Bureaucracy, Inefficiency, and Complicated

Former Employee - Senior Financial Controller

I worked at Freddie Mac

Pros

Nice cafeteria. As a contractor, I could come and go as necessary. Learned a lot and was able to stretch and grow job wise.

Cons

To much over-time for full-time employees concerning tasks that are in 'hurry up and wait status'. Wait long enough and these tasks will go away and morph into something else.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Freddie has a long bureaucracy which leads to inefficiency. Your a complicated natured business. You need to become more effective and need to figure out your value add as well as initiate better management processes.
