    I have been working at Wescom Credit Union full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The culture of the company is great. They care about their members (customers) and they care about their employees.

    The benefits are much more generous than what you'd find at other companies and they are always doing little things for the employees to make it a fun place to be - very family oriented. Private evenings at Knott's Berry Farm, family picnic, visits from the In-n-Out truck, all-staff recognition day, etc.

    They are also very concerned about the health and welfare of their employees - great medical insurance, benefits for part time employees, healthy food choices in vending machines, on-site fitness center, bike room to promote riding to work, subsidies to join their MS Bike Team, and they just adopted a tobacco-free environment (no smoking anywhere on their property).

    Cons

    Work load can be heavy at times. Company is focused on controlling expenses which can mean limiting staff increases, even when work volumes begin to increase.

    Not enough opportunity or time to participate in training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and thanks for listening to your employees.

    I worked at Wescom Credit Union part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They worked with my school schedule and paid decent compared to other part time jobs out there.

    Cons

    I originally had a great Manager, but he got sick and his replacement was terrible. People quit left and right (including me), and somehow this Manager got promoted even higher. Go figure. To be honest though, this was never a career for me. It was just a decent job while in college. They also helped pay some of my tuition which was awesome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the dead weight in your ranks. Stop raising member fees. You need to remember the original purpose of the credit union. Seems to get more like a bank every day.

    I have been working at Wescom Credit Union full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They love their employees, and it shows. Everyone is INCREDIBLY friendly and professional. You can't walk down the halls, the parking lot, or to the elevator without someone smiling and saying "Hello".

    Cons

    I work with upper management, and they surround themselves with unprofessional people...People that should have been let go for their behavior YEARS ago. These employees treat fellow employees like garbage, and they always get away with it. Other departments can see this, and HR has been involved, but it somehow got swept under the rug.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of these unprofessional psychos that surround management. Every department can see that they need to be given the boot. Unfortunately, I know this won't happen and I am not sure how much I can take before I leave.
