TECHNICAL ANALYST/NETWORK TECH (Current Employee) – Rome, NY – June 10, 2017
Okay place to work for experience. If you start as a beginner. Not much help with furthering education. Workers/departments help each other to make sure member process is completed professionally and efficiently.
MRA (Current Employee) – Syracuse, NY – December 14, 2016
Worked there for 5+ years and and have never been thanked for a job well done. They let members walk all over the employees and coworkers are very cut throat. They love to surprise fire people and management is very disloyal.
Decent benefits. Lacks room for development and career progression.
Business / Relationship Advisor (Current Employee) – Syracuse, NY – December 1, 2016
Overall, this is a good place to work. They provide good compensation in comparison to other credit unions and banks. The major drawback is that there is not really anywhere to move up within the organization. They rarely hire from within and someone can typically only move up, if willing to commute to Rome. I have had great co-workers and the atmosphere is fairly laid back. They are good about appointments and other time off requests.
MSSII (Current Employee) – Utica, NY – September 28, 2016
Great company, work is divided amongst the financial center depts, so no one person is ever really overwhelmed. Most management is great, however, there are managers that borderline harass the employees.

Not a bad place to work but not the most positive environment
Consumer Lending Assistant (Former Employee) – Rome, NY – December 10, 2015
It's pretty cushy as a desk job goes, but there's little chance to learn beyond what's expected of you and no chance for any kind of promotion, and is the same routine every day. The atmosphere in the back office is increasingly negative as it's the old case of "too much work, not enough people" and the stress builds up and affects people's attitudes.
A lot of the people outside of the department are very nice and approachable, but more often than not each subset of a department is clique-y and sometimes not very welcoming to anyone outside it. Most people I've worked with outside my own cube farm are quite nice and willing to work together, some in my own department can sometimes get a little condescending or unappreciative.
Little morale boosters that provide a break from the monotony
Same stuff, different day and nothing ever really changes for the better
Security Member Service Specialist II (Current Employee) – Yorkville, NY – August 17, 2015
A typical day at work includes performing basic teller transactions, supervising other employees, and providing excellent member service. I have learned that not every day is the same and you will encounter many people with different problems. I have grown close with many of my co-workers and have formed a bond that I will never forget. I'm able to adapt to new surroundings and work well with others.
Technologically advanced credit union with a lot to offer members
Member Relationship Advisor (Current Employee) – Syracuse, NY – September 19, 2012
AmeriCU Credit Union is a great place to work, but advancement opportunities are very slim. Member Service Specialists can advance to Member Relationship Advisors, but it is difficult to go further than that. I am thankful for all that I have learned during my tenure at AmeriCU. I have obtained skills related to finances that I probably would never have learned not being an employee there. My direct co-workers have always been great and that is the major reason I have not left the company, especially during times when I really wanted to leave. The hardest part of the job at AmeriCU is pleasing the members and staying within all the government regulations regarding banking. Overall, I have enjoyed working at AmeriCU.
decent health insurance coverage
limited breaks, working with a short-staff, no advancement opportunities
