Alternatives is an innovative CDFI (Community Development Financial Institution) that offers a unique combination of financial and community development services. Chartered in 1979, Alternatives has a successful record serving micro-enterprise, non-profits and the low-income population of Tompkins County, New York.
Alternatives Credit Union is an interesting and pleasant place to work; big enough to offer all the benefits one would expect to find in this industry, yet still of a size that keeps all employees involved in the Credit Union's successes on a personal level. We have a participatory staffing structure with full staff meetings at least twice a month. Communication is enhanced by departmental meetings. Staff participates in decisions that affect their work place. Our broad job descriptions offer each staff person greater latitude to develop, and we back that development with a policy of promoting from within. Every staff member is encouraged to serve on a community board and receives compensation from the Credit Union for doing so.
