    I have been working at Freddie Mac full-time (More than 10 years)


    Great work-life balance. Flex schedules and easy to accommodate different work schedules. Good people to work with although the current organizational flattening makes it very difficult for promotion. company is stressing lateral movements to keep developing.


    High performers are not rewarded much more differently than average performers (1-2% in salary raises). The need to improve and innovate is reduced due to the lack of true competition and all profits being taken by the government.

    Advice to Management

    Align incentive and compensation structure more with the corporate goals to achieve organizational change objectives.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Freddie Mac in July 2015.


    It was casual but strange. I was suppose to meet with 3 people on the team. Ended up talking to just the associate, who doesn't make the hiring decision so I was pretty sure I wasn't going to get the job.
