    I have been working at CU Direct full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing benefits. Great people to work with. Lots of fun activities through-out the year. Fast-pace and lots of changes but fun. Moving to agile which is great. Stable and growing company.

    Cons

    I've been with CU Direct for some years and something that's always been the case is there is a lack of diversity including race and gender in management. Only men in management and only men get promoted. Unless you fit the mold of a white male there will be an apparent glass ceiling for you. Slow to address major issues. Often take advantage of hardworking employees.

    Advice to Management

    Diversity! Try and make your management team more diverse. You have 'a little' diversity below management. Promote from within instead of hiring more white men. Stop taking advantage of good employees. Continue to listen to your employees.

    Pros

    Great salary + benefits, everyone was always friendly and I always felt like we were l a family. There's nothing more I could've expected.

    Cons

    Not the hours I could always work with. I loved the company but I just expected a little more for the workers benefit.

    Advice to Management

    Support employees more

    I have been working at CU Direct full-time

    Pros

    For the most part, this is a pretty good company. They have great benefits, build good products and are growing. Benefits package is awesome and good morale overall.

    Cons

    ONLY MEN GET PROMOTED HERE. There is something weird as there aren't any women in management. There were a ton of promotions here in January and every one was a guy. I've only been here for a little while but it's obvious. We are overworked too but there are hiring more developers so it should get better.

    Advice to Management

    there is no diversity in management at this place. Someone needs to look at it.

    Pros

    Culture is great - informal, but remains professional. Work life balance is encouraged. Opinions are valueD by management. Huge opportunities for personal/professional growth due to levels of autonomy allowed. Quick to adopt new technologies. Agile. Great benefits package and beautiful office facilities.

    Cons

    Some areas lack proper policy and procedure, but this seems to be improving recently.

    Advice to Management

    Keep at it! Continue open communication and trust your employees once you set the direction.

    I have been working at CU Direct full-time

    Pros

    The pay is pretty competitive. The benefits are awesome. I feel respected as an employee. If you're truly driven, you'll be promoted; many opportunities to grow. They continue to make strides in the area of employee well-being. Strong set of core values. Financial transparency. The company has grown year over year since I started almost a decade ago. I haven't worked for a better employer.

    Cons

    Not as progressive as many start-ups, but more stability, and it seems they are trying to improve. Office environment is the typical cubes / fluorescent lighting, but infrastructure improvement is happening slowly.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on employee well-being / gross domestic happiness. Small perks / gestures make a big difference.

    Pros

    Proud to be part of CU Direct. We have the best of both world worlds... a company that has been around for over 20 years, but continues to grow year after year. Tech company in the Inland Empire! Great benefits and a good work life balance.

    Cons

    Changes happen pretty frequently, but seem to be for the long term success of the company. You definitely need to be able to adapt.
