    I worked at Bank-Fund Staff Federal Credit Union

    Pros

    Great work life balance. I joined out of college and was really impressed with the amount of time off. The leadership was very supportive of growth opportunities. Able to apply for new roles after only six months. I found the HR Staff very helpful, and the 401K plan was amazing. Over 50% of all of the leaders were either a minority or a woman, so it was a place where I could see myself growing based on my abilities. As a minority, I would strongly recommend this place to others.

    Cons

    Training is less hands-on than I like, so most of my training was conducted on the job. Too many long time underperforming employees still in entry level jobs. They are bitter and a bad influence on new staff members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move the negative employees out of the company. They are not adding value and spend their entire day talking about how they have been wronged, instead of taking ownership for their own career development.

    Pros

    Benefits. They were decent but the decreasing as time goes by.

    Cons

    Upper management is a joke. What you learn in training hardly relates to job duties. The pay is not good in comparison. Like everything else in life you live and you learn. I do not recommend

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is not a boot camp treat your "essential" employees with some respect.

    Pros

    Best company when it comes to vacation and 401(k). But you'll be using your vacation time because of the stress of the work place. See "con".

    Cons

    Incompetent staff are being rewarded or promoted; never been reprimanded. Staff who are competent or excel at their position are assigned more work from the incompetent staff and supervisors and never promoted. Supervisor would rather put a member complaint in their voice mail than take the call and diffuse the situation. Some management have no consideration and loudly discuss inappropriate topics such as race, sexual contents and disability (just to name a few). Don't bother going to HR; managers and supervisors are protected! Whether or not you're in management's "click", if you're not a supervisor or manager, they'll keep using you until you are completely burned out. Board members need to visit unexpectedly because management and supervisors will put a "let's pretend everything is GREAT" face. Don't bother filling out member surveys because management and supervisors hide the negative feedback and only hand in good feedback to present to the board.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You all need to be fired! And if you want to promote a sales environment to a staff not used to being a "used car salesman", you need to find better training and incentives than "fake dollars" which are never redeemed. Hire supervisors which knows the job of their staff! And quit blaming the CEO about a decision to promote an undeserving staff member and tell staff that it was not your decision.

    Pros

    The people really are nice no matter what area you are in. It's great to work downtown and be a part of the World Bank culture (although we don't work for the WB). The benefits are great, seriously the best I've ever had in any job. A lot of the younger employees who are just out of college don't know how good they have it.

    Cons

    Though the pay seems low to some, the year end bonus helps bring it up to match other companies. It's a small organization, so you have to hang in there and wait for the right position to open up in order to grow, but I've seen it happen a lot for friends. Good work gets rewarded here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The cost cutting measures seem to be going to a bit of an extreme, though I admit I am not part of the management team who would know what happens in the budget meetings.

    Pros

    Benefits were good, but we're being changed. On a previous review some idiot stated that some individuals need to look in the mirror.......take your own advice. You are one of the people MOST folks on this sight are talking about. Management have a Paula Dean outlook on life........

    If you really look at the history of management you will see it all. Most have committed affairs (internally) which explains how tight and committed they are and why certain individuals are being promoted...They turn good people bad, strong people weak, trustworthy to non trustworthy.

    Cons

    There are too many secrets being hidden for that organization to move forward. People don't do what is right or what is expected.....they do what THEY feel they need to do to keep their job. You have supervisors and directors having affairs. They think the staff did/does not know but they are sadly mistaken. Promotions are not based on hardwork.....its rather based on if management feels as if they can trust you to be corrupt

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a good look at Congress because that is how some of your employees look at you. They really resent you but are to afraid to admit it. The truth will come out one day. All of the lies and corruption will all come out one day and you all (that are corrupt) will face the repercussions you put out there. You all were "trolling" around Breed, smiling in his face and look where he is now. The proof is out that several of you guys had A LOT to do with his demise....... Just because someone was fired does not mean they deserved it. Just because someone was let go because of poor performance does not mean they did not give their all. Staff is constantly let go but management remains the same........that's crazy!!

    Management need to be replaced. The new CEO need to really examine his staff past and make changes from there. No Director should be allowed to have an affair with a supervisor........

    This is a great place to work. The managers and human resources department DO care. They are kind and caring.

    Pros

    Great environment. Great people. Great location in the city. Easy to get to.

    Cons

    People that are complaining on this post are folks that need to look in the mirror. Clearly, they have either been fired or are poor performers. Managers don't fire employees. Employees fail and they have to be let go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the kind supportive style. There are one or two directors that need to be more hands on and involved. Additionally some decisions for key people seem to be made on who is friends with the COO.

    Benefits! Benefits! Benefits! Benefits! Benefits!

    Cons

    Only those who are in the "In Crowd" get the opportunities. HR feels those who have been with the credit union longer should get the opportunities over those who may have more talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had great hope in the new CEO ... I've been sorely disappointed.

    My colleagues were great! It was nice to work in an international environment and learn about different cultures.
