Depends on business unit- Single Family is great, Finance is awful culture, work and miserable leadership.

I have been working at Fannie Mae full-time for more than a year

Pros

reasonable pay/benefits, good office locations, a lot of smart people work there

Cons

no leadership, zero collaboration at the VP and above level so nothing gets done. Company performance is inconsequential (in how FHFA manages the company and its future) so officers and above are caught in a constant political witch hunt. This causes long and exhausting hours- to recreate things multiple times based on latest top-dog. Terrible morale, especially within Finance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

start taking responsibility of the miserable state of Finance division's affairs

    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 full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, professional atmosphere, good facilities.

    Cons

    Lack of direction, increasingly political, multiple HQ locations (hard to meet people productively)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees better (the problems aren't their fault), don't set direction without knowing where you want to go.
