Senior management is so busy covering their butts that they don’t hesitate to blame subordinates for all of the woes of the organization. Be prepared to find yourself without a job on a moment’s notice because it’s easier for them to make “strategic” changes than it is for them to admit their own inability to manage. The members are no longer the focus of the credit union, and are starting to realize that the “bottom line” is king. The credit union philosophy is a joke here, at least the banks are honest and up front with their purpose. Before accepting any position ask very serious questions about why so many people are no longer with Northern, ask how many that were employed 3 years ago (or longer) are not there and ask what was the main reasons for leaving. Ask if they have recently conducted employee satisfaction surveys and if the results were shared with staff. Remember, they will be asking you many questions to determine your “fit” with senior management - you should ask your own so that you are not disappointed later.
Take every opportunity to learn as much as you can about credit unions and this financial industry.
Very poor Senior Management.
