Great Place

Great place. Rates are pretty low on all accounts, but no fees accounts, great local employees. Can't go wrong versus your large banks.

Unfortunately for PCU, I keep my savings at Alliant, but I have my checking and car loan through them. I live close to a branch. I would recommend them to anyone (locally for sure). They are part of the shared branch system too.
