      I have been working at Meridian CU full-time

      Pros

      They offer competitive salary, good benefits, flexible work arrangements. I work in Information technology and the V.P. is probably one of the best people I have ever worked for. They promote from within and seem to actually really care about their employees and their members.

      Cons

      Usual cons of working in IT, such as tight deadlines, occasional long days.
