    I have been working at TFCU full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    TFCU offers great benefits, the company is expanding and working to build and grow. There are many opportunities within the organization and they are always looking to go internal with a promotion. TFCU is very charitable which is one of the reasons I started working for the CU, they do a lot for local schools and universities. They pay fair salaries, and most managers are willing to teach and train you. They also have business casual in the summer months which is a plus, no ties and polo's are allowed.

    Cons

    Like any organization there are some pain points, since they have grown so much. But the organization seems to be taking a lot of initiative to change these issues. They even implemented an employee groups to help find solutions. I think increasing communication as they have been will help.

    Advice to Management

    I would say, keep doing what you are doing and work with employees on the front lines to get the problems resolved. Also keep showing your appreciation, for employees through Jeans Days, raffles and employee recognition night.
