    I worked at American Eagle Financial Credit Union (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The Credit Union really cares about their employees and most important the voices of members.

    Cons

    After finishing a project really take focus to what the employees have to say about how the project rolled up during the "Lessons Learned".

    Consistency in accountability.

    I worked at American Eagle Financial Credit Union full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    good benefits, funds for uniforms - consistently bringing in new blood

    Cons

    went from a small friendly knew everyone culture to a rigid corporate culture - terminating old employees who know the business just because

    Advice to Management

    re-create the family culture and be open/honest with employees - hire/promote from within

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at American Eagle Financial Credit Union full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The credit union has a great leadership team that take care of their employees through education and benefits

    Cons

    It is a small company so you really need to be on top of your game to move into higher positions. There are only so many.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to pay high performing employees instead of making them equal with everyone else in the department. Not everyone deserves the same pay.

    Pros

    Good management team and leadership overall. CEO and EVPs put resources into making sure employees are considered when making decisions. Solid, strong and clear values are communicated throughout the organization.

    Cons

    They are growing into something more than they are today, and they need to make sure all areas are caught up. Some employees are still living the 'old credit union days'.

    Advice to Management

    Set the example for the behavior you want to see throughout the organization. Lead without micromanaging. And stop talking in circles, it is a waste of everyone's time. Do what you do, and do it well.

    Pros

    Offer really good benefit package and will match 401k. Pay is really good as well.

    Trying hard to become a larger credit union making them more of a bank. Added this new sales program with a high sales goal that isn't really obtainable

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    The salary and benefits are favorable

    Cons

    Management is a nightmare!!!! Employees are no longer important to upper management. Employee morale has sunk to an all time low and it does not seem to make a difference to them.

    Pros

    Managment really cares about their employees. Maybe too much. They do ot like to terminate employees unless they do something horribly wrong. This is good for those people who don't like to work much. Benefits are great, especially if you are looking to go back to school.

    Cons

    Management doens't like to termniate people. There are people that are working their butts off while others just sit and surf the web. It is tough to move up in this company.

    Advice to Management

    Make all employees equal. Both front facing staff and back office staff should be treated evenly. Look at how you market the company. The marketing is still for the older generation.

    Not every branch is the same.

    Advice to Management

    Rules and policies should be the same across the board.
