Fannie Mae is important to the secondary mortgage market and affordable housing, but also a soul-crushing place to work.

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

Pros

Great compensation and benefits, interesting work.

Cons

Petty management, lots of rot in middle management, corporate culture still very old-school.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remove the bureaucratic layers of management to make way for more staff and lower level managers; get rid of poor performers and bad people managers.

    I assisted with administrative tasks, and didn't really get a chance to do meaningful work.

    I have been working at Fannie Mae as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The work was very easy and stress-free. My manager was on a dirrerent floor, so I was not micromanaged. My hours were relatively flexible. I was allowed to order my own office supplies.

    Cons

    My work did not challenge me. While I had a strong accounting and financial background, my work consisted only of attending meetings, taking notes, and following up with project managers about open items from the meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place more value on interns and invest the time to train them properly.
