    Pros

    Company 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.

    Cons

    Highly 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 ManagementAdvice

    Show 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.

    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.
