Not the same as it was here years ago when the culture was truly employee and member focused. Too many gimmicky rate specials that can never lead to long term relationships with Members. Management has been gradually replaced with former bank management (ie TD) and that "results are the only thing that matters" mentality has overtaken Meridian. Unless you have been here for many many years, you don't really have much job security. They are trying to reduce staff and focus on digital banking.Really love dealing with most Members as they are true credit union clients but they too are seeing Meridian turning into a bank as well.Too much animosity and competition within the company (retail, wealth, business banking) all fighting over the same $ to make their scorecard look better for bonuses.
Great Member base to deal with
Turning into a Bank culture of sales and targets
I've been with Meridian for nearlt 10 years and have worked at many different branches. Overall, the company culture is very positive and supportive. It's a great company that encourages and supports advancement.
Lots of little perks, also considerate of family obligations.
Working some Saturdays and evenings..
I can't believe the company let's VP get away with the things they do, not letting people employees leave a department for a better position, VP treating terribly by degrading and berating them to a point that they are in tear, VP is always trying to find something wrong as to find the great things and pointing them out.
Management is not the greatest, no development, no growth, no passion, disorganization, and no support. Mangers care for only what benefits them. The most demotivating environment to work in. Verbally abusive people on a regular day, and management doesnt care, they dont encouragement growth, education or development. She micromanaged and gaslight you.
Pay, and benefits
No work life balance, no development, no positive coaching, no consistency, dead end job
If you actually like not knowing where you sit every day, no advancement, and an operator that has no care or empathy for you, and you like part time, scatterred shifts...your set. Dead end like all call centers. Too small, too dirty, no way I would work there again. There is a reason it is only part time. Your stuck
Benefits right away
Germs, crowds, crammed, not knowing what pc or where you sit at everyday, and sitting in peoples stuff everywhere marking a fiction territory.!
A lot of ad hoc tasks gives you exposure to a lot of fantastic work and opportunities Management is knowledgeable and provides good mentoring Work life balance is a challenge Co-workers are great and provide a tremendous amount of support
Meridian are a traditional Ontario Credit Union seeking to diversify their business model. As such there is an ongoing culture of process and business redesign as they migrate from traditional delivery models.
This company is a little bit slow to promote as it is smaller, however, they support their staff and their members. They are very ethical, always try to do the right thing and provide sa very comfortable work environment always supporting work life balance.
Management provided no support. Management had no integrity& no accountability. Division of time spent being on the front line (on cash) and actually being able to perform my Financial Service Rep responsibilities was not as indicated in Job description. Training is very limited at the Branch level. Nevertheless, one is expected to meet monthly/ yearly goals. Archaic computers and tools of the trade to to your job. Overall, just a bad experience.
Overall experience with the organization was good. There is really not much opportunity for development and advancement, and some people managers are not fully held accountable for their performance or treatment of staff, so there are opportunities to develop the human resources function in the organization to address this problem.
The HR Dept is toxic and very stressful there is no ombudsman if you have a complaint in the HR dept. The management team is a clique so forget about being able to seek help when you have an issue with your manager because you will be complaining to their friend.
Meridian is growing fast but not staffed to handle their growth Their management Team has been over run with EX Big 5 bankers ,who do not uphold the values that made Credit Unions special and Unique .
The floor has a gaming station, relaxation room, treadmill to walk on while working and a work table that raises so you can stand and work. The culture is great and everyone is very helpful. Opportunity to grow can be a little tough as they are small teams but learning opportunities are strongly promoted. Only downside is paid parking really.
Some of the Management staff an employees create a hostile stressful unnecessary, poisoned environment, too pushy on the sales, to me unacceptable, way too much Bureaucracy and stress for the Salary.
