    They will milk you for every ounce of production and never give you a raise.

    ProsGood medical and vision benefits for the employee, but not dependents. I was fortunate to hire and work with great employees, but management and above is a complete joke.

    ConsProvident Credit Union does not have the credit union mentality at all! They do not appreciate their employees and do not do much to support their communities. Upper management openly states their philosophy that any employee is replaceable but then is angry at the high rate of turnover. No matter how well you do, you are always under the microscope and the company will always demand MORE MORE MORE. They will carry as few staff as possible and demand an unreasonable amount of sales production from each employee - the sales goals go up every year and the compensation goes down. Many of the sales goals contradict each other so it is virtually impossible to meet all your goals, making it impossible to avoid scrutiny from upper management. Salaried employees are expected to work 10 hours a day and sometimes 6 days a week. Good luck actually being able to use your PTO. Also, they do not give annual raises. The only way to get a raise is to get promoted (an extremely difficult feat since they do not promote within), and if you do manage to get a promotion, you will likely regret taking it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn how to value your employees. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Stop managing by fear.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Unethical

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood credit and financial services benefits as well as healthcare

    ConsCompnay tries to act like they are a fortune 500 company and can't understand why they can't compete with the BofA's Chase and other similar companies. From the top down, management manages by fear, they never support you (regardless if you perform your fiduciary responsiblities in the best interest of your staff and the organization as a whole). Seems like HR and executives are blind to what happens within their branches or turn a blind eye. Huge turn over rate at the branch level and when you ask your direct manager for help it is sometimes look at as a challenge tot them or they question you back - because they don't know the answer themselves. Career opportunities for advancement do not exist.

    ProsThey have great benefits and Opportunity to grow.

    ConsNot easy to get promoted and it may take years before they finally decide to do so. Communication from senior management to management is very limited and causes problems at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter communication between upper and lower management to avoid confusion and issues.
