    Pros

    As an intern, you are treated as an equal and they make sure to train you for the banking environment just as they would for any other role.

    At other companies, a peer was my mentor. At Flagstar, my supervisor was my mentor and she made sure that I was recieving the best experience possible by introducing me to technologies that would help to advance my career. More importantly, she was never too busy for me and was willing to spend as much time to help me gain an understanding as to what is expected. She wanted me to know what my role was and to be able to confidently talk about my tasks. This is not the type of internship filled with fetching coffee for the superiors and filing. They definitely expose you to important tasks that are meaningful to the company.

    Aside from learning my role, I was also encouraged to explore other roles by setting up short meetings so that I can watch their day-to-say activities. This is helpful for those who are undecided in what they want to pursue an advanced degree in because you have the opportunity to watch each role in a work environment opposed to classroom curriculum.

    I can't say enough good things about this internship experience. Not only do they want you to succeed while working for them, but also in your future career.

    Cons

    Very short internship (3 months) with no opportunity for job placement afterwards. No benefits.

    Pros

    A great work enviornment with some of the most knowledgable, experienced, and hardworking people in their fields. Team work is off the charts. The rapid pace of change and being at a company who is at the top of their industry is exciting. While a lot of the senior management has changed all the existing and new management are committed and very accessable. The culture is evolving and there seems to be committment from the top to continue improving it. Ability to provide feedback and see change is great. The corporate committment to grow and expand each business line provides a lot of opportunity. Employee recognition and development continues to grow. Employee perks for financial services is great. Really appreciate the work/life balance.

    Cons

    Past poor financial history and management has made it difficult to change the culture as this takes time. It continues to improve each day.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to build the culture and invest in development and accountability of employees. Further investment in technology internal and external.

    I worked at Flagstar Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. The employees there are professional and polite. Great place to work if you live near by.

    Cons

    It is a far commute to Troy from Southgate. You deal with people's lives and home, essentially. It can be stressful at first because it is a lot however, can be very rewarding.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to provide training in a bigger room while getting refresher courses or supplemental training. I liked the redroom more than the grey :) Training should be more thorough and provide exercises to get better understanding.
