I have always wanted to work for the big 4. Found the idea of working with different clients, travel and the learning experience to be exiting . Not sure if this is just in my head and the grass looks greener on the other side . I currently work in program mgmt at Apple and wanted to understand if anyone has made the switch from faang to consulting? Is the pay and lifestyle rewarding. Should I experience this life before I get older ?PwC EY Deloitte KPMG

Supportive environment, great benefits, strives to improve. The last 18 months have been extremely difficult due to the pandemic and NW has done everything to support the employees during this time. NW has some of the hardest working people that I have ever worked with during my careers. The conversion did not go 100% perfectly (and I don't know of any project that does) and they weathered the storm - great job!
Being able to work remotely is not the only thing that makes a company great. I think people put too much emphasis on this only and a lot of the negative comments stem from that one issue. Remember everything else that is good at the credit union!Continue reading

Great Positive Culture, Benefits, and work life balance. CEO really takes pride in investing in the employees.
Love working here. I don't have negative input to provide.

NWFCU has employees who are committed to doing the right thing and who want to help each other be successful. The benefits are very good and I believe the compensation is better than competitors. There are a few really great leaders who are doing their best to keep employees and members happy and engaged. I would follow my Manager and Executive anywhere.
Despite some of the reviews complaining about the CEO, he has done many good things for the Credit Union. The challenge is the blind spots for certain lines of business creating the most problems while being overly critical of the ones trying to keep the ship upright and committed to working together. Employees see this and are angry. The recent systems conversion was really bad. It hurt members, and employees are overwhelmed and leaving every day. There is a history here.Continue reading

There aren’t any that I can think of.
This CU is not going to last much longer with a CEO like this one. Dear Board of Directors, Please do something. I thought the predecessor of the current. CEO was bad. He was a walk in the park compared to the current CEO. The current administration is horrible. All the solid execs have disappeared. There is no trust of any employee. The ENTIRE world is operating effectively remotely but NWFCU will not trust it’s employees because the CEO doesn’t believe that people work from home. He thinks they play video games and sleep. I guess that is what he does so he is projecting that on us. If anyone is reading this and contemplating working at NWFCU, stop and find something else. The place is a tragic state of affairs. The lending Ursula dept is horrific. The NCUA should be contacted. This can’t continue. They operate like the wild Wild West. If you open your mouth and say the truth, they will fire you. This place needs a major over haul. Or if needs for a bigger CU to buy it. It will not survive with the current leadership team.Continue reading

I’ve been at Northwest for years and can truly say I’ve grown so much in my position and have seen a great future as an employee within the organization.
Unfortunately the lack of remote flexibility has me conflicted. I don’t want to leave NW but I have now seen how I can 1) perform my duties successfully on a day to day basis from home 2) enjoy my job AND have an incredible work life balance. Once I began working from home I became the healthiest I’ve ever been in my life… saving money, having time to exercise instead of sitting in traffic for an hour and a half to and from work. There are benefits from offering hybrid remote options for the organization AND the employees. I’m holding on to hope here. I do know NWFCU has NEVER allowed remote work so this is not a surprise. However, this past year has taught the entire world a lot about their capabilities.Continue reading

Great environment, competitive salaries, INCREDIBLE BENEFITS! NWFCU took care of me when I was struggling and protected me through the pandemic. This company continues to look out for its employees. I feel lucky to have been able to work for this incredible organization. Thank you NWFCU!
There is really nothing to complain about!Continue reading

Working from home was a major pro. The call center was one of the only departments that allowed it before the pandemic and continues to allow representatives to work remotely.
The team leads care a lot about the representatives but the buck stops there. We worked the entire pandemic with incredibly high call volumes, took on the work of what should have been collections', went through an online banking conversion with absolutely no thanks. The branches got multiple bonuses. We got nothing. Instead, we got hit with the brunt of a disastrous core conversion that left us with three hour hold times, no support, and overtime. On the launch day of the new system, the branches weren't ready so they were delayed by an hour. But the call center? We were asked to come in an hour before our shifts and stayed at least an hour after every day after. And for our hard work, they sent an email asking us to forego our scheduled breaks.Continue reading

Management & Executives seem to really care about their employees & members. Sales pressure is very little and they allow sales to happen organically. Unlike some of the banks I’ve worked for where the immense pressure has caused stress and health issues. The culture is much better and friendlier here. Plus they care about employees’ opinions! 401K match is at 7% which is unheard of and VERY MUCH appreciated! I personally don’t participate in the health benefits but have heard they’re good.
They’re a little behind on technology overall, and CEO & board are old school and don’t believe in working remotely. PTO is one bucket with both sick leave & vacation, and the number of days are non-negotiable during hiring process.Continue reading
