Good company not so good management
Service champion, member champion (Former Employee) –  Lake Jackson, TXOctober 30, 2016
Worked in several different branches and each one was different than the other. Management makes a big difference. The bigger the branch the less involved management is. Supervisors and team leads are always too busy to be present or answer important questions. The are gone extended hours and only good supervisors take a "normal" lunch time. Coworkers make the job worth while though. The are like second family. Hours can be long, sometimes having to work more than your 40 hours, having to stay late or come in early.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Management, hours

The members are great!
Member Champion Team Lead (Former Employee) –  TexasAugust 10, 2016
The members are really what makes this organization - but as a salaried member of management low on the totem pole, I was given conflicting tasks and unreasonable time frames to get things done on a daily basis. I was expected to open and close the branch every day while the branch manager tooled in whenever she wanted, closed her office door and kicked back in her chair on a "conference call" or went on a 3 hour lunch to have her hair done. The member champion manager is just as bad, often disappearing for "special projects" for days at a time. Advancement opportunities are virtually zero until you have been there for a year, and you can expect to work a minimum or 60-70 hours a week while being compensated for only 40 of them. I did it for 7 months consistently, and then when I complained I was terminated. If that's the culture you want to work for, then by all means - go for it!
Pros
they do feed you a lot when they have you stay til 9pm for branch meetings, or ask you to work through lunch because they are shorthanded.
Cons
No organizational structure, no employee handbook or any type of standardized rules and regulations across the company.

Terrific Place to work
IT Infrastructure Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Lake Jackson, TXJune 30, 2015
One of the best cultures you could possibly imagine and the benefits are off of the charts. The Credit Union industry is growing fast and the big fish are slowly swallowing the little fish. TDECU is the big fish.

Great Place To Work
Financial Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Victoria, TXMay 2, 2013
Advancement within the company was slow but the people you worked with, including upper management became like another family. Benefits were pretty good, time off was good as well and the working environment was great most of the time, it had its small drawbacks like any place.
Pros
Great Co-Workers, Big Christmas Party

Great employees to work with
Purchasing Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Lake Jackson, TXDecember 11, 2012
I have learned that every office functions differently and there is always room to grow and learn something new. Co-workers are friendly, but work is not the place for your personal life. The hardest part about my job is being micro-managed by my boss and treated like I am less than my worth. I enjoy the freedom to purchase specific items when the need arises.

great place to work, people are friendly and helpful and open to ideas from all levels...lots of growth opportunities if you want to get promoted from within. company is growing and wants to hire smart people who are also good people. The bottom line is not the Holy Grail here.
Pros
good pay and benefits, opportunities to move around the branches, tend to promote from within, not just banking, other product lines that attract smart people
Cons
can't think of any
