    I have been working at Bethpage Federal Credit Union full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good co-workers and opportunities for advancement. It's a credit union so it has inherent advantages since it is not publicly held and is owned by the membership. This structure allows for longer term thinking. I haven't worked at other credit unions but I hear they can be a sleepier. This is not a sleepy company. Bethpage is community minded.

    Cons

    I won't call it a con but the credit union is focused on growth so it can be a challenging environment.

    I have been working at Bethpage Federal Credit Union full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good ethics. they care about the members. encouraged to learn. training is open to anyone. good benefits. excellent 401k. double match 3% of your contribution and then match another 4% meaning if you put in 7% they put in 10% of your gross paycheck. Making only 14 an hour, my 401k had 15k after roughly 2 and a half years.

    Cons

    Being the number one loan salesman in the entire company, I thought I'd be able to get a promotion. Especially since my title was "teller" but I also was taking loan applications and opening accounts right on the teller line. Doesn't matter what you know, it matters who you know. So network and suck up!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize talent prior to the exit interview.

    Pros

    BFCU allows its employees plenty of opportunities to move up and around in the company but it's mostly in the branch since they are always opening up new branch on the Island.

    Cons

    If you're not good at selling this job isn't for you. Regardless of how proficent you may be at your job it seems they focus solely on sales.
