    Pros

    Staff relationships, benefits & compensation, locations

    lack of direction from the top, lack of development for current staff/management, never take a moment to breath, they are always starting something new even before the current stuff is fully implemented

    Advice to Management

    "secrets" are never truly secrets, communication really needs some work

    I worked at Credit Union West full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits and incentive bonuses are great. When I started at the organization, the laid back atmosphere was friendly and inviting. It made work something to look forward to.

    Cons

    Lack of promotion opportunity
    Poor management
    Lack of communication from management
    "Open-door" policy is used against employees

    Advice to Management

    Good benefits and pay do not make up for a lack of integrity. There are no secrets and trying to keep information from employees just makes for a tense and unhealthy atmosphere.

    Pros

    I love my job and can't say enough positive things about the company! I look forward to coming into work each day for new challenges. Employees have strong work ethics and believe in working together to support our members.

    Cons

    The only cons I have are the lack of opportunity for advancement (besides in the branches) and the lack of communication between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Work on improving communication between departments.

    I worked at Credit Union West full-time

    Pros

    Community involvement was encouraged. Benefits were very good. Training was sorely lacking but was improving.

    Cons

    Communication of goals and expectations were unclear until last minute and follow through by VP was inconsistent. VP was clearly was not in the best position to support the CU's best interest. Long hours required to correct VP's shortfalls.

    Advice to Management

    VP's are not infallible and can play the ends against middle. Holding them accountable as well with appropriate checks and balances.
