    Pros

    Medical benefits are good, and it's an old company that is somewhat stable and growing.

    Cons

    If you are not a manager of some sort, you will be hourly (i.e. non-exempt), and if you are hourly, you will be required to punch in on a web-based timecard when you come in, when you leave and when you leave and return from your lunch. When you start, you will be given a time to start work and a time to leave and you will have a six minute window (i.e. +-3 min.) to clock in. If you are late, you will be marked late. You also can’t start early w/o prior authorization. If your lunch runs long, or the line at the local coffee house is longer than you expected or the traffic is worse than usual, you will be considered late. You can’t just make the time up at the end of the day. Once, I told my boss that I would be in at noon after a dentist’s appointment which ran long. I clocked in at 12:15, and was marked late. All of these tardies, (yes, that’s what they call them), will be accrued and used against you during reviews to keep you from raises and advancement. You could even be written up for too many tardies and/or using too much sick time.
    Now if you’re coming on for a managerial position, you won’t have to clock in or out, but if you have any direct reports who are non-exempt, then you will be processing their timecards on a clunky web-based timesheet application.
    There is no real casual Friday. They will tell you there is, but if you’re going to wear jeans, then you have to wear an article of clothing from a third party catalog who embroiders company logos on shirts and jackets. The items are very nice, and you will be given vouchers to purchase these.
    They will tell you Columbus day is a paid holiday, however you will often have to come to work albeit to an offsite company-wide communications meeting. The meeting isn’t that bad and is quite fun with interesting speakers and good catering, but I don’t know why they tell you during the interview that it’s a paid holiday, but tell you that you’re coming to work that day during the new hire orientation.
    I don’t share any of this to discourage anyone from considering a position at TCU. I share this because they will not share this. They will tell you almost none of this especially the part about the web-based timecard during your interview, so I urge you to ask them to be clear and up front. Have them clarify everything that you have read here. Some things may have changed since I left, but you can only be sure by asking.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting from within simply because employees have been there a long time. Always bring in outside candidates to compete with internal promotion candidates to get the best person for the job. Be more honest during the interview. Keep cleaning house.

    Some very good coworkers, good benefits and good opportunities for those in the right places.

    It was the launch of their Summer Internship Program. Immediate supervision needed to provide continual projects for the interns.

    Advice to Management

    It was the launch of their Summer Internship Program. Immediate supervision needed to provide continual projects for the interns. Otherwise, it was a great experience. I could have done quite a bit more with the time allotted to me.

    I worked at Travis Credit Union full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    >Worked along side some truly smart and talented people.
    >Generally speaking, it was a positive environment to work in. People got along well for the most
       part.
    >When management is available, most times they're receptive to employee concerns and ideas.
    >Challenging work, depending on the department you work in.
    >The CEO and most of the other executive staff are very approachable. Most times you can see
       them walking around talking with other employees.
    >If you're the "Jack of all trades" type person, this organization is a perfect fit. Doesn't seem to
      matter what dept. you work in. This is especially true in the IT Dept.
    >Great health benefits for full-time employees and there families.
    >1% off the interest rates for some AUTO and HOME loans made with the credit union.

    Cons

    >Annual product knowledge test for all employees is mandatory. Yes, even all back office staff must
       take a test to demonstrate knowledge of the Credit Union's products and services. Seems kind of
       silly and a waste of time for back office employees.
    >Management can sometimes seem "overworked" and not really attentive to employee needs.
    >Sometimes there are excessive amounts of "drive-by" requests (tasks to be performed that are
      unrelated to the project) from management & other employees while working on a major project.
    >Management can be too quick to act when it comes to adopting a new product
      or service to roll out. They don't always get the input from the people that will eventually be using or
      managing the new product or service.
    >Have worked along side some incompetent employees in this organization and have yet to
      understand why they are still employed. These employees are cancers to a dept and organization
      as a whole. In the end, keeping them around just builds up resentment towards that person (and
      there managers).

    Advice to Management

    If you know you have an incompetent employee in your Dept. and you have had multiple employees echoing concerns about there ability to do the job, then its time to put them on corrective action. If that doesn't do the trick, cut that employee loose. You don't want your fellow employees to build resentment towards that person and then toward your ability to manage effectively.
