Our employees are the foundation of our success. We emphasize employee engagement and provide opportunities for personal and professional growth. Our ongoing performance management and training programs focus on strengths-based employee development in a high-performance environment.
We offer a competitive compensation package, including comprehensive health benefits with company-paid vision and HSA contribution, generous paid time off, 401(k) with company match, discounted banking products, and even pet insurance discounts.

I have been working at Alliant Credit Union full-time (Less than a year)
Alliant is more than just a job. They make you feel important from day one, your never just a number. On top of having a very comfortable work environment Alliant offers great benefits including medical and paid time off. Alliant really tries to make even the littlest attempts to make work enjoyable by caring about your personal health and simply being comfortable working at a desk all day!
I honestly cannot think of one con.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Alliant Credit Union (Chicago, IL) in January 2017.
I was contacted by the recruiting team. I had 2 phone interviews, and final interviews in person. I flew back to Chicago for final round interviews which really gave me a solid understanding of the organization, culture, leadership, etc.
