    I have been working at BECU full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    BECU is a great company to work for. Great benefits, remote work available and they really encourage work/life balance.

    People who work at BECU work there for a long time. It's a great working environment and employees are very friendly.

    Promoting from within is encouraged.

    I think the pay is pretty fair and on par with other employers in the area

    Cons

    The main headquarters (back office jobs) are in Tukwila, which isn't really close to anywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to develop and promote current employees.

    I have been working at BECU full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Generous PTO, 100% employer paid insurance premium, fun corporate culture

    Cons

    Member consultants are expected to wear many hats. From mortgage applications to IRAs, this role involves intensive training and experience. Retention is an issue because member consultants can leave and do less and get paid more with competitors. I love my team and managers but that's the only reason I stay. Sales goals are not that difficult, longtime employees tend to complain about them and make no effort to perform better. Top performers receive a slightly higher annual bonus than those who don't meet annual goals, since a good portion of payout is based on division and credit union goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay for performance and pay for retention. Attract top performers and pay to keep them and you won't have to spend so much on turnover costs.
