    Pros

    The IT department within Flagstar uses cutting edge technologies.

    Cons

    Flagstar has a highly politically charged atmosphere with favoritism shown blatantly by all ranks of management. Management seems more interested in supporting initiatives that promote personal growth rather than align themselves with company's growth. As a result, too many bad decisions on a daily basis have become the norm.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to start showing respect to their peers and their juniors. They need to engage people from all ranks, and stop assuming that making employees wear business suits everyday will improve the image of the company. Company image improves because of the inherent pride that employees have about their workplace. Pride comes from feeling empowered, from knowing that using their own judgement and serving the customer to their total satisfaction comes before pleasing upper management, and waiting for their explicit approval.

    There are many natural leaders in the organization, but unfortunately tthey are not the ones leading the company. Ones that echo their bosses thoughts and sentiments are the ones in upper management ranks. Why pay someone, just to hear their own voice? Would they rather not have people who think with a fresh perspective and are happy to share their ideas?
