    Tremendous opportunity to help millions of people.

    Cons

    Conservatorship leaves little room for innovation.
    Unlikely to emerge from current troubles.
    Culture of survival is hard to navigate.
    Talented leadership does not last.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying about survival and embrace the company's mission - strengthening the housing market and serving those who need it most.

    I have been working at Fannie Mae full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Moderately competitive salaries and benefits; mission of company has merit.

    Cons

    Government set on winding down company; job security is nonexistent for many technology workers who may be targeted for outsourcing; many employees stretched thin and stressed out; generally an environment where it is hard to identify a hopeful future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unlikely you can make lemonade out of these lemons.
