    Pros

    The employees are great, very smart, collaborative, and pleasant to work with. Freddie Mac is also very generous in terms of pay and benefits and has a number of opportunities for professional development.

    Cons

    Due to the "wind down" directive from the government, there are reductions being made across the company. There is not much room for advancement, and lots of bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on retaining your top employees. The moral is on a steady decline which can lead to excessive turnover.

  2. Positive work environment which builds strong bonds with team and management

    Pros

    Teleworking available for most positions, work independently (not micro managed), management offers support and welcomes feedback

    Cons

    Pay structure due to conservatorship is harsh by industry standards. Could mean a pay decrease but the benefits may outweigh the cut (telework options / work life balance)

    Advice to Management

    In order to retain strong professionals and reduce turnover, more recognition and non monetary perks.
