I worked at Fannie Mae full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Fantastic employees who are willing to make incredible sacrifices for the company, hours, weekend, work-lie balance. They are a "do what it take" group.

Cons

Technology organization has lost its way. Outsourcing important work to vendors with very junior resources. Change is bad to senior management - technology used to be empowered to provide value to the business. Senior management has erected so many barriers to deployments that it makes months to deploy simple changes to the production environment.

    Pros

    Interesting work and great benefits. Good opportunities to develop skills and get training,

    Cons

    Senior management does not make tough decisions and instead puts off making difficult decisions out of fear of making mistakes, which effectively paralyzes the company from making important changes. Not a lot of rhyme or reason for why some folks get promoted versus others who do not (to get promoted more important who you know and who can elevate you, rather than the caliber of your work).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fewer layoffs and re-train existing personnel rather than keep bringing in new staff. Make the bold decisions to transform the company and worry less about protecting fiefdoms.
