Pros

If you can find one of the highly motivated groups within the company, you will be surrounded by people who are intellectually engaged, genuinely want to do the right thing, and can have fun together.

The benefits are also pretty nice, especially the housing subsidy if you're going to be there for a long time.

Cons

It can be difficult to find necessary information, unless you're one of the people who have been around forever and know whom to call.

Some parts of the company are not highly motivated, and are a drag on the rest of us.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More important than having leaner processes, we badly need to have faster processes. We talk a lot about "providing value," but until we're willing to prune our policies to match what we're actually willing to enforce, we will continue to be a nightmare for some lenders to deal with.

    I felt pretty good about my job and Fannie Mae prior to the conservatorship in 2008. Things have been different since.

    Pros

    Pay and Benefits but with that is happening. The benefits are just on par.

    Cons

    Dishonesty and the back stabbing. Performance reviews are are horrible. The worst thing they just assigned me an end date of Octoberr 2011. Be sure to ask your HR rep of your end date.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some skills. You will need for the job market.
