    I have been working at Advancial full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Smaller than a bank, more personal. You get to know your peers really well. The employees and managers truly care about one another, this includes leadership. Departments are smaller but most are allowed the opportunity to work remotely once a week, which is nice. The benefits are amazing. There's always something fun going on, monthly socials, holiday contests, team building, etc. It's been described as "work... hard, play hard" and I would say that's accurate.

    Cons

    Because we are smaller there's not an abundance of promotion opportunities in every department. You may have to wait for someone to leave before that promotion opportunity occurs. They add new positions each year, but size is still a limitation as compared to some employees expectations for growth.

    Pros

    Advancial has a distinct culture where employees are valued, treated with respect, and appreciated for the work they do. The Leadership of the Credit Union is very interactive with employees and it truly shows that an employee is not just a number. The benefits package is superior as compared to other companies. The benefits include some non-traditional items such as a vacation home for employees to use, many events... throughout the year for all employees, and wellness programs where employees are encouraged to live a healthier lifestyle. Lastly, management is very supportive of employee needs. Flexible scheduling and remote working is part of the culture at the corporate office.

    There's always room for career growth, but it may take some time possibly due to the size of the company.

    Pros

    A great place to work where everyone seems to live by the motto work hard and play hard. Teamwork and the service orientation toward internal employees and members are like no where I have ever worked - truly inspiring. Leadership walk the talk, are approachable and encourage all employees in this great work environment. The company provides resources for health and financial wellness and provides paid time off to... volunteer. Amazing benefits including a company contribution of 8% to your 401(k) whether you contribute personally (Wow!) Just too much to highlight in a small space.

    Cons

    Don’t care for the market-based merit adjustment factor. It might keep merit adjustments aligned with the market rate but it is confusing and annoying.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and don’t lose site of the values that have made this place great.

    I have been working at Advancial full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Health program tied to discounts, Employee social groups, paid leave for community volunteerism, Access to management at all levels, pay, challenging work.

    Cons

    Challenge to keeping up with employee programs and job responsibilities, some departments could be more respectful of employee personal time. New responsibilities do not always flow through manager.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps managers should work more closely managing interdepartmental business processes and applying employee policies and Advancial culture.

    I have been working at Advancial full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Total committment to employees and customers (members), democratic hierarcy - everyone is approachable and can voice an opinion which is always considered, good ideas put to action almost immediately regardless of where they come from, superb benefits, strong leadership and HR department works had to maintain a great working environment.

    Cons

    Can't think of any worth mentioning. We're not perfect, but problems get addressed quickly. It takes a lot of work to create and maintain what we have, but that's just life. You want something good; it doesn't come easy.

    Advice to Management

    Improve project training for uninitiated project owners.

    Please do something about the cafeteria
