Started out great, but ended miserably... sinking ship of back stabbing, arrogant egomaniacs.

Pros

There are lots of smart, hard working people there that you can learn a lot from. The compensation and benefits are among the best in DC.

Cons

Morale is terrible. Senior executives tend to build their empires with like-minded people and differing opinions, push-back etc. are not well tolerated. The place is crawling with know-it-alls that take credit for everything good (whether they had responsibility or not), but blame others when their own ideas blowup or fail. Most people who advance more by Will than Skill and Confidence over Competence. Turnover and restructurings are constant. In 8 months I had six managers.

Advice to Management

Welcome differing opinions; stop playing personal politics; reward people for their contributions to the company, not because of their popularity with senior management. Stop wasting taxpayer money.

    Pros

    If you are looking for a stable office enviornment, Fannie Mae is a good place to be. Established during the great depression to give potential homebuyers credit when the banks were not willing to lend money, this company is not going anywhere.

    Cons

    Do you really want to tell your friends and family that you work for Fannie Mae? Also, not a good place for contractors looking to get hired on.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to better manage contractors.
