Varied and valuable work experience which provided great job satisfaction.
Relationship Manager - High Risk Accounts (Former Employee) –  Spokane, WAMarch 5, 2018
Primary job functions included meeting with high risk borrowers to improve credit risk and mentor less experienced staff. Additional experience included numerous credit reviews and audits of all lending functions for this diverse $8.0B lender. Overall this 17 year employment provided valuable and rewarding lending experience.
Pros
Personally rewarding lending experience with good benefits.
Cons
Revised Management lending philosophy on high risk customer relationships.

Financial Specialist II (Current Employee) –  Left blankJanuary 19, 2018
Great place to work overall. Only two reasons I’m looking elsewhere.
1. The only health insurance options are high deductible plans with an HSA.
2. No advancement opportunities without at least a bachelors degree.
Pros
Good flexibility
Cons
No advancement without a degree

Family Matters
Former Employee (Former Employee) –  Spokane, WAOctober 19, 2017
Many children of executives working in the same division as their parent. If you aren't related to someone there, you will not have the same attention or treatment. Expect your personal and work matters to be the topic of dinner table discussion between the mothers daughers and others who work in the same insurance department. There is a nepotism coverup happening in this company.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Nepotism

Over the years, Northwest Farm Credit has purchased a number of successful, family-owned crop insurance agencies. Following the acquisition, we ensure that no employees are supervised by family members; we are committed to maintaining fair treatment of, and respect for, all employees.

This is a great place to work with amazing people.
Administrative Employee (Current Employee) –  Spokane, WAJune 9, 2017
This is a great place to work with amazing people. After working for commercial banks for many years, I’m continually struck by the great culture here at Northwest FCS. There’s a shared sense of purpose and community with great customers/owners, employees, and board members. This is the first place I’ve ever worked where board members regularly appear and mingle with staff during luncheons.
Pros
People, Work, Benefits
Cons
Expectations for quality are high and the work can be challenging, but I consider this to be rewarding.

Great company with friendly culture
Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) –  Pacific NorthwestMay 31, 2017
This is a really good company. The compensation package is competitive; benefits and paid time off are definitely generous. I especially like the extra paid time for volunteer work in the community, and the 401k plan. There are really good managers here who are extremely dedicated to their employees' success, with very few exceptions (every company has a few people who shouldn't be managing but are). The culture here includes a strong work ethic and there are some incredible and inspirational people in this organization. The company is fair but unapologetic for having high expectations.
Pros
Great coworkers, investment in training, nice facilities, jeans dress code
Cons
Not a deal breaker but some technology is in catch up mode, and a few employees seem to be coasting

Northwest Farm Credit is an amazing place to work. The executive management staff truly cares about its' employees and their success.

I was a part of the developing Country Loan Home Program and learned so much information on what goes into residential agricultural and compliance perfection.

Relationship Manager VP Country Home Loan Division (Current Employee) –  Beaverton, ORSeptember 12, 2012
Employees that truly care about the service that is provided to their customers. The most significant item that I learned from this employer is portfolio banking and managing my portfolio. The hardest part of this job is my customers disapointment from the appraisals, and calling a customer in regards to their account being passed due.
Pros
flexible hours
Cons
intense work load and hours
