    I worked at Alliance Credit Union full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good financial decisions; credit union is healthy. Former CEO cared deeply about employees and provided opportunities for growth. Employees were allowed to share ideas and make mistakes. Culture was inclusive and accepting. Salaries were ok for Bay Area.

    Cons

    Weak accountability and little leadership development meant some departments/branches suffered. Budgets were always tight and not necessarily spent on the right things. Needs younger board members with leadership experience. New CEO is harsh and rigid; many leaders have left since he came aboard as CFO. Culture will suffer.

    Advice to Management

    People are one asset the organization can't afford to lose. A lot of long-term knowledge will walk out if 1950s style rules are implemented. There's nothing wrong with work being fun and liking the people there.
