    I worked at CommonWealth One Federal Credit Union (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was able to form some great relationships with the members and advise them on accounts, loans and mortgages. I learned a lot and became proficient at helping members and ensuring compliance.

    Cons

    I was not allowed to grow. I was overqualified for my position and my tenured colleagues practiced an active culture of not being helpful . Too much social cohesion created an insular environment that at times was isolating.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to coach your tenured employees to prevent high turnover of new employees. Accountability should apply to all employees, not just new ones.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    There isn't a single one.

    Cons

    There are too many to list. The CEO is a closed minded bigot and if you don't kiss her backside you're gone. Had I known six people had been in my position within a four-year span when she was VP of the department, I would not have signed on.

    Advice to Management

    The board of directors needs to oust the CEO who is dragging the financial institution down with her.
