    Pros

    Work from home opportunities.
    Fair compensation and benefits as compared to most companies this size
    Many really nice people work there.

    Cons

    As a software developer you have to deal with a lot of bureaucracy. Very boring work too. Disorganized projects ie several contractors working on a single project at different times results in poor documentation and many inconsistencies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some people with fresh ideas.

    I have been working at Fannie Mae full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work at the center of housing finance with smart people doing ambitious things. We have bonus pool and merit raises back although they are limited. Very flexible workplace. Lots of the benefits of a finance company with more flexibility and laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    Of course there is lots of bureacracy since it is a large company. Plus there is uncertainty about the future. Can be very political.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what youre doing. Moving in the right direction.
