I worked at Fannie Mae full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Compensation, Benefits, Interesting Work, really diverse. You will learn alot really quickly (steap learning curve); if you deal with the external noise its still a great place to begin a career. Contrary to popular belief they are still in the "American Dream Business"...........

Cons

Unwarranted Negative Reputation of the company caused by the general public's lack of understanding of what the company actually does. General level of low moral around the company. somewhat of a good old boys network in in middle management: Really diverse at the the very top and very bottom level of the hierarchy

    I have been working at Fannie Mae full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are very high compared to other places to work. Churn in employees creates many opportunities to take on new responsibilities or branch out in new directions.

    Cons

    Long term stability is questionable at best. Promotions are hard to come by without applying for a new job in a different group.

    I have been working at Fannie Mae full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Co-workers were wonderful and the Dallas are is a nice place to live!

    Cons

    Management is inept and pretends to care about quality of the review when, in truth, a quota is really the driving factor. Also, too many layers of management that are not on the same page. Morale is very low amongst the QA reviewers. Too bad since these are the people who, next to underwriting, are really the ones with the responsibility of making the decision to "get the people's money back".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn your job and stop being afraid to talk to one another and the team that is under you. Be respectful of them -- they are the one's that make you look good to your manager and the ones that can make you look bad. Also remember that they gave-up a lot to move to Dallas. Don't take that lightly when you decide who's badge will work in the morning and whose won't.
