Not awful but certainly not good

I have been working at Freddie Mac full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Flexible work arrangements, easy work schedule for non senior employees.

Cons

Low employee morale, high turnover, lack of aptitude in some departments, no pay increases (aside from promotion)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do something to retain talent. Most of the talented employees have left and most of the people remaining have no motivation. Certain areas prosper and have talent but the majority of departments are lacking.

    I worked at Freddie Mac full-time

    Pros

    Nice Facility
    Great Cafeteria
    Gym, Basketball Court, On-site Wellness Center, Some departments have teleworking opportunities. Ed Haldeman was a great CEO who unfortunately decided to leave.

    Cons

    Uncertainty about the future of the company has caused a lot of very talented employees to jump ship. Many not so talented employees are sticking around and waiting to get a nice severance package. Unable to attract quality Execs due to the new 500k cap in Salaries. New CEO does not seem as qualified for the position. Market Based Compensation has slashed a lot of salaries.

    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Freddie Mac

    Pros

    Big company, stable employment, flexible work arrangement, there are lots of opportunities to learn at work and in general about the whole financial market

    Cons

    politics may exist in some groups, but not every where in the company, promotion is not easy if you do not play it well
