I worked at BECU

Pros

Good work schedule, people are generally friendly, good support for continuing education.

Gary Oakland (CEO) is a wonderful man.

Cons

Upper management has a serious problem with some of line managers' actions and treatment of their employees that have led to higher-than-normal turnover in the rest of the organization, yet refuse to kick them out the door.

Performance feedback (which influences how much of an annual bonus you get) varies highly based on the department you're in. Some departments have people you've never worked with rate you, which is obviously based on their impression of you (or what they've heard).

Maturity level of staff can also vary widely based on the area you're in...go in with caution.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1. Have a consistent performance feedback system throughout the organization to make it fair and do NOT allow those who do not work directly with an employee to rate them.

2. Remove managers who've caused high turnover.

    I have been working at BECU

    Pros

    Lots of vacation time, education reimbursement, opportunity to volunteer, benefits and pay are good

    Cons

    Very hard to move up and meet performance standards and production numbers are unrealistic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ease up on your frontline staff, we do a lot and it feels like the production and performance expectations just keep getting harder to achieve.
