Former Employee - Technical Support in Troy, MI (US)
Former Employee - Technical Support in Troy, MI (US)

I worked at Flagstar Bancorp full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Ok benefits and time off

Cons

Hour Lunch turns the day into almost 8.5 hours / 7.5 hour days (37.5 hour work week).
Too many micromanagers (has to be a vice president for every 5 workers).
If you aren't friends with someone you don't move up in the company.
There is a reason they got out of two other markets..
Stick to one dress code.. Casual most of the week, once a week shirt and tie, etc. No one cares what they are wearing as long as it looks professional.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognizing people for their accomplishments is nice but when you don't offer them any promotions or compensation what's the point in staying?

    I have been working at Flagstar Bancorp

    Pros

    Good physical work environment, coworkers, ease of hiring process.

    Cons

    Goals and processes change rapidly, communication regarding changes lags behind, and the company and employees seem to operate from the perspective of trying to keep the business they have and gain more, while employees seem to operate from the perspective of trying to attain ever changing and varied/vague goals and keep their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clarify goals, require managers to have regular meetings or reviews with their employees. It has been over a year without any positive and constructive performance review of any type.
