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

    Pros

    SAC Federal Credit Union has been a great company to work for. I love that it is a credit union - so it's not for profit and our customers are the owners. The culture is very approachable. I can reach out and contact anyone from a teller to a senior vice president and get genuine and helpful person. SAC has a laid back but professional atmosphere. I know that there are lots of people here who care about me as an employee and a person. When my family had medical issues, they worked with me so I could work part time until issues were resolved. My supervisor knows me and encourages me to make decisions on my own and to grow into the professional I want to be. I'm not just an employee, I'm part of the SAC family.

    Cons

    Nothing major sticks out to me.

    I worked at SAC Federal Credit Union full-time

    Pros

    Good way to get your foot in the door with the financial industry.

    Cons

    Sac is so focused on reaching one billion dollars they have lost focus of what truly matters - their members and their employees. New management program is a joke they se left people who are sheep and willing to do exactly what upper management wants - without questioning out dated rules. If you have your own brain you won't make it past a senior.

    Advice to Management

    Atop gossiping about your employees and start actually caring about them. I've never worked for a company where upper management gossips so openly about employees. It makes for a vcery uncomfortable work environment.

    I have been working at SAC Federal Credit Union full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you're the CEO then you can get a free car with all expenses paid, including detailing and gas. If you get it dirty mailroom employees will get it detailed for you. If you wreck it you'll get a new one. And luckily it comes out of customers' interest payments.

    Cons

    -managers aren't all competent, several of them are just upper management's pets
    -less than 2% annual raises except upper management...everyone's pay is according to a posted chart on HR website EXCEPT senior management
    -almost nonexistent annual bonus accompanied with a silly, useless annual commemorative coin
    -more likely to hire externally instead of promote within
    -they have a management trainee program but even HR doesn't take it seriously. It's supposed to be the only way someone can be promoted to branch manager but recent management changes and unexpected promotions have proved otherwise...

    Advice to Management

    None. Won't be staying long.

    I worked at SAC Federal Credit Union (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fitness center, great co workers

    Cons

    Corrupt company hierarchy full of a click of friends, managers discourage employee growth, constant employee turnover, and department restructuring

    Advice to Management

    Honor your company culture, don’t hire/promote managers who ignore it. ALLthe managers need SERIOUS training on how encourage their employees.

    Pros

    Good people doing the grunt work. Hate to see all the great people not being appreciated.

    Cons

    Fast track if you are in the family/friends network. For such a big credit union, the new employee training needs to be updated.

    Pros

    Senior management aside, the company has great employees to work with. Health benefits are better than most.

    Cons

    Senior management is completely disconnected from issues and everyday life of employees. Staff is significantly under paid when considering salary competitiveness at other financial institutions. It is the only place I have ever worked in my life were exceeding expectations does not advance your career. Senior management looks for "Yes Employees," with questioning of policy and procedures frowned upon no matter how inefficient and ineffective they may be. The CEO has a mandate to grow assets over $1 Billion by 2017 and is doing so at a reckless pace. If you are debating between SAC and another financial institution pick the other employer.

    Advice to Management

    It would not matter. They wouldn't listen anyway.

    Pros

    Insurance benefits are matched 60/40 in favor of employee.

    Cons

    Stopped focusing on what's most important, customer service, and started focusing on numbers and sales instead.

    Advice to Management

    Customer service is the most important aspect. Without great customer service you have no members to serve in the larger picture.

    Pros

    Lots of branches to choose from

    Cons

    staff cut backs make it stressful to get work done

    Advice to Management

    Go back to what a credit union is supposed to be, a place that helps it's members instead of trying to get the bottom line to a billion dollars so that the President can retire with a huge bonus.
