    Work life balance is good. Pretty easy to move around the company

    Sometimes unstructured and you will work on things that don't end up being for anything

    Pros

    Great co-workers and work environment. I probably has the best manager in the company but not all manager is the same. Flexible work schedule and decent benefits. 6% 401k, 10k tuition assistant, 15 days vacations per year (20 days when you get to 3 years), and lot of growth opportunity.

    Cons

    I can't think of any.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep up the good work and be more generous to your employees :)

    Pros

    Working with others that will help to advice your skills using different soft wares. Not being looked at as just an intern but a full time employee. Having many events to enjoy great weather.

    Cons

    There are no cons to interning at a great company.

    Pros

    Excellent support and opportunities. One of the best firms that I have been involved with in the last 10 years. An excellent portfolio of opportunities. Great benefits and a forward looking company.

    Cons

    There are no negative things I have to say about Fannie Mae. I was always engaged on success orientated projects and once completed had ample opportunity to find a new niche for myself.
