I worked at Flagstar Bancorp full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Can't think of any real positives. Maybe that there is a half decent cafe on site but its too expensive.

Cons

professionals have to punch in and out like factory workers. Timecard is watched like a hawk
seems like everyone is unhappy. Its a very depressing environment

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Support your staff, get rid of useless middle management that don't know what they are doing.

    I was promoted from within and given room to grow, but remain very underpaid and slightly overworked.

    I have been working at Flagstar Bancorp

    Pros

    New hires are generally well paid and given opportunities to establish themselves. Support for training and professional development is also generally high. The bank is also frequently investigating or implementing new systems to bolster it's mortgage and lending platforms.

    Cons

    At times management and it's actions completely disconnect from reality in the IT department. IT makes solving problems long term very difficult. I can't speak for banking. The new management seems to be aligning the banking and lending arms with the needs of small businesses and mortgage consumers well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company used to have a very "Family Owned" feel to it. There were minor social events which brought the various people and areas of the bank together, if only briefly. I know the more sarcastic employees scoffed at these gestures, but they did have an impact on overall morale and the familiarity of people within various business groups.

    I worked at Flagstar Bancorp full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    good location
    good pay
    easy hours
    No supervision

    Cons

    Worst place I have ever worked.
    No one cares about doing a good job.
    Salaried employees clock in like they are hourly workers.
    Everyone is very unprofessional.
    Profanity flies in the office.
    Always willing to point finger at others.
    The morale is horrible and the leaders have a 'morale boosting' committee that is a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all the management in IT and start over.
