I have been working at Freddie Mac full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Home ownership is a great mission and the people are mostly very nice.

Cons

Since we're in "conservatorship" our salaries are frozen and we're wrongly blamed for recession by idiots who don't understand how things work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Doing good job - - keep it up.

    Good experience, but wrong atmosphere

    Current Employee - Summer Analyst in McLean, VA
    Current Employee - Summer Analyst in McLean, VA

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

    Pros

    The employees are very friendly, work life balance is solid, the work itself isn't overly stressful, nice exposure to management.

    Cons

    Obviously due to the recent shake ups in the industry and company the atmosphere is pretty strange. There are serious turn over problems, and the uncertainty of where the company will be in a couple years is constantly hanging over everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be frank about the possibilities of what is in store for the company to quiet speculation and uncertainty.

    A good place to start your career, great work life balance, not much room for upward mobility.

    I have been working at Freddie Mac full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits such as Flexible Working Arrangements-teleworking, compressed schedules.

    Cons

    high turnover of management and employees, no room for upward mobility. Compensation is limited, no bonuses due to conservatorship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay at the company for a long period of time and not just 1 year.
