    Good benefits, and rewards employees often.

    Having to spin other departments decisions to members, who have protection of Bureaucracy built up over the years

    Pros

    Best place to work. I hope to never leave! Lots of opportunity to change positions and move up.

    Cons

    Can't really think of any. Working full time sucks in general but most people aren't going to work around that.

    I have been working at CommunityAmerica Credit Union full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement package is nice, good benefits, it's easy to take paid time off, camaraderie is very pleasant at every branch I've worked at, pay is very competitive, 401k match is high.
    My job feels important and meaningful. As a nonprofit, there are a lot of ways I feel we make a difference in people's lives.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for advancement. They tend to treat lateral moves like they are a promotion and get you psyched up about them, but you still have the same pay and title, just at a different location. The company would rather hire externally than internally.
    I know that my direct managers care about me, but as the chain of command goes up, it gets less personable and more corporate when it comes to decision making.
    Working in the grocery store locations is very tough-the hours are long. You have to work holidays and weekends.

    Advice to Management

    You are investing in your employees with tuition reimbursement, coaching, and development. Use that investment for your gain. Hire and promote from within the company.
    The profit sharing program that is being used now is too hard to understand-make enhancements to the program and then make it very easy to understand so that we know what we are working for.

    Pros

    Good starting pay. Great company outlook. CEO is great-meets with employees in small groups to ask what change employees would like to see.

    Cons

    No room for promotion. Company hires external more so than internal.

    Recruiting is very slow, hard to recommend someone for a position.

    Pros

    Good pay for the industry and what they ask you to do. Great benefits that begin day one. They are a growing company and seem to be innovative for the market.

    Cons

    They have grown in a small amount of time. In 2006 the landscape of the organization had a much better feel of which they have somewhat outgrown. Limited career development.

    I worked at CommunityAmerica Credit Union full-time

    Pros

    Not for profit, so work is something to be proud of. Aside from health plan choices, benefits are pretty solid, especially 401k.

    Cons

    The culture is weird. A lot of decisions made based in emotions and like-ability of people involved. Leadership isn't progressive enough. I would say from bottom to top employees are grossly underpaid relative to the market, even with other banks.

    Advice to Management

    Hire and entrust great people and get out of their way. Micromanaging is a problem. Pay your talent.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good company vision. Innovative and on the cutting edge for the banking industry. Good use of technology and focus on millenials. Innovative. Puts members first. Provides hours during normal schedule to volunteer and give back however most employees don't utilize the opportunity because there just doesn't seem to be time. Good pay.

    Cons

    Clicky management groups and departments. Independent thinking is not valued. A lot of sucking up and "yes" people within the management ranks. High turnover at all levels.

    Advice to Management

    Top management needs to connect better with the frontline and face of the credit union.
