Workload increase, decreased individual autonomy over the years

IT Associate (Former Employee)
McLean, VA

I worked at Freddie Mac full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood salary, benefits, company cafeteria
Depends very much which area/team one is in.

ConsMany newcomers to the company in recent years, eager to establish themselves at all costs.
People looking out for themselves more than for the organization/others.
Yearly re-org in IT in last few years, resulting in layoffs and employees being re-assigned to any open position.
Management turn-over resulting in change in focus/direction.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
