    I worked at United Nations FCU full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work-Life balance is completely under your control here. The company is very involved in the community, especially within the United Nations community. Tact and diplomacy are key. Company parties, bonuses and vacation buy-backs... big perks. generous vacation and sick leave policy.

    Cons

    If you are not versed in corporate politics and patience you will have a hard time here. it is a real career not a simple job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing, it is the right direction; but take a moment to listen the the team on the ground. Keep the member first as you are already doing.

    I worked at United Nations FCU full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Generous salary and benefits for a call center.

    Cons

    This review is only for the Call Center (MDS - Member Directed Services). When I started in 2012, three people including two supervisors either retired or were terminated. As soon as I noticed this I made sure to not stay for too long. In my last year in 2013, seven employees from MDS either left or were terminated.

    This place is politically driven. If you like to say "YES" to everything and smile politely you will be just fine.

    If on the other hand you like to speak your mind with respect to the company, your days are numbered. Eventually you will be notified by HR that there has been an "incident" and it will be noted in your employee file. If you have enough of these you will eventually be terminated as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management of the department needs leadership and people skills. Micro-managing employees will seek them to leave the company at a fast rate. Supervisors have their favorite people they go to and will not involve you in any additional training to improve your skills. Management overall needs a complete overhaul. Everything is reports and numbers driven and they remove the human and social aspect of it which make them cold and callous.

    I worked at United Nations FCU full-time

    Pros

    Working staff is awesome depending on whom you befriend, great benefits and company parties.

    Cons

    You will be worked like a dog (not that there is an issue is that) but will definitely be underpaid in the process, There is a lot of backbiting amongst co-workers. Management is HIGHLY unorganized. HR does NOT care about you. For such a culturally diverse organization they have NO regards towards peoples religious views. Pretty hard to move up internally being that HR picks favorites
    UNFCU in my opinion is a mess, but a great item to add to a CV if you're up for being stressed out all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be more organized; your lack of organization is highly annoying and it reflects on your department(s). Hold more team meeting to keep staff fully informed on on-going projects. Do not make your staff out to be idiots when in fact you (manager) are the idiot :)

    competitive salary, excellent benefits, generous vacation, nice office with gym, laid back atmosphere

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.

    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.
