The perfect employer for the employee that wants a work life balance and doesn't need long term employment security

ProsThe best part of Freddie Mac was the people, cafeteria, location, facilities, and the relocation package. Freddie Mac'ers are great to work with and are friendly and welcoming to newbies.

ConsExecutive leadership was a revolving door and objectives changed on a regular basis. A lot of the co-workers had been there or Fannie Mae for years and they are a little stuck in their ways. It is a very slow pace environment if you are coming from corporate america. It is probably the same pace if you are coming from a fed. government position based on my observations. No way to earn salary increase or bonus unless you leave so a lot of talented people have left but many of the talented life-ers are sticking it out till the end.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
