If you are under 40 or a female, the NCUA may be an especially good place to work.
The agency was ranked the best federal agency to work for employees under 40 and the fourth best place for women, according to a survey by the Partnership for Public Service.
Overall, the agency was ranked the 16th best of the 35 small federal agencies to work for, up from 23rd last year.
The NCUA ranked seventh in training and development, 11th in pay and 16th for the level of respect that employees have for senior leaders.
More than 376,000 federal employees participated in the survey.
NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz said she is pleased by the results and noted that one of her goals since taking office in 2009 is to make the agency a better place to work.
“We are especially gratified that women and young professionals, including many of our newest employees, view NCUA as a workplace where their careers can flourish. NCUA’s employees are our most valuable asset, and we are working together to improve the workplace environment through open communications and partnerships,’’ Matz said.
It’s the second survey in which NCUA employees gave the agency high marks.
Earlier this year, in a survey by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, the NCUA ranked in the top 10 for talent management, results-oriented performance culture and job satisfaction.
