay. Following the all clear, they let you go for the simplest of things. If they say part time, better believe it will never move into a full time position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you post a part time position online with the possibility to go full time, please make sure you actually mean it. Pay needs to be very dependent on education, and need a better training program. I felt so lost when i was trained by you.
