      Advice to Management

      Take the time to know your staff better. Trust goes a long way and if staff knows they can depend on you, moral will climb upwards and people stay where they feel valued

      I worked at Grow Financial full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Everything is great within your first year or two. I’ll start off with the pros. Majority of the people who work at Grow are great and so friendly. The benefits are probably some of the best - great healthcare and 6% match 401K. They value work life balance which is nice too. I think it really depends on which department you work in. Some departments have great leadership and team members.

      Cons

      Sadly, it usually takes one bad egg (marketing leader) to turn a great work environment into a toxic one. Toxic as in -creating a divide between their own department on purpose, playing favoritism, not showing up to meetings, and making rude comments. It was always very frustrating to have passion for your work and trying to give your expertise to help benefit the company to find out that leadership doesn’t trust it’s...

      I worked at Grow Financial full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Grow Financial really does display the "team" environment across all departments (see cons for the one exception). Grow Financial team members care about the communities they serve, the credit union is big on sponsorships and the Tampa Bay area. The benefits are pretty great - they'll give you 2% in your 401k and match you up to 6% so you have the potential of receiving 8% from the credit union. They also pay for your...

      Cons

      The c-suite is very unaware of the important issues affecting the departments individually and the issues affecting the relationships between departments. The board doesn't showcase a breadth of diversity. The way they calculate bonuses and raises isn't really fair. One "bad egg" department (Marketing) affects the whole of the credit union. This is one department that could use some drastic management changes.

      Advice to Management

      Look into the Marketing department more closely to evaluate what may be the issue there. With this department's unwillingness and inability to work with other departments, and just as important, to work among themselves, they'll continue to flounder.

      Pros

      Coworkers were just awesome people.

      Cons

      Management is very luring and fake. Soaks up all your knowledge and then discards you. They are the definition of southern sweet. (Nice to your face and stab you in the back when you walk away.)

      Advice to Management

      Treat others as you would want to be treated and how you would treat those you care about.
