My Navy Federal teammates have been incredibly supportive! I’ve done a lot of learning and growing in my professional life over the past year, and I’m grateful for their support and encouragement.

Kendall P., summer intern

As part of my summer project, I wanted to learn about best practices in product management from teams around Navy Federal. I didn’t expect everyone I reached out to be so generous with their time in helping to answer my questions.
