    I worked at Michigan State University Federal Credit Union full-time

    Pros

    Overall a good environment to work in. The benefits are great, and if you have a family to insure, there's no comparison with other companies. Expectations are consistent, the open-door policy makes things feel more fair than most places, lots of availability for training. This is more "traditional" work environment that values a college degree and climbing your way up from the bottom, and rewards those who stick... around longer (particular in terms of the 401K match).

    Cons

    Can be catty/political as people stretch for the higher-paying positions. If you're trying to climb the ladder without a degree, expect a much slower climb than your collegiate counterparts.

    Advice to Management

    MSUFCU has sought to evolve with the times and so far done a good job - don't stop now!

    Pros

    MSU Federal Credit Union is committed to its employees, members, and the communities that they are located in. I have worked at prior Financial Institutions that have been very sales oriented and was always put down when I did not meet goals, at MSUFCU it is not this way-Management creates a healthy work environment that motivates employees to do their best, so that they can provide the best to the Members. ... Health care is fantastic, pay is competitive, and time off is fair.

    Cons

    Applying for different positions within the Credit Union can be difficult, especially highly sought after positions that generate a lot of internal interest. However, I do feel that Management is fair in selecting the best candidate for the position.

    Advice to Management

    Continue providing superior service to not only our Membership, but also the employees! Help them reach their dreams and goals, and give them the tools required (such as internal position promotions) that will help them achieve.

    I have been working at Michigan State University Federal Credit Union full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free benefits (full coverage, vision, and dental) with a wide range of services. Easy-going workplace where you can work both independently and as a team. Support from management without micromanagement. Opportunities to volunteer and get involved with the community. A welcoming and inviting culture that allows all hair colors, tattoos, piercings, etc.

    Cons

    The pay and inability to advance are honestly the only bad things about this place. I would stay forever if I was able live on what they pay. You're also told time and time again to request shadows in other departments, indicate interest in moving up into said departments, etc. when almost all positions go to pre-selected candidates from another back office department. Managers too often decide who they're going... to hire before an interview. It's extremely difficult to move from a frontline position to an actual career in the back office for this reason.

    Advice to Management

    Push for your employees to get where they want rather than being stuck in a dead-end frontline position if you truly want them to stay. Make sure that underutilized employees are given opportunities to show their potential.

    Pros

    It has been an amazing experience. The work environment is very positive and every single person that works here is trying to help you.

    Cons

    Honestly None-It has been great

    Advice to Management

    Try and get the interns more involved with more hands-on projects where they might see the impact in the company directly.

    Pros

    The culture of the company is great. They believe in rewarding employees for hard work. Most people you work with are sweet and genuine.

    Cons

    Working in a branch that is not close to headquarters makes you feel like you don't belong. Management does not support you. If a member comes in and curses you out then you're just told to deal with. However if someone complains about you then there is a long conversation that is needed. Manager is not experienced enough and doesn't trust her own judgement so every request is a process.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that management is truly ready to be on there own before giving them an entire branch to run.

    Pros

    Very enjoyable work culture/environment. There is a large focus in training and development. Great benefits, including education assistance.

    Cons

    The company is starting to place a lot of structure in job expectations and promotion requirements. This makes it more difficult to advance into senior role or management without putting in years of work.
