    I worked at Credit Union Central of British Columbia full-time

    Pros

    RRSP-matching, great location, performance-based incentive, generous vacation, stable.

    Cons

    No innovation, 'boring banker' mentality, no culture, terrible leadership, a lot of process and overhead, very slow, low pay, no ownership

    Advice to Management

    Hire the right people, don't be afraid to fire the wrong people, cut out inefficiencies to innovate, take ownership, define a culture organically

    I worked at Credit Union Central of British Columbia full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Established comfortable office. Nice view. Some friendly people.

    Cons

    Middle managers running around without clear directions from the top. No clear corporate culture, upper management is in transition. Many long-term employees are hiding below the radar to avoid termination. Low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Clear and frequent communications on work objectives and company direction.

    Pros

    The benefits and extra perks are great, and the location is fantastic.

    Cons

    The attitude of many employees is that it is their 'right' to have many of the privalges that we have at CUCBC. There are quite a few spoiled children working at the company that should be terminated for the way they treat their staff and/or colleagues. Manners and common courtesy are more rare than the sunshine we get in this city!

    Advice to Management

    Stick to a decision once it's been made - if someone is breaking a policy - take action instead of brushing it under the rug until it becomes a more noticible issue.
