    I have been working at PrimeWay FCU full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    PrimeWay cares about their employees; the benefits are good and the incentives are even better. We also have the opportunity to continually grow our skills. Also, PrimeWay is also really involved in the community.

    But for me, the biggest Pro about PrimeWay is the CEO, Annette Zimmerman. With her, it's not, "I'm the CEO and you're the employee." She takes the time to meet with employees to find out their challenges. She wishes us happy birthday and happy work anniversary. She even sent me a handwritten sympathy card to my house when my grandmother died. That kind of involvement makes me feel valued and I LOVE my job. The culture here is amazing!

    Cons

    The only downside to working here is the main office is currently in the middle of 290 construction. Eventually, construction will end and it won't be a con anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to value your employees because we're here to make your jobs easier and help make you shine.

    I worked at PrimeWay FCU (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great to start off at. Great peers.

    Cons

    Management needs to care more about their employees. If seems they only care for themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Offer competitive pay, better training opportunities, understand that employees have families. Try to keep those that do want to say rather then just let them go cause you dont want to pay more.

    Pros

    generally, most of employees are friendly

    Cons

    Very unhealthy work environment at the dept I worked at. The head of Dept is a micromanager, very tense, and unable to handle pressure. Unfortunately it took a week to realize that it's not my place to work.

    Advice to Management

    I think top management need to ensure that their department heads provide an environment that encourages creativity and innovation.

    Pros

    Great company, friendly people great benifits

    Cons

    Shared banking is horrible other CU members can come and do limited transactions but they come and expect us to service their full needs and get mad when we tell them no

    Advice to Management

    Remove shared branching

    I worked at PrimeWay FCU full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and great coworkers.

    Cons

    Management is terrible. They hire unqualified people, don't follow their own mission, vision or values. Extremely disorganized and unprofessional. CEO never shows up for anything except a photo op and they don't pay for OT.

    Advice to Management

    Hire quality people with degrees in the field they're applying for, get organized and pay competitively.

    Pros

    My coworkers were very friendly and helpful. Felt like a family. Patient and willing to take time to teach you

    Cons

    Limited room for advancement and the pay was not enough for the work that was expected from individuals who work there. Seemed to me like there were many people afraid to speak up when a problem came up

    Advice to Management

    Be open to the ideas of your employees.
