    I have been working at BECU (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    How can you not want to work for an organization that saved its members $169,000,000 last year? BECU is growing and there are lots of opportunities at all levels of the organization. BECU offers great benefits, and the opportunity to give back to your community through volunteering and get paid for it.

    Cons

    The growth means things are moving quickly--lots of challenges to take on. If you're looking for a stodgy environment that doesn't change, this isn't it!
