    I worked at Fannie Mae full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very easy days -- come in late, leave early, and not many people seem to be concerned. Maternity leave is fantastic. Great PTO.

    Cons

    Takes forever to get anything through the system. Still appears quasi-government. Seem to value external hires for higher positions -- hard to break-in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring some innovative practices into the system; taking years to get simply concepts passed is damaging to your profits.
