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

Pros

The position at Fannie Mae might be somewhat intimidating with all of the news out right now. But, I've found it to be rewarding because you are helping homeowners everyday. Managers and above are very invested in your career because they are focused on reducing turnover and building talent from within.

Cons

The media is obviously a downfall. A lot of people ask some pretty tough questions when they hear that you work at Fannie Mae. But, the upside of that is if you work in Internal Audit, your response is that you are helping make it a better place

    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

    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.
