    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.

    I have been working at Flagstar Bancorp full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a friendly and positive atmosphere in the department where I work. People work well together and management is fair and supportive of employees.

    Cons

    Company is still working to overcome challenges of the down economy. Customer service agents present less than professional front to customers. Proper grammar should be a minimum requirement for agents. Frustrating that all employees, including salaried, are required to punch a time clock.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve customer experience by hiring higher quality customer service agents to begin with and then take a look at training, especially servicing new hire.

    Competitive pay, normal hours, good benefits, good PTO, opportunity to move up

    HR is VERY slow processing promotions, 5+ years before PTO increase or promotion, poor executive management structure ("reorganizations" are very common. Ive been hear 14 months and already 3 reorgs in my department)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay UW's and lower level managers better because you are losing them to competitors, provide a better promotion from within plan.
