If you demonstrate your skills, you can advance quite quickly

Business Analyst III (Current Employee)
Washington, DC

ProsExtremely flexible work schedule (can arrange telecommute options with many managers), very intelligent workforce, open to new ideas and innovation, supportive management that is interested in promoting from within and cultivating career development

ConsUpper management has too much of the government mentality and has difficulties in making decisions and choosing directions, decent amount of politics and infighting among upper management, uncertainty of what the future holds as the government discusses various options (although all are far out into the future)

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management needs to begin treating the organization as a "for profit" entity and start driving initiatives as if they were in the real world. There isn't much of a sense of urgency to reform the organization.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

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