Latasha stands next to an ATM in our corporate offices.

I’m just as excited to be here today as I was on my first day.

UFCU is a world-class organization that sets itself apart with integrity and principles. When I first joined the credit union, I was truly impressed with our President, Mr Tony Budet. He hosted a New Hire Orientation in his office where we got to sit with him and learn about both the company’s values and his personal values and motivation. I’ve never experienced anything like that at any other organization. Needless to say, it left a huge impression on me, and it was the beginning of what has been a great relationship and career for me here at UFCU.

Our motto that “relationships are all there is” is part of the foundation on which the company stands. This is an organization that aims to educate and empower its Members and employees alike, and I’m truly blessed to be part of something so great. When I reflect back on the 14 years I’ve been here and think about all the great people I’ve been fortunate to work with, I can genuinely say that I am just as excited about being here today as I was on my first day all those years ago!

UFCU lives up to its values day in and day out.

Being a part of the UFCU family has been a remarkable experience. UFCU lives up to its values day in and day out, providing for the well-being of our members by putting them first. To ensure we are always reaching the remarkable level of service we pride ourselves on, UFCU has established a team of exceptional individuals that I feel privileged to be a part of.

Each and every day, I am able to educate our members on all of our services, providing them with the financial tools to succeed. UFCU understands that our members are as diverse as their needs, and we connect with each member above and beyond other institutions’ level of service. I enjoy coming to UFCU every day, because I know that I am going to have a positive impact on our members’ well-being beyond their expectations.

I just love UFCU.

Years ago, I decided to apply for the position of part-time teller at University Federal Credit Union while I was finishing my degree. I wanted to learn practical skills that could be carried to any career path and to gain knowledge of maintaining my personal finances. After some time, I realized how amazing UFCU was to work for. It is obvious that this credit union cares about its employees by the benefits offered, the emphasis on work/life balance, and the energy and focus they give to professional development. I have reaped the benefits of being an employee as well as a Member. UFCU has been there for me every step of the way as I have grown professionally and personally. I am extremely loyal to this organization that has been extremely loyal to me. I just love UFCU.

UFCU stands behind their mission.

UFCU genuinely puts our members’ needs first and foremost, and to be a part of a company that stands behind their mission is truly a blessing. There is something special within the walls of UFCU that is unlike any other corporate environment I’ve ever been a part of. There really is a sense of family and teamwork—we truly care about each other professionally and personally.

I am very fortunate to be able to come to work every day knowing that I’m making people’s dreams come true through home ownership. I’m able to do it in such a way that I am confident we are offering the very best service and product options possible. I’m proud to be surrounded by such great leaders and colleagues in our industry. We are growing, changing, and helping our Austin community every day.

UFCU walks the talk.

UFCU is an organization that walks the talk, from its executive staff to its newest employees. Over the years, I’ve come to learn that the mission, “To provide for the well-being of our Members,” encompasses providing for the total well-being of both internal and external membership.

Since I began my employment with UFCU, I have earned a position in the department that I’ve always desired to work in—one that utilizes my degree and allows me to exercise my passion.

Throughout my employment with UFCU, I have been encouraged to grow both personally and professionally. UFCU has become more than just a workplace; it’s an environment that has fostered lasting friendships and impactful mentorships. I appreciate UFCU’s focus on diversity and the importance of a well-rounded work-life balance.

I wish I’d found this place 20 years ago.

It all started at orientation. I can honestly say that it was the most professionally run introduction I’ve ever experienced at any size organization. “Living a shared vision of purpose” is not just a goal. It’s vibrantly obvious in the culture of UFCU. How well we treat members, colleagues, and our community is critically important and paramount to our success in all areas.

Although I joined UFCU with extensive experience in commercial credit and lending, I truly enjoy the diversity of my work and discovering new roles and processes. It is very motivating to join a company that genuinely puts the well-being of members and employees at the forefront of all activities. Clearly this core attribute pays off, as independently surveyed member and employee satisfaction rates are off the charts.

I thoroughly enjoy working with my team members in a collaborative and cohesive way. It goes further than that, though, as a high level of interdepartmental cooperation exists as well. Everyone at UFCU knows that the goal is to get the entire ship moving forward and in the right direction, not just their individual compartment. As a result, I leave work each day with a strong sense of accomplishment from helping our Members. I wish I’d found this place 20 years ago.

