    I have been working at United Nations FCU full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've enjoyed the scope of work UNFCU provides its employees. We're not a huge organization, so that allows for all of us to be exposed to more things. I also appreciate the leadership here. They are accessible, knowledgeable and seem to work hard to constantly improve processes.

    Cons

    Organization-wide scorecard can be stressful, especially if it seems like we're not going to meet our goals.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be open to change, evolution. We're becoming a digital world.

    I worked at United Nations FCU full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Matching 401k plan is good. Health and medical benefits are good. Extra time you get off is mediocre and overtime is included if approved.

    Cons

    Investment Centre has potential but department needs to stop playing favorites and bring on managers who know how to coach and properly lead a team. Pay structure is very low for the amount of work required and there is no opportunity for growth.

    Advice to Management

    1. Management needs to learn the skills of what it takes to run a team properly and successfully. 2. Increase the pay to retain hard working employees. 3. Simple, show appreciation and respect to employees who deserve it.

    Pros

    This place should be closed down.

    Cons

    The people of color that are afraid to speak up for their rights for fear of being terminated.
    This place reminds me of slavery.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your workers like slaves.

    I worked at United Nations FCU full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Global focus
    Brushing shoulders with an international mix of people
    NY is amazing
    big company small company culture, 1 big family

    Cons

    no growth prospects
    its size and reach is limited due to its niche segment
    not all employees are pension eligible and the 401k options are abysmal
    Management is way more than happy to pay you way more than what seems a living NYC wage in my opinion

    Advice to Management

    Pay better, move staff from dept to dept with inside promotions....use the staff you have.

    I have been working at United Nations FCU (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    UNFCU is a great place to start off at, you can gain some necessary experience and if you are willing to work you will acquire more responsibilities

    Cons

    It is difficult to move up in the company. Some Departments are forced to take on the responsibilities of other departments due to lack of accountability. For employees who have been loyal to the organization they take advantage of and are not willing to pay them according to their experience. They appreciate outside talent who in reality they have been unsuccessful in retaining for a long period of time. Departments are drastically unstaffed and ignored, especially by their management from within.

    Advice to Management

    Managemebt you need to change you tone within the organization. You come off as someone who does not care about the employees and people do not respect you. You will lose the talent that you have if you continue leading the company that way you do. People are angry, frustrated, and beginning to see the benefits outside the organization.

    I worked at United Nations FCU (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is plenty of opportunity to move up if you work hard and have good performance reviews. Management is available and is always willing to help.

    Cons

    Certain departments come across as unorganized, and have a lack of accountability for their own work ethic and product that they put forward. You may find yourself doing someone else's work unless you say no.

    Advice to Management

    Departments should work more as groups instead of as individuals. there are clear compartmentalization issues at hard from department to department and as well as in the over seas offices.

    I worked at United Nations FCU full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good amount of time off and sick days. 401k matching and still offers a pension. Good corporate perks, cafeteria and gym. They even have spin and other exercise classes. Good amount of perks for employees.

    Cons

    Pay can vary, either under or equal to competitors. Some departments in the credit union are over worked while others have it easy. If you join the call center get ready to work hard. Talent retention is poor. Management is not the most innovative or intelligent.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your employees lead from the ground up and not the other way. Your employees are more knowledgeable then you think. The future of the company is the youth in the credit union. Don't pass up on young talent. A lot of good employees are lost because management doesn't notice or ignores potential.
