    Former Employee - Loan Origination in Indianapolis, IN

    I worked at FORUM Credit Union full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It was nice to help so many people with loans for cars, vacations, or other needs people had. Most of the people I worked with were very easy to work with. The customers were very pleasant too. I had a chance to advance from a teller.

    Cons

    In the phone in loan department, there were times where we were required to come back in the evening and make out bound solicitation phone calls to current customers.

    Pros

    Great products for members and provides good member service. Decent benefits. May be a good job for those fresh out of college but not a long term thing. Decent pay.

    Cons

    They put you where they want to on the retail side of the company. No room for growth unless they're ready for you to progress. So word of advice, don't do well at your job or you can't get promoted and they overwork the knowledgeable employees. They want you to work where it benefits them, so if your new desired position doesn't benefit them, forget about it. Management nitpicks every little thing which becomes extremely tiring. Anyone outside of retail snubs their nose at you and most likely doesn't even know your name or which branch you work at. Company policies are very inconsistent and differ from branch to branch. All in all, this company is very disorganized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get organized.

    Pros

    Large amount of vacation/paid time off depending on length of time with company. Headquarters building has good professional atmosphere.

    Cons

    Little to no advancement opportunities. No opportunities for those that perform above average and exceed expectations. Company policies don't seem to be uniform across different departments.

    Pros

    the pay is nice (I was in collections), they had nice bonuses and the location was great.

    Cons

    the management is terrible esp in Collections. the pay is not worth the crap they make you put up with. the hours were also terrible and they dont take you into consideration at all. its all about what works for them that week.

    A great place to get some experience, but not for long term careers

    Pros

    The pay for tellers is above industry standard, but management is underpaid and leaves little to aspire to. The employee development is great, but that is because they develop employees into underpaid management

    Cons

    Constant change is difficult to keep up with, excessive workload even on hourly employees, need to play into politics to advance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise salaries to retain lower and middle management and to make building a career more attractive, but 35k for an assistant branch managers responsibilities leaves little to be desired
