Things They Don't Tell You

CONS: If you need to call, plan on waiting 10 minutes minimum to reach a person. I have yet to call them and wait less than 15 minutes to reach a person. Tellers have to do everything/even order checks. A check drawn on CU1 cannot be cashed, if you have an account with them.. I've asked. They refuse. Even checks drawn on CU1 are required to run through your personal account.

PROS: CU1s mobile app is nice, especially the remote deposit. Another way not to have to go there in person.
