I worked at CUNA Mutual full-time (More than 5 years)

Bureacracy. High turnover. Many people are focused on the internal workings instead of worrying about the customer.

The organization is getting lazy and arrogent as it did many years ago.

    I have been working at CUNA Mutual as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly and receptive staff. Huge IT department. Very flexible, allowing you to move between departments. Intern projects which matter and are used in production. Huge credit union/coop support. Beautiful sun-lit Atrium. On-campus gym (LifeSite). Cafeteria with delicious food and decent prices. Underground tunnels for days with bad weather. Very laid-back atmosphere -- can basically choose your own hours. Very impressive internship program -- well-structured, very involving, very flexible.

    Cons

    Poor initial communication from HR, but my view of this was completely changed after starting. Lots of meetings, but generally this is beneficial for gaining knowledge about projects and the company in general.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more specific with goals and terminology. I know it's hard to do this when there are so many departments and sub-departments, but many of us were confused with the idea of "Agility."
