    Pros

    Relaxed employees, easy going mentality, focus on members

    I worked at Premier America Credit Union (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was great to give back to the community by working for a non- profits that cares about member- owners and gives back profits in the form of lower costs and better rates.

    Cons

    I found some of the management to be obsessive over details in a negative way. They should let the marketing professionals do their job. Executives don't need to fuss over font size, alignments and colors. Trusting employees is an issue.

    Pros

    Recognition and promotions for exceptional employees! Large enough to offer career growth, but still small enough that anyone can get noticed! Involved in community activities as an organization. Financially strong and still expanding.

    Cons

    We work really hard -- but it's rewarding.

    Pros

    Nice people, nice building with sun shining.

    Cons

    Too small, I was told department was "small", I thought maybe 10 people, come to find out only 3 people in department, it was kind of misleading to say the least.

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest with people upfront so they don't waste their time thinking their may be growth, not many places to go when the department has three people. Kind of a joke.

    I have been working at Premier America Credit Union full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people at Premier America are among the best in the Credit Union industry. The atmosphere is very friendly and everyone supports each other. There is none of the political infighting and backbiting I've experienced at other organizations.

    Cons

    We run with a lean staff which is great for the bottom line but can be challenging when there are multiple projects and priorities. The upside is that employees get the chance to learn many different areas inside the credit union.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change a thing

    Pros

    Friendly work environment
    Understanding Management
    Flexible with time off
    Stable and Financially Strong company - Much better than competitors
    Employee-Valued culture
    Christmas Parties are fun

    Cons

    Too small of a company too grow
    People stay in their positions for too long - Not much chance for growth

    Advice to Management

    Nothing wrong with management, in fact I think it has a very good Management structure right now. I just think for people who want to move up within the a company for more experience might find it difficult to do so at Premier America. However, its just because of its size, thats all. There is a huge potential for growth in the future.

    Pros

    The only good reason is that you can have a job for life once you get hired. This is obvious by the employees who would all be out of work if they worked anyplace that expected quality.

    Cons

    Management is poor and are behind the times on most issues. Very much an "We've always done it this way" attitude which stifles creativity.

    Advice to Management

    Rather than pay huge salaries and bonuses to CEO's who sell out their employees for personal gain, keep the employees and ditch the greedy management.
