We know that monetary rewards are nice (and necessary), and we also know it takes more than money to motivate and energize success. In addition to compensation, we offer eligible employees:

  • Medical, dental and vision coverage, and disability insurance
  • Matched 401(k) plan to help prepare for retirement
  • Voluntary life insurance to protect families if the worst should occur
  • Paid Family Medical Leave (up to 12 weeks)
  • Generous sick and vacation time package
  • 11 paid holidays per year

“The Emerging Leaders Program at First Federal Lakewood helped grow my communication and interpersonal skillset. In my role, effective communication with all areas of the bank is important to make sure that we comply with various laws and regulations. It is empowering that First Federal Lakewood invests in employees to make sure we can develop our skills and advance our careers.”

“We adapted a program called Cultivate™ that has given our Retail team the foundation to accelerate individual, team and organizational growth. Our branch teams meet weekly to train on specific development topics, share ideas and connect as a team. We also take the time to meet individually to strengthen both personal and professional relationships including employee recognition.”
