    Pros

    ICCU truly cares about employees. We are a "work family." We celebrate records and awards together, and go above and beyond to help our credit union members. As members of the "Green Team" we wear our custom green Nikes on Fridays and love to work hard to grow ICCU. We walk in parades, serve in the community, and live our mission to help members achieve financial success.

    Cons

    If you just want to collect a pay check and not give 110% in a great cause, it's probably not the place for you. ICCU doesn't force it's employees to work along side those who really don't care about excellence.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    They do a great job of acquiring new customers and providing solid, cheap products for them

    Cons

    This is an awful company. They sit on a platform of high ethical standards, but when it comes down to it they are deceitful, backstabbing, and extremely immoral. They will go out of their way to promote incompetent, unqualified people to the position based off of certain backgrounds and connections. They will look you in the face and blatantly lie to you and manipulate situations to their liking. Most of the management teams across the entire company are completely uneducated and unqualified to hold their positions and they have no clue how to run a successful team. The sad part is upper management allows this to happen and will back the brown nosing followers who fit their "mold." If you have ambition, are highly educated and have high moral standards avoid this company at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. You hire people for management that have no business being there and then completely ignore their atrocious leadership skills. You manipulate everyone that works for you into thinking your way is the right way and completely ignore people who work their tails off...the right way. Your company has completely lost it's direction and morality in the last 7 or 8 years and it's due to the upper management. Incompetence and deceitfulness will eventually catch up with you. You're not better than everyone else, no matter how much you want to believe it. Your little cult is bound to implode, just keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Great place to start a career in the financial services industry. Growing at a good pace, lots of opportunity for advancement in areas that suit your interest, great team of support.

    Cons

    Just like any large organization that is growing at a fast pace, it is hard to have all the right people hired in the right place at the right time. There are some branches that are managed by a manage-up type manager. I mean a manager that is more concerned with how good they look to their boss, rather than developing their people to let that performance speak for itself. It is still every man for himself, and certain people aren't the best representation of the company, but that will happen anywhere you go.

    Advice to Management

    I think you have a lot of talent at the branch level that goes under appreciated. I fear that you will lose some significant talent, followed by member loyalty by having certain "management cliques" that just aren't for everyone.

    Pros

    Company is a great place to get learn with training wheels. Nice perks like buying lunch and cute gifts for Christmas.

    Cons

    After looking else where, this was the lowest paying salary in the region for me. I was quite surprised. The perks were great but they didn't justify the low pay. With such rapid growth has been growth pains. If you have a degree and are willing to move out of Idaho I suggest you do it if you already have experience. The work was soul crushing as well.

    Advice to Management

    Management does a great job keeping people happy and it has been rated the best place to work in Idaho. However, that doesn't pay the bills. I'm not sure I need to give advice, they do a great job keeping pay down by providing other incentive. Great job in that aspect.

    Pros

    Great people, management, benefits, and amazing resources! They have a very unique and interesting interview method that almost guarantees you will get placed in a position you will love!

    Cons

    Favoritism, while minimal, definitely exists here, to grow with the company you have to win over management.

    Pros

    Flexible, educates you on your job, excellent training.

    Cons

    Will always find a way to get more out of you than they actually pay you for. They have a tier system for training that will have you spending a lot of time outside of work acheiving, unpaid. Seems rather excessive a bit unethical for hourly employees.

    Pros

    Good benefits. I enjoyed the team I worked with.

    Cons

    They tell you to become part of the community so I did. I bought a house got my family settled and then after being promoted to branch manager 2 months later they asked me to quietly resign. With no reasons of what I did wrong. But to work for another month. Little did I know they had a replacement within 24 hours of forcing me to leave. It was Some young thing without a family to care for. So if they say they are family oriented that is a bunch of bull. Good luck!

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employee. If you claim you are going to train and coach someone, then do it. Don't promote someone and make them think they are doing well and then can them with no explained reasons.

    Pros

    Management actually cares about the employees and there is plenty of room for advancement. The benefits are amazing and pay is great. It is the largest group of amazing people possible. I never thought that I would actually love my job!!!

    Cons

    There is nothing that I would change about the way this company operates!

    Advice to Management

    Don't change the way you do things. I will be there until I retire and I know that I will always love being employed with ICCU.

    Pros

    Upper management cares about employees, for the most part.
    Good salary
    Decent benefits
    Community involvement
    Growing all of the time

    Cons

    Politics get in the way of employees performing their best. Politics also gets in the way of personal life when you're wanted at some event going on outside of work.
    If you don't have a good manager, then this place can suck big time.
    The VP of IT is a bully and manages by intimidation. Nothing is ever done about it so that department wont get any better until he leaves. (another review posted here about IT management hit the nail on the head.
    Work/Life balance - stems from a demanding manager forcing employees to work extra hours and from home.
    Internal surveys done to help improve departments are a sham. You are urged to rate favorably. This is especially apparent when the "Best place to work" survey comes out every year.
    Company values aren't followed to the fullest.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to makes sure they stick to the company values, and make sure other managers are too.
    Take care of IT. That place is a mess and it comes from one person.
    Make sure employees have a good balance of work/personal life.
