    Pros

    Good experience and pay is ok for the city

    Cons

    Lower level employees are clueless, feels like your doing way more than everyone else

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at who really is doing the work and fire who isn't, nothing wrong with firing people who deserve it.

    I worked at GECU full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The hours were great while working there, the co-workers were very sharp and kind

    Cons

    Promoting younger, less experienced workers? What is sad is that people are leaving this good company to find professional growth elsewhere. Those that have less experience are getting promoted or they hire those from the outside? Not sure what the reasoning is behind that. More experienced workers can bring in so many new ideas that would allow you to grow more. Supervisors claim that are wanting you to move up but make little effort to make it happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote people in your institution not based on brown nosing but based on hard work. Saw too much favoritism, made me loose faith in management. If you promoted people that deserved it then the morale would be much higher. This quote summarizes it all "The fastest way to succeed it to help others succeed"

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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to move up in organization. Excellent training programs for each position, and lots of cross training opportunities.

    Cons

    Lots of change. Could end up working incredibly far from home. Some inconsistency between branches, which takes some adjusting, but overall great company.

    Pros

    The best part of this job are the hours

    Cons

    Limited opportunity for career growth. Most employees have been there for years and do not leave their positions quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take an inventory of the current employees you have and utilize their skills extensively. Their is so much untapped talent in your organizations which is the reason employees leave.

    GECU is a great place to work, learn, a job while in school. GECU is not a large company where growth is the sky.

    Current Employee - Member Specialist in El Paso, TX

    I have been working at GECU

    Pros

    A great place to work, but if you are looking a big company where growth is endless and fast pace GECU is not for you. Good benefits, job realibility, and great environment.

    Cons

    The only bad thing I can think of is that is such a great job that employees need to wait until others retire for opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everything is great

    I have been working at GECU full-time

    Pros

    Good inexpensive benefits. Good work/home life balance. As a credit union, they actually care about the members (customers). You feel like you are able to give back to the community by educating them about their finances and providing information that helps them make good financial decisions.

    Cons

    Too many changes in the organization in too short of a period. Unclear goals and constantly changing direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allocate operating costs correctly so you can have a more clear picture of what works and what doesn't in the organization, so you know where to focus the investment.
