      Pros

      The culture at MSUFCU is awesome- you really feel you’re part of a family. There’s good work/life balance. Promotions and merit increases are based on work and if you do a good job you definitely get recognized. Pay is competitive and benefits are amazing.

      Cons

      Communication is difficult at such a big organization, but management is constantly looking to improve that and do better.

      Anyone else hate banking lingo and make fun of it, but as soon as a discussion starts you say "we dont want to boil the ocean here". Fml. Whats your most despised finance phrase?

      Pros

      - Variety of employee engagement activities - Many opportunities to learn and be mentored—if you seek them out! - Excellent work-life balance - Volunteer opportunities (and some with VTO)

      Cons

      - Limited career mobility - Growing pains: the organization continues to expand, but it doesn't really seem to have adapted its strategy to effectively meet the increase in demand.

      Pros

      -MSUFCU is a fantastic company that encourages its employees with a "hire from within" philosophy. Nearly everyone hires in as a Financial Services Rep, Call Center Specialist or eServices Specialist; but put your passion to work in one of those positions to start and the sky is the limit. Our CEO started her career here as a Marketing Specialist in her 20s. There are regular Pre-Management groups and Management Development group opportunities available. If Management isn't your style, we do as much as we possibly can in-house (which includes Visa Specialists, Information Technology, Accounting, Loss Prevention, etc.); so there are a ton of other departments available for you to explore career paths in. -Benefits are pretty top-notch (401K 1:2 match up to 5% currently (you put in 5%, MSUFCU puts in 10%), eligible to earn 26 PTO days to start, health insurance is great, etc)

      Cons

      -Starting pay as an FSR, Call Center or eServices Specialist could be better since we try to attract college grads, but the earning potential is there if you're interested in working hard and/ or overtime. -Easy to see that the Management work/ life balance is hard and we constantly need to hire more managers to try to fill positions since we're always evolving -Back office dress code could be more relaxed (meaning nearly everyone not working in a Branch or that regularly interacts with members face-to-face) -Would be nice to have option to work from home/ remotely occasionally. Only managers and certain roles have laptops, but there are some projects that could easily be done from home in some departments. Sure, member information and confidentiality is important, but if someone cannot be trusted with information and discretion at home, can they be trusted at work still?

      Pros

      Good work/life balance Helpful employees Open door policy Flexible hours

      Cons

      Micro-managed Poor upper management Pay is awful Politics! TRUMPS ALL! Don't ever bring up new ideas because they are seen as a threat to the already established guidelines. Improvement/Innovation is not in their agenda. People have the appearance that they are nice. The employees put on a pretty good facade.
