    I have been working at Fannie Mae

    Pros

    The purpose of FANNIE MAE (contrary to public opinion) is essential to the health of our economy.
    There are some individuals passionate about the purpose and remain comitted to doing what's right.
    For a long time, FANNIE MAE was well funded for IT projects and initiatives; its a shame, since so much was squandered in the wrong directions.

    Cons

    The TECHNOLOGY division is filled with both inexperienced and incompetent individuals. The resources are highly inbred, so the dysfunction is challenging to address.
    Violations of standards and policy is rampant, excused away by a sense of entitlement or expediency. I suspect most of it is based on inexperience.
    I have never seen so many MANAGERS act unprofessionally during meetings, seeking to conceal their incompetence.
    They are steadily outsourcing IT functions to managed service providers; while unfortunate for some, quality employees, this is the merciful method to address the problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The toughest challenges are still to come. The course will be difficult to maintain, but outsourcing has the consequence of removing much good flesh with the gangerous. You're replacing one problem with a myriad of others.
    Have you considered that middle and upper management is the REAL cause of the issues? Some of the most tenured employees are the source of your challenges.
