    Pros

    Awesome benefits- even to part time employees such as paid time off, tuition reimbursement, healthcare that's AWESOME. Still has sales goals like other financial institutions, but not too pushy about it. Very fair. Has managers that care (at least at my branch) about my success and development. Most people I've met want and encourage growth throughout the company. Lots of opportunities to move up. very flexible when it comes to schedules, I am a full time college student and they make many accommodations for me without any complaint. Also you are rewarded mostly for your success (again, at least at my branch).

    Cons

    Executive management to do not seem to care about what lower level empoyees have to say. Dress code is somewhat restricting of individuality and VERY old fashion. Panty hose required (EW). No finger nail polish colors other than red and neutral colors and no designs. Just stupid petty stuff...

    Advice to Management

    To executive management- LISTEN TO WHAT YOUR EMPLOYEES THINK AND WANT!

    Pros

    Great health benefits starting after 60 days of employment. Sometimes you luck out with a good manager.

    Cons

    Low starting pay. Promotions seem to be based around longevity as opposed to actual skills. There seems to be little regard for paying according to skill level, instead rather how long you've been with the company. Don't expect large pay increases without switching departments.

    Advice to Management

    Review skills of long-time employees who don't think it's important to stay up to date on current practices, but still believe they deserve higher pay.

    Pros

    The pay is OK, just average. I like my location/parking.

    Cons

    Management encouraged us to think outside the box and take the initiative, but when I tried this all I heard was that I needed to submit everything to management for approval. I should be empowered to make some day to day decisions on my own, but it is a very micro-managed kind of company. I cannot wait to find another job and get out.

    Advice to Management

    You are going the wrong direction by adding layers of middle management to micro manage and eliminating creativity at the level that actually knows the process and can create efficiencies.

    Pros

    The members of the credit union. The locations are somewhat convenient.

    Cons

    Lack of training, management is just there to fill a seat. They don't perform, provide adequate feedback, assist in career growth, help their team. Management at the branch level is almost completely invisible. They over promise and under deliver. The bonus is horrible and you can make much more at a credible financial institution. If you don't fit in with their lazy "go with the flow" style and try to be a top achiever, you will be exiled and hated by your peers.

    Advice to Management

    Fire half of your management team. They are just here to collect a paycheck and aren't interested in improving the company. Train your staff accordingly so they can perform their job functions correctly on the first day they sit with a customer. Accept ideas to make this a better place to work (current management fears change and ideas that are outside of the norm).

    Pros

    Decent benefits, management was pretty flexible with my school schedule, most coworkers were friendly, lots of OT which could be a plus or minus for some.

    Cons

    Management is incompetent, executives think they are better then everyone, not much opportunities for advancement, need to kiss a lot of butt to get anywhere.

    Pros

    Flexibility of schedule, outside educational support, independence is setting your tactics to achieve your objectives. The insist you treat all members with respect.

    Cons

    Industry competition and government over-regulation is forcing cost cutting and limited hiring, but that is pretty standard among banks today.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep members as primary focus and continue to support the communities you operate in.
