    I have been working at South Carolina Federal Credit Union full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The paid time off and 401k match are truly unheard of. A very positive environment built on teamwork and great values. I have never worked for a company that stands behind their message so strongly in every decision that is made.

    Cons

    Upward mobility can be different but it seems they are making large strides in promoting from within. If you are a floater in the branches, travel can be difficult around Charleston

    Advice to Management

    Branch managers, practice what senior leadership preaches, coach your employees and don't just focus on hitting loan goals. If you have positive and engaged employees you'll hit your numbers