UFCU treats its members as partners.

There are many reasons why I love working at UFCU. Some of them include the culture, our leadership, and my teammates. Integrity is doing what’s right for our members, even when no one is looking. It’s great to be part of an organization that holds this value to the highest degree. Feeling good about what you do makes all the difference. I also feel very fortunate to have a leadership team that values the growth of employees and places the highest value in people. I feel that, through the example and direction of the leadership at UFCU, I have had an opportunity to develop myself professionally and personally, and I love the people I work beside.

I also love being able to provide value to the lives of our members. Sharing member education and the culture and beliefs of UFCU make my job a privilege. It is a wonderful feeling to save our members money and empower them to make good financial decisions. We strive to take down the walls of banking and provide an interactive partnership with each member. UFCU sees each member as an individual, and we offer our service accordingly.

Everyone’s thoughts and opinions are valued.

Working for a great organization like UFCU is both an honor and a privilege. UFCU has a strong culture, focused on enhancing members’ lives while creating long-lasting relationships. The leadership is second to none and focuses on developing staff to put them in a position to succeed. I feel lucky that I am able to work and collaborate with high-character and talented individuals every day. The environment is especially unique to me because I feel everyone’s thoughts and opinions are valued, regardless of title or experience. Although my position is not member-facing, I feel my contributions and work make a difference in the lives of UFCU members and the surrounding community.

Working at UFCU, sometimes I have to pinch myself.

True focus on human capital definitely pays off! I’ve had the pleasure and honor of working for this best-in-class organization that truly values its members, internal and external. It’s only been a year since I started this inspirational and rewarding journey, and it didn’t take me long to realize that UFCU has decoded the power of “meaningful, long-lasting relationships”, and it doesn’t spare any effort to continue enhancing this superpower. It just gets better and better every day!

Sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming. There really is an organization that cares for the well-being of its most valuable asset: its people. At UFCU, we are very lucky and blessed to work with the finest team of kind, diligent, smart, and fun individuals (and this just to name a few talents). From leadership to operations, everyone is constantly and highly engaged in identifying ways to improve our business processes and providing exceptional services to our members.

My favorite part of belonging to this amazing family is that people love what they do, and they are always willing to help others around. Every morning coming into work, I feel very excited knowing that UFCU cares for me way beyond my expectations, and it makes me want to shine brighter to lighten the path of our members and my UFCU community.

The relationships I’ve built at UFCU are life-changing.

My first year with UFCU has been more rewarding than I could have ever imagined. I have never worked for an organization that places such a high value on education and giving back to the community. The relationships I’ve built at UFCU are life-changing, and I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of the UFCU family. Working in the Information Technology department means I do a lot of work behind the scenes, partnering with our business units to innovate and create technical solutions in the age of digital banking. This, in turn, helps us better serve our members not only today, but for many years to come.

Being part of the UFCU family has exceeded my expectations.

I was lucky enough to be hired as a Mortgage Loan Officer in January of 2009. I didn’t know much about credit unions until I came to work here, so I had no idea what to expect. Being part of the UFCU Mortgage family and the UFCU family has exceeded my expectations by far! I am thrilled to come to work each day, knowing I have the best team to support me, bar none. I feel part of something that is honest and full of integrity. Helping people make what is almost always the largest purchase of their lives is so exciting, and knowing we’ve made a difference to them makes me happy to come to work each day. I am so proud to say I work at UFCU and so grateful to everyone here that makes me feel that way.

People matter at UFCU.

What I love most about being part of the UFCU team is that people matter here. I’ve never worked for an organization that cares for their employees as much as their members. I believe UFCU acknowledges the importance of a healthy workplace environment and hires people of integrity and character that align with our company core values. Being surrounded with kind, caring, positive people makes for a pleasant and productive workday.

We have over 500 employees with different personality types, various cultural backgrounds, and all walks of life linked together toward the shared goal of giving our members the best experience. As an insurance service representative, I work diligently to put forth my best efforts to continue this chain and continue building relationships with our members by providing excellent service. It’s gratifying to see that my assistance has made an impact on our members lives, from something as simple as putting a smile on their face to saving them money or giving them peace of mind by assuring their assets are properly insured. At the end of the day, I can sleep better knowing I’ve made a difference.

