I have been working at Freddie Mac as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

This is based on my 2008 internship (right before the company had to be bailed out) experience. Great people and atmosphere, interesting projects if you're interested in the real estate and financial industries. I was a Java developer, and was happy with the projects I was given. Just the right workload.

Cons

Like many big companies, things can be a little slow, although it can be viewed as a plus by some. It never bothered me, but it could bother other people. I'm not sure what the situation is right now with the company, I've heard things became very different after 2008.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The management was great, I have nothing to suggest -- when I was there, I really liked all the managers.
