    Pros

    Good benefits, great co-workers, culture supports the community and employees take pride in serving the less fortunate. Management values the input from employees.

    Cons

    There has been significant changes in mid and high level management that have scared some long term employees away. Those who fear or don't welcome change will struggle here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Take input into consideration from all levels. Change doesn't always have to be painful. Those who embrace the vision will work through it.

    I have been working at Kinecta FCU (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a company that cares about its employees. It's a not for profit bank and their priorities are different than what you'll find at Wells or BofA...no share price or quarterly earnings to worry about. They genuinely want to help customers (members). They are also serious about giving back in the community. Lots of opportunities to get involved. They even give you a day off with pay each year just to volunteer. Pay is pretty good and benefits are what you'd expect.

    Cons

    Lots of changes in the last few years. A little slow to adopt new technology. Underperforms compared to other credit unions, but some of the changes seem to be addressing that.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the haters. Nobody wants to around that negativity all day.
