    Current Employee - Contractor for Internal IT in Herndon, VA

    I have been working at Fannie Mae as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Contractors are treated with respect (there is a division between FTE & Contractor but its only in terms of information sharing on corporate activities), flexibility in work hours, overall good people to work with (pretty much everyone cares), work-life balance

    Cons

    Over governance of the environment, too many disparate tools used to automate governance (creates additional workload), expect a project to take 2 to 3 times longer to execute, everything is governed at the same level (creating undue burden... a project that should have taken 6 weeks took 5 months from beginning to end), exceptionally difficult to get approved for overtime as a contractor, politics (like any organization) do impact projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    right size governance so one size does not fit all.
