    I worked at University Federal Credit Union full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great income potential, great work culture, excellent benefits, 401k. Stop thinking about it and apply already. You will not regret it.

    Cons

    No cons to offer from the six years I worked there. I only left because I moved out of Austin.

    Pros

    Work/life balance, Great Benefits, good bonus structure. Coworkers are like family now. Able to share ideas with upper management and they implement the ideas.

    Cons

    Length of time to be promoted is too long. Base pay is too low. Not a lot of internal options to move around

    I worked at University Federal Credit Union full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    2 words- Unbeatable culture. Most companies talk a lot about their values but it usually ends there. UFCU makes a constant effort to hire people that align with their core values. I have never worked in a more welcoming, engaging, supportive environment. This was one company I was actually sad to leave.

    Cons

    There's no restaurant in the building anymore (there is a coffee shop though).

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    You get paid on time., incentives can be good.

    Cons

    Management is led by favoritism, knowing your job and being good at what you were trained to do have nothing to do with how likely you are to receive a promotion or raise. Complaining to HR or trying to reach Tony are lost efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management.

    I have been working at University Federal Credit Union full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The atmosphere within the company is great for people who enjoy working with others. There truly is a sense of community and camaraderie with my colleagues.

    Cons

    Coming from a job that paid $60,000+ to one that pays almost 1/2 it can be a bit daunting. But that is not the companies fault.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to treat subordinates with respect and dignity. Lunch with the president of the company is a great tactic to truly employ the phrase 'Our door is always open'.
