No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Close commute. My manager offers a flexible schedule and my team works well together.

Still using MS Windows 2003. Technology is archaic and there is no training. Zero professional growth.

Advice to Management

Google search Big Data and Data Science. Move beyond Excel 2003 for BI and analytics.

    I worked at Fannie Mae as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Objectivity of consultant's role helps drive employee results and focus which is also easier on departmental politics.

    Cons

    High level of governance which takes priority over all other objectives. Difficult to change process surrounding governance. Sign-offs required regardless of logic if it is a governance item.

    Advice to Management

    Decide what is really important (governance vs. delivery) and provide incentives based on those objectives
