    Pros

    Flagstar believes in constant improvement and there are lots of different areas to experience if you have other interests.

    There is a lot of red tape and inconsistent structure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with the other departments rather than competing against them.

    I worked at Flagstar Bancorp full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Compensation is fair, benefits are very good, co workers are wonderful, nice cafe downstairs for breakfast lunch and snacks. Its a business casual atmosphere.

    Cons

    Management is reactive rather than proactive and when the try to be proactive it becomes alot of posturing and nothing really ever gets done effectively and gets put on the back burner. Managers take credit for your work but when there are short comings throw you under the bus to still look good in front of others

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trim the fat. Too many managers hanging around are lame duck managers.

    Pros

    Great benefits program. Work hours are extremely family friendly. Training available to those seeking it. Encouraged to handle customer complaints on your own.

    Flagstar has little room for advancement. Management positions are held by longtime employees. The economy has resulted in layoffs in the company.

    *Benefits
    *Co-workers are like family

    Cons

    *Little room for advancement

    *Pay is on the low side for your position unless you are a hold over from the old regime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please trim the fat. There are too many people that are complacent in their roles just going through the motions. You've lost good people due to cuts in the wrong places

    I have been working at Flagstar Bancorp part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I work in the branch as a personal banker and enjoy working with my team on a daily basis. Management is great as long as you meet or exceed your goals. Work/school/life balance is great and they are really flexible.

    Cons

    Loan goals can be stressful at times. Very hard to get promoted within. A lot of ass kissing is necessary to get what you want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start hiring within the company instead of outsiders.

    I have been working at Flagstar Bancorp full-time

    Pros

    There are many good people that do a lot for their community and genuinely care for others, especially customers and coworkers.

    Cons

    Departments are like nuclear missile silos, especially the large generic departments like marketing. They either don't think to communicate and share info, or they don't want to. At times it is like 100 little companies, instead of 1. The officers club also exists like the military in the 1950's. Non-Officers don't communicate with officers outside their direct reports.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Force your employees to share information across teams and titles. Job titles are just a function, not a symbol or culture of your status.