UFCU treats employees and members like family.

I like how UFCU treats their employees like family. I started working at UFCU soon after college, and I didn’t expect to work here very long, especially considering my education and background are not in finance. I quickly realized that UFCU treats their employees and members like family. I enjoy coming to work every day, and couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. I have been given a great opportunity to use the skills and abilities that I already have, and I’m constantly able to learn more.

I enjoy being able to serve our members throughout their lives and see them grow. After 8 years here, I have gotten to know many members very well, and I know that I am their first choice to call when they need lending help. I have been able to assist thousands of members with their car loan needs and constantly find myself wondering if the car I am next to in traffic is a car that I helped finance.

Working for UFCU is more than just a job.

I sincerely believe our lives are given value through the connections and positive differences we make in the lives of others. At UFCU, we have made “relationships are all there is” an integral part of our corporate philosophy. Outside of my own family, the connections made with our members and my coworkers are where I find my greatest opportunities to help make changes for the better. The strong leadership and support we receive every day make my job a joy, and I’m grateful and proud to be a part of such an outstanding organization.

I love being a part of educating our members. It is a wonderful moment when I’ve taken something that appears complex and frightening and helped a member to see it as simple and understandable. Every day, I have the opportunity to shine a light for someone and improve his or her day and life in some small manner. I can’t imagine a more fulfilling way to have spent a part of my life than being a helping hand to so many wonderful people. I know, without a doubt, that UFCU has given me the opportunity to be a positive influence in the lives of others, and I will always be grateful for that.

I’m excited to go to work every day at UFCU.

I have worked in several different departments and different roles over the past 10 years at UFCU, and I can truly say that everyone is part of my second family. Everyone is there to lend a hand and answer any questions, and we all genuinely care about each other. I wake up every morning excited to go to work, not only to help our members, but also to see my coworkers.

Finances and financial wellbeing are tough topics that were never really discussed much in the past. Now, however, financial responsibility and wellness are important for our future. As a mortgage loan officer, my job is to guide our members in one of the biggest and most expensive financial decisions of their lives.

As tough as my job is, I get the most satisfaction from knowing that I was able to help a member purchase a home for their future, whether it’s their first home or a bigger home for a growing family. I truly enjoy the opportunity to help our members invest in their financial futures!

It’s all about relationships at UFCU.

I love working for UFCU. We have such great employees here, and everyone treats it like we are one huge family. It’s so awesome to work for a company where we all have the same common goal, which is to provide our members with great service and to care for their wellbeing. Management is amazing, and from top to bottom, we are committed to excellence.

Our members make it easy to take care of them. Most of them chose us because they heard of the great service we provide, and this means they’re patient and kind to us. One of the biggest compliments we can receive is for our members to tell their friends and family about us, so we can continue to earn their business. I love hearing the stories of things going on personally and professionally with our members. What I love most are the relationships that are built on a daily basis that last and last.

UFCU lives up to its values.

UFCU lives and thrives by its values. What drive those values are people. The adage that “relationships are all there is” is our mainstay. In Finance, we serve, support, and develop relationships with our internal members who directly serve our UFCU members. I love being a part of an organization that focuses on deepening relationships and developing its employees.

Observing people grow and develop every day is inspiring. Growing with them is rewarding. The constant growth I see in people challenges me to see things in new and different ways, and these challenges are also rewarding. In the end, the rewards I experience come from the people I connect with. People matter.

Biggest advocate

I’ve had the honor/privilege of working at UFCU for 5 years now. I still recall reading the sentence, “At UFCU our focus is on people, not profits,” and thinking that this would be the perfect company for me. Five years later, they have not only lived up to those expectations, but they’ve exceeded them! As a result, I’m now one of the credit union’s biggest advocates, and being in Business Development couldn’t be a better fit for me to share the credit union’s mission, values, and benefits with our community!

Being part of the UFCU team is being part of something great. The mission, the attitude, and the goals are all set with our members in mind. I’m part of a credit union pushing forward with world-class customer service! While I do serve our members indirectly, I do enjoy enabling others who have direct contact. Keeping the service desk working like a well-oiled machine will help limit delays in servicing our members. This translates into a better customer service experience, and that drives success for everyone!
