    Anyone else hate banking lingo and make fun of it, but as soon as a discussion starts you say "we dont want to boil the ocean here". Fml. Whats your most despised finance phrase?

      Pros

      I still recommend working at BECU for most people. Culture and inclusion of all people. Good benefits.

      Cons

      The recent restructuring in IT has been in progress for the past year, yet it was executed poorly. No one was expecting a 20% staff layoff. They restructured payscales and bonus rates down as a way to trigger severance offers. Very few non-managers kept the same levels. Poor performing staff were kept over high performing because the high performers took severance offers. They were ready for a change. IT was over due for a RIF of low performers due to the huge growth over past four years. But result was the wrong set of staff. They claim to not be outsourcing staff but that is just semantics. There will be an effort to move to managed service vendors which still takes the staff roles away. Some have already been replaced with support overseas. We were given mixed messaging from all leadership levels and even clearly blatant lies. This was all justified by new or redefined job titles as a skills assessment for those capable of the new skills. No effort was given for staff to apply for new positions and show thier skills fit. No evidence an actual skills assessment happened.

      BECU Response

      HR Communications

      We communicated the recent changes to the BECU Tech division to all employees through conversations at the individual, division and organization level, among other channels, and also provided the opportunity for employees to ask questions of our leaders. These were difficult decisions, but made after a thorough and extensive process. The reorganization is a critical and necessary step for BECU as we strive to meet the ever-evolving needs of our members and the credit union. As we’ve shared with employees, there is no plan to outsource roles as part of the reorganization. We remain committed to continuing to recruit and develop a diverse workforce across BECU, and the reorganization provides even more opportunity for growth and development for our current Tech team. Our goal has been, and continues to be, to treat all employees with respect and dignity. We are grateful for your service to BECU and our members.

      Pros

      Good benefits and PTO, Affordable health insurance

      Cons

      Low pay compared to industry. Insight survey result shows employees are not happy with their own salary. All VPs and EMT members only cares about profit and how to cut costs. With recent raise of 5-10%, employees are still making way less than other companies. People in Retail Banking are leaving the company for higher pay. However. Upper management still thinks current pay is fair and would hire someone would work for BECU not becuase of money. The thing is people do work for their money and keep up with living cost. Be Real like BECU core value
