    Pros

    Managment really cares about their employees. Maybe too much. They do ot like to terminate employees unless they do something horribly wrong. This is good for those people who don't like to work much. Benefits are great, especially if you are looking to go back to school.

    Cons

    Management doens't like to termniate people. There are people that are working their butts off while others just sit and surf the web. It is tough to move up in this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make all employees equal. Both front facing staff and back office staff should be treated evenly. Look at how you market the company. The marketing is still for the older generation.

    I have been working at American Eagle Federal Credit Union full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The credit union has a great leadership team that take care of their employees through education and benefits

    Cons

    It is a small company so you really need to be on top of your game to move into higher positions. There are only so many.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be willing to pay high performing employees instead of making them equal with everyone else in the department. Not everyone deserves the same pay.

    Pros

    Good management team and leadership overall. CEO and EVPs put resources into making sure employees are considered when making decisions. Solid, strong and clear values are communicated throughout the organization.

    Cons

    They are growing into something more than they are today, and they need to make sure all areas are caught up. Some employees are still living the 'old credit union days'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set the example for the behavior you want to see throughout the organization. Lead without micromanaging. And stop talking in circles, it is a waste of everyone's time. Do what you do, and do it well.
