I have been working at Fannie Mae full-time

Pros

Great work life balance, compensation is competitive, & the benefits are better than what most other private companies offer.

Cons

Unclear direction with work & uninformed, occasionally uninterested, management have created a tense working environment where true productivity is sacrificed for political objectives.

    I worked at Fannie Mae

    Pros

    Great compensation and benefits. The company also encourages transferring between groups.

    Cons

    Too many meetings and too many steps in the decision making process... things move very slowly.

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

    Pros

    Great Benefits for first time home buyers, commuters, life -work balance if you have an enlightened work group. Much better benefits and culture when compare to its rival Freddie Mac.

    Cons

    Fannie Mae is currently in receivership so its currently managed by the federal government or FHFA. The company is profitable and going through a revamp no one knows what to expect once the dust settles in a few years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some Directors and VPs at the company stifle growth and originality. They also lack vision and should consider the value of a department or team Mission statement to guide growth and process improvements.
