    There is no work life balance

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Bethpage, NY

    ProsI can't think of one. You get free food sometimes.

    ConsEverything is a knee jerk reaction,No plan, they want to double their size every 5 years but they don't like to hire people. They have outsourced other departments. Listen to your employees, you are going to have service issues and quality issues if you continue on this path.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more people, don't put out fires all the time, have a plan!!

    Good company to work for, though your job might be boring

    Branch Operations (Current Employee) Bethpage, NY

    ProsCompany has a lot of convenient locations across the island, most of the jobs are pretty straight forward with respect to responsibilities. The organization is a not-for-profit meaning you don't have to push selling as much as would be the case with a bank. The organization still runs as a business though. Revenue is generated both through loans and fees.

    Benefits are good. full-timers get health insurance, part-timers are enrolled on a discount program, allowances are made for weight loss and partial reimbursement for gym memberships. Some college tuition reimbursement. Annual bonuses if the organization meets its goals for the year.

    ConsHighly repetitive nature of the jobs, especially on the teller side. In branches with limited staff, getting to take earned vacation time can be downright impossible. Many branch managers and senior executives are hired from the outside and don't have a clue how the organization works. A few of them have been fired for being insubordinate, not wanting to learn how to do their job or not bending over backwards for members.

    Some branch managers have a really bad attitude. Either too cocky or excessively confrontational. Make one comment that could be misinterpreted and it comes back to haunt you. Some days branches get really slow and am employee may feel like there is nothing to do.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShow more of a humanistic side toward employee treatment. Right now people leave and the turnaround for getting a qualified person trained and going is somewhat high. In some cases once a branch manager leaves, a replacement doesn't start for several months afterward.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
