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

Pros

The people at Freddie Mac were definitely good people to work with. Most people were nice and warm. Most senior people were also very accessible. The cafeteria also had excellent food. I felt a sense of community there with the active employee networks.

Cons

Given the time I was there, I didn't see a future with the company. There wasn't much room for growth. Also not much salary growth.

    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.
