Suggestions for improvement

  • I would do away with the vice president position and take more control of the day to day doings than the current CEO does.

What I like about the company

They pay pretty well and offer a lot of paid leave time. They provide parties and outings for staff. Occasionally they will provide food. They are closed on weekends and holidays.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of the favoritism that it blatantly showed to some employees and I disapprove of the unprofessional manner in which a couple of the managers act at times.

Company Culture

Coworkers are great.

Support from management

Managers express that it's like working with family. They don't tell you the fine print, that only managers on up to the CEO is the family not the workers.

Teamwork

Management is only interested in what they think.

Freedom to work independently

They exhibited no trust. At no point was I treated like a member of the team.

Internal Communication

Management communicated after issues occurred and even then it wasn't honest or productive.

Gender Equality

White and male. Good ole boys atmosphere.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Mostly hire young people.

Career Development

Choices were limited compared to other company's.

Overall compensation for your work

Low compensation to protect managers CEO high salaries.

Office / Work Environment

Old office.

Environmental Friendliness

Main concern was to make money.

Work-Life Balance

They expressed work life balance but required everyone to bring laptop home. They only allowed specific 'family' to work from home during the day.

Company Image

Wolves in sheeps clothing.

Job Security

Much political maneuvering and constant stress of being singled out.

Handicapped Accessibility

There were no ramps on the upper floors. Handicapped individuals had to be carried out during drill!

Workplace Safety

Safety drills were not consistent. I could have sat at my desk and nobody would have cared or noticed.

Challenging Work

I was very proud of my work but others took the credit.

Inclusive / Diverse

Mostly white males in control.

Support from management

The changes started taking place several years ago with people being hired in at Sr. Manager or VP level who had no idea what the culture of the organization was. The final straw was when someone who could barely run a branch effectively was promoted to Regional Manager and then Sr. Manager. Manipulation isn't leadership, people.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Stop trying to be a big bank and get back to why you're supposed to verify here.

What I like about the company

The other employees are an amazing group of people who are focused on serving the membership.

What I dislike about the company

Senior and executive management has completely lost touch with the mission of UFCU and the whole reason behind the CU movement.

Support from management

After the influx of WF managers the entire culture was destroyed. Managers who were a positive voice were run off or fired. The COO was run off and and that point the voice of the member was gone. Profit was the one and only name of the game.

Teamwork

Among the employeesame there was a great deal of teamwork. Senior management were above it and not involved.

Company Image

Image is all this place has left. It's a shell of itself.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Ego is horrible. Try to remember that credit unions are there for the members, not multi-millions in profits and the CEOs ego.

What I like about the company

The front-line branch ops folks are wonderful.

What I dislike about the company

It's a shame that the good middle managers got away from there.
