    I have been working at Fairfax County FCU full-time

    Pros

    Generous PTO, benefits are affordable, great 401k match, provide plenty of training for employees, some good coworkers to enjoy your work day with.

    Cons

    Very little room for growth, many "clicks" formed, some ridiculous rules that make employees feel like children, senior management not always interested in what staffs opinions or feedback are, staff seem to be fearful of senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Crack down on office clicks and hear both sides of stories. Too many people always trying to throw someone else under the bus to protect them self. Get rid of ridiculous and outdated rules and guidelines.

    I worked at Fairfax County FCU full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Federal Holiday's off. Good benefits. Otherwise NO PRO

    Cons

    Terrible CEO, terrible management, non-existent HR dept, and no positive mission or mantra by which to serve the customer or their employees.

    Advice to Management

    There is nothing that can help this company. With the leadership as is, there will never be a safe or positive work environment. This place is run by incompetent individuals who know nothing about working for or supporting their staff.

    Great location, staff and mission of the organization.

    Cons

    Top leadership isn't necessarily the right leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Be more engaged with your staff and listen to their ideas.

    I worked at Fairfax County FCU full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I can't honestly say anything positive about this bank. It is probably one of the worst places on the planet.

    Cons

    Typically, I don't write reviews. I prefer to tell people what I think with my business--if you treat me well, I keep coming back, and if you don't, then I find someone who well.
    That changed today.

    This Credit Union--who is more crooked than any bank I have ever been a part of-- has terrible customer service, continuously jerks around its customers, and makes you jump through hoops to fix *their* errors. In the past, I would have simply transferred my money out and moved on, but then I spoke with other members and read reviews online and found that my terrible experience appears to be the norm rather than the exception. That is patently unacceptable for any business, and I strongly urge anyone considering using this credit union to look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Close down this entire bank until you can learn how to operate a business without shady business practices.
