I have been working at BECU

Pros

Boeing Employees Credit Union offers a stable, supportive work environment. Work/life balance is of great importance and is a key benefit. Employees are courteous and helpful to one another. The training on new products and new procedures is helpful and the training departments is one of the highest performing in the company. The Boeing Employees Credit Union always treated their members with respect, courtesy, and great service. I found this attention and devotion to the members to be a constant at all levels and functions throughout the company.

Cons

Career advancement and development could be improved. Investing in people and helping to identify key contributors with appropriate recognition and feedback are weaknesses as well. I found the company lacking in presenting its strategy and vision to front line employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Seek to keep front line employees more informed of the overall company strategy and positioning.

    I worked at BECU

    Pros

    There are a lot of good people there. Some of the investment-side work can be lucrative (if you can get it). There are some good leaders who know how to make things exciting. BECU is committed to finding new ways to bring more to its members. BECU's customer products are constantly being updated with new features and enhancements to help customers receive more benefits and have a better experience managing their BECU accounts. This makes the atmosphere a bit better than it is at some other places (when working with customers). It's a much better place to work than some of the alternatives in the industry.

    Cons

    You probably won't get extremely rich. You may not get too much fulfillment from your work, depending on where it is you work and whom you work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget to talk to people and be willing to implement their input.

    I worked at BECU full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -4 weeks PTO
    -ethical organization to work for
    -great benefits

    Cons

    -no sick leave, any time you take off due to sickness is counted against your attendance
    -sales goals are not achievable except by the select few who will get the "right" member to get more loans
    -working Saturday's
    -not enough staff, there is always a 30-60 minute wait daily
    -high turnover
    -very poor pay
    -unless you have prior experience, it seems almost impossible to advance to a different position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate Member Consultants more competitively. They are the ones who bring in the members for the rest of the organization to have jobs. Restructure PTO to include sick leave that will not go against attendance. Hirer more staff and pay them better so they stay longer. Educate members that they can go to the branch nearest them for anything-they don't have to go to Everett or Tukwila to do a car loan, etc. Allow Member Consultants to grow into other positions on the back end.
