Nestled in the heart of downtown Detroit, mortgage-lending company Quicken Loans is all about employee satisfaction. Women can take up to three months of maternity leave, communication and openness is encouraged throughout the workplace hierarchy and each week, workers are allowed four hours to develop any creative ideas — even if they aren’t company-related. Quicken Loans is committed to revitalizing the city’s neighborhoods and offers incentives to employees who live downtown. “Working at Quicken Loans is not just about working in the mortgage industry or working with technology,” said divisional vice-president of business consulting LaShandra Sartor, who has been with the company for 11 years. “We are really on a mission to change the way that people look at Detroit and to really focus on creating opportunities throughout the city of Detroit for our team members.” Read the Great Place to Work review.
