Pros

WOCCU consists of great people that make the workplace environment enjoyable. The benefits are excellent. Their mission is to help people in poor countries through strengthening credit unions.

Cons

WOCCU is said to be one of the credit union world's best kept secret. They have a lot of goals set and they are good at achieving them. Unfortunately, their reputation is only known in the credit union industry.

In addition, sometimes the left had does not necessarily know what the right had is doing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Providing better communication among the different internal and external business groups will improve the company's ability to deliver consistent products and services.

    I have been working at World Council of Credit Unions, Inc

    Pros

    The work is incredibly satisfying and the intentions of the company are excellent. The people are great, there is free coffee/tea, and everyone really cares about the credit union movement.

    Cons

    Employees work long hours with little pay, especially over the summer during conference time. Company morale is low as a result of understaffing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    So many departments are understaffed, in turn affecting company morale. Consider hiring interns or LTEs to reduce some of the work of employees.

  2.  

    Great potential, mediocre execution.

    Pros

    WOCCU is an organization filled with good people with good intentions. Its undertakes serious and much-needed work throughout the world and its relationships with its member organizations, credit unions, offer it a uniquely sustainable approach to international development.

    Cons

    WOCCU, as a grant-driven niche NGO, doesn't have the right staff to do what donors want and isn't changing fast enough to keep up. Management lacks internal cohesion to make the necessary changes and moral is low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on improving from within by setting standards and holding people accountable. Invite staff to be part of the solution by making them comfortable to speak up.
