    Former Employee - Financial Services Representative in Hauppauge, NY

    I worked at Teachers Federal Credit Union full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Full timers get every other Saturday off, and every sunday off.
    Each year there is a longevity bonus given to FT & PT
    Easy daily tasks
    great place to work during college, or right out of high school while you still live at home...$$$

    Cons

    PT employees are treated very different than FT, sort of similar to "the help".
    no commission, yet a huge push for sales recently
    very political with promotions...not based solely on merit
    HIGHLY micro managed
    Compensation...enough said

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Include lower level employees on the review of the branch managers to get a more clear understanding of daily life inside of each branch, some managers refuse to take responsibility for their errors and simply place those mistake on other employees which effects their review.

    Also, there is very little consistency between the branches regarding policy. Use your branch support to compile this information to really see how different branches are interpreting policy.

    Pros

    Excellent place to work while attending college, given the great flexibility with hours.

    Cons

    The management was very conservative and dry. Repetitive office functions were stall and provided very little insight into anything deeper.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up a little, show the employees its more than just a job. Try to get them motivated to help others.

    sweat shop with no overtime

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Teachers Federal Credit Union

    Pros

    good benefits, great people

    Cons

    the company is too top heavy, not enough people on the bottom to support the top. HR is not safe, you cannot go there and speak to them about another employee, it always comes down and the next thing you know your fired...because you complained that an VP was using harsh wording with you......

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop making your employees feel like the scum under your shoe. you may want to start looking at why your employees are so unhappy and then they might want to actually work for you

    Learn how to treat and speak to your employees respectfully.

    Pros

    Great benefits, college reimbursement program

    Cons

    Interdepartmental fighting, executives seem not to care about the well being of their employees, little room for advancement after achieving entry level supervisor positions, senior executives seem to fight amongst each other

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency is needed from the top down in order for the culture and morale to improve.

    Pros

    Better than average pay. Lots of community involvement.

    Cons

    Some employees get promoted to positions that they can't handle, or shouldn't have gotten. More or less if you've put in a lot of years, they'll promote you because of that rather than if you can really, TRULY perform the job. (Not all the time, but so far thats what I've seen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When promoting employees, they should consider their EDUCATION (any degrees) not just experience.
