    Get professional managers!!!! Look for managers that know how to lead people, show respect and give feedback. I rarely if ever got any feedback and I had several different managers.

    I have been working at United Nations FCU full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work-life balance (depending on department and manager), free gym on-site, excellent benefits, pension, 401K match.

    Cons

    Room for advancement is extremely limited. The company is trying to expand but is limited by the charter. Politics can lead to termination. The once great benefits are slowly being taken away.

    I worked at United Nations FCU full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The pay is excellent in comparison to other credit unions. The paid time off earning is also great. Company is small, so you do not feel impersonal. You can at least know everyone's name and their department. Environmentally friendly as well.

    Cons

    Certain departments are not as fortunate as others, The call center is extremely hard to get time off when needed. If you don't like the possibility of getting a late shift and hardly ever getting the vacation time you want (which you earned and have available for use) then don't go into the call center.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the call center they are crucial to your success as an organization. When there are unhappy employees you wont succeed.

    Casual job good to great benefits. Most of the people are friendly enough

    Cons

    Money isn't always right and the chances to move up may seem limited depending on your stance in the company to begin with. Stay clear of MDS if you want to have a life outside of work

    I worked at United Nations FCU full-time

    Pros

    Vacation time, you get paid like any other job in the world

    Cons

    You are dealing with a politics driven company not an idea driven one. If you speak your mind, managers will make sure that your career there is ruined. It's not so much the amount of work you do, as it is the lack of respect you get for it. You'll be given impossible deadlines simply because they don't care about their employees. Despite all of HR's "training" you will be in shock with what people get away with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some management courses or read a few books on leadership. One thing that makes you realize we have basic human rights doesn't defy your pathetic sense of authority.
