    I have been working at Los Angeles Police Federal Credit Union full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are unbelievable! Monthly initiatives in giving to the community, employee recognition and appreciation. No sharks looking to take you out. They actually want to see you succeed. They truly care about their members. When I arrive to work, I feel safe, wanted and like a make a difference. Employees are super friendly.

    Cons

    Set in old ways. They need to advance to this century. Climbing the ladder is tough. Some people need to retire or be fired. Change is a must

    Advice to Management

    You have done a great job in creating a successful, financially strong company. Your care for people is admirable. It is time for retirement for some senior management. We need a facelift, new changes, ideas and excitement.

    I have been working at Los Angeles Police Federal Credit Union full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    BENEFITS are unreal! LAPFCU contributes 20% of my gross salary to my retirement plan (employer contribution) regardless of whether I contribute to my voluntary 401k plan or not. Also, they 100% of the employee premium for my own medical, dental, vision, short-term & long-term disability, EAP, and life insurance plans. The medical premium for my dependents is covered at 50%. Unreal! :))

    Cons

    Company isn't perfect but none worth mentioning.

    Pros

    LAPFCU is a great place to transition to if you are tired of the slave drive of regular commercial banks. They actually treat you like a human being.

    Pay is good.

    Cons

    Small organization, not a lot of room for advancement.

    Pros

    Comprehensive Benefit Package, Great Employees, Healthy Environment, Good Employee Recognition, Good Pay, Good Communication within departments. Several years awarded for Best Place to Work in the industry.

    Cons

    Numerous interruptions and breaks in productivity for social activities such as bagel break, raffle parties, luncheons, birthday celebrations. Work is very routine for most positions. Not much growth.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow the business and offer more diversified services, so there are more career opportunities within the organization. Stay abreast of technology driven industries.
