Pros

Heres some pros to working at fannie mae
great benefits
good location
not a lot of long hours
great experience

Cons

there seems to be a lot of cons recently with Fannie Mae. The management does a poor job of developing their staff. There seems to be contractors everywhere for every job, which causes a knowledge gap issue. Poor recognition by management for quality reviews.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

HR should look to do more of a people manager assessment prior to hiring for management position. Most of the employees there don't leave cause of Fannie but cause of the Management!
