    I have been working at 3 Rivers Federal Credit Union full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have been encouraged to learn and take initiative, and given opportunities to get training to push past my current position and define new boundaries for it. While my title is one thing, I actually am a much higher trained individual thanks to 3Rivers, and it makes me a better employee as well.

    Cons

    The medical and dental insurance leaves a lot to be desired, but I think that may be a trend throughout the country and not specific to 3Rivers.

    I worked at 3 Rivers Federal Credit Union full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pros include opportunity to advance (I worked here for 2 years and was promoted twice), caring management (always encouraged me to tell them what goals were, even if not with 3 Rivers), great hours (hard to beat being paid to take holidays off and never working Sundays), and welcoming environment (managers and most co-workers were team-focused and easy to make friends with).

    Cons

    I felt like certain behaviors "slipped through the cracks", so to speak, when it should have been addressed. Bad attitudes, excessive breaks, inability to do one's job, and throwing tantrums are unacceptable in a professional work environment. If there was a reason it was being tolerated, it should have been communicated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage branch management to communicate to their staff. Communication will build an organization and the lack of it will tear it down.

    Pros

    Good company from all the research I did.

    Cons

    Just as an FYI, background and education checks are done prior to interview. I knew I would have no problem there but these are typically done at a later stage. On the day of my interview HR calls me on a cell phone and puts it on speaker phone as there was another person there! You could not hear her nor the other person. I told her that and she did not respond to it. They give you no chances to ask questions after the interview nor give you time to comment further about your skills. A very unprofessional way of doing an interview for a senior position role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instruct your HR department to NEVER do important phone interviews on a cell phone much less doing it also with a speaker phone. It does not do the candidate a benefit nor you as you may have lost your best candidate this way.-

    I worked at 3 Rivers Federal Credit Union full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay was decent. Most jobs are placed internally so there is room for growth but you need to be good friends with management to get them. Good hours and family time.

    Cons

    They keep non devoted employees who talk bad about the company to whoever will listen which makes work annoying. You have to be close with management to get anywhere in the company and the insurance is not even worth your time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on developing your devoted employees and work on getting rid of the negative ones to up the mood overall for everyone. Give everyone a chance to shine and stop focusing on your "friends"

    I worked at 3 Rivers Federal Credit Union full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Most of the staff is very dedicated to their work and to serving the membership.

    Cons

    There are significant power-brokers at the highest levels. If they don't like you, you'll soon be gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful who you listen to. Not all of the advice received is good for the company. Stop the politics and make this a better company. It has so much potential.

    Healthcare plan could be a lot better (very expensive)!

    Pros

    Review process is fair and no surprises.

    Cons

    Senior Management has issues in communication. Changes seem to be made just to make change because the reason is not communicated properly.

    Pros

    - Great Products
    - Good Benefits
    - Flexible work schedule

    Cons

    - Senior Management not visible enough
    - Change Management is not always followed through (alot of projects are stoped and not completed - Poor Project Management Skills)

    - Computer system very unstable and always crashing ( not IT fault but equipment limitations)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you are visble and approchable to your staff. Tour your locations for meet and greets, instead of only showing up when there is a problem.
