    I worked at Quicken Loans as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    AN AMAZING CULTURE. Every single person I met was patient, kind, and more than willing to help. Working in Detroit was also a really cool experience. Campus Martius is beautiful and full of life. Lots of free food :) Very flexible if you have doctors appointments, have vacation plans, and/or are taking summer classes. You just have to make sure you get your work done, as you would expect. MANY opportunities for networking including events and shadowing different people within the company. For example I had the amazing privilege of shadowing Bill Emerson! Not many people can say they were able to shadow the CEO of their company, but at Quicken Loans anything is possible. Lots of perks such as tours of Detroit, free events (ie TIGERS GAMES!) and free parking downtown all week and weekend long.

    Cons

    Intern hours are typically 9am-6pm. Some people find that long, but you get a full hour for lunch plus two 15 minute paid breaks. Plus, they say if you do what you love you never work a day in your life, and that's honestly how I felt each minute of this internship. I only put this in the Cons as a heads up to those who aren't willing to work hard and dedicate most of their summer to this program (which aren't really cons, if you ask me :) ).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the amazing things that you are doing within the company, as well as what you're doing for Detroit!

    Training is great and compensation is unbelievable if you're good. If you're not, you're poor. 60 hours a week minimum.

    I worked at Quicken Loans full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Compensation. Lack of pre-requisites. Dress code. Day flies past, despite it usually being a 12-14 hour work day. If you do well, you will be promoted, no questions asked.

    Cons

    Regardless of what you are told, you will not have much of a life outside of Quicken Loans. Also, the culture seems to be breaking down a bit. It used to be supportive and optimistic. Now it feels like you're standing on the edge of a cliff everyday unless you're top 5% in production

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that driving your employees into the ground isn't the way to motivate. If someone accepts a job at Quicken Loans, they want to work hard. When numbers aren't as robust as you or the executives want, stop bashing people and show some support. Re-evaluate how you're motivating people.

    Pros

    Just after my first week, I felt that I had been working at the company for months. The staff is very welcoming and everyone works as a team. You won't find bureaucracy here! The company is very forward thinking and constantly evolving. Another bonus, there is almost always free lunch. There is a lot of room for personal growth as well.

    Cons

    Many people will say that they work long hours. That very much depends on your role at the company. The mortgage bankers typically work long hours. The other sectors of the company work standard hours. Be careful who you ask when asking about the company.

    Pros

    You can make good money when you produce. The culture is very high level. The technology is phenomenal. Not a company where you will be complaining about people not doing their job. If you are single, and care only about making money or advancing your career, great opportunity to be financially successful and grow. Lot of opportunity to be promoted and advance if you are willing to sacrifice your personal life.

    Cons

    You will work. And then you will stay late. And then you will be expected to work the weekend. The days are long, and there is no down time. You are there to work, and prospect as many clients as they can shove down your throat. They want to gain market share, and don't care about turnover. It's a short career for most that are hired. Not a role you want if you care about family and spending time with them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should really focus on the overall well being of your people. You clearly don't care about turnover, and the focus is on training the newest bankers to be as productive as possible in the shortest amount of time. it's clearly not on retaining the dedicated bankers, or finding ways to keep them happy. You focus on quantity not quality of prospective leads, which doesn't bother you on paper because the culture drives results. However, the mindset of bankers is not a priority, while it clearly should be. If anyone tries to speak out, it's viewed as complaining and not being dedicated enough. This can't be summarized on paper for a 2 minute huddle though. When directors are stepping down monthly, clearly there is a push from the top down that is squeezing every last drop out of those willing to give all they have.

    Pros

    Endless coffee. Endless coffee. Yes, lots of coffee.

    Cons

    If you are a software engineer who actually understands the importance of things such as run-time complexity and documentation of code, stay far away from this place. They might be rated #1 in IT by some commercial magazine, but they certainly do not employ skilled engineers or emphasize good coding practices. Guys who dropped out of community college run entire dev teams and act as enforcers of one of the worst implementations of scrum I've ever encountered. Of course, it all makes sense when you consider what they pay these people -- to put it another way, QL thinks they can pay 20% below market value and attract top tech talent. LOL, sorry. Not in this market Dan.
