    I worked at Royal Credit Union part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers, Bosses, Community Involvement, caring and fun environment.
    Feels like a home a way from home!

    Cons

    Things such as; health benifits, dental, annual bonus, commissions were all depleated in a year...I believe in 2014.
    There was supposed to be other incentives for employees initiated however no follow through in my eyes. At least not to the degree expected. A lot of good people were lost (most likely some not so good).
    Overall the Pro's out way the Cons by far...as long as you don't need to be the bread winner in the family.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    I have been working at Royal Credit Union full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you have worked there a long time, you do have benefits built up.
    My coworkers are awesome.

    Cons

    Many benefits were removed when we got a new CEO (Rudy)
    Company is way more interested in the giving the appearance of caring than actually doing so
    Mistakes are not allowed, but in training they say to take risks and learn from your mistakes. Two opposite goals.
     Introduced SMART goals for performance review, and now a team members performance of their actual day to day duties only count towards 10% of their reviews. When I first started working here under a different CEO, we were paid well. Now all the new CEO wants for us is average pay. Average pay but extraordinary work. If you are salaried be prepared to work all the time. There are no personal boundaries anymore.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to Management is to quit trying to become nationally famous and get back to our roots. Serving the community. Appearance is everything to this CEO. He wants the best of the best people working there, but isn't willing to pay them anything but average. According to the CEO we haven't earned anything more yet,which astounds me. I know many people who have given everything to this company, and so have I. I am worth more than average pay. I would also recommend putting a little less emphasis on the youth in your staff. Long terms are just as valuable if not more. A lot of long term team members have been fired since the new CEO. Always on edge about who will be next.
    This CEO has even said to us in a meeting that he makes a lot of money. Good for him. And goodness gracious this place has been adding a lot of new jobs with strange job titles that no one can understand. High paying jobs. So I guess we get the average salaries to afford paying the higher ups even more.

    I have been working at Royal Credit Union full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits and a caring co-workers. I have met some really wonderful people in my time at RCU.

    Cons

    Can be hard to 'move up' depending on where you start. Their career path program is almost non-existent in my department,although I know some supervisors do take time to help their staff move create goals and move toward them.

    - Manageable work schedule
    - Good training

    If you want career driven people, you need to increase your compensation/incentives for that position.
