Pros

Cons

Warning to All. Do not work for this company. This is the worst place that I have worked as a contractor. The working environment for a contract worker is below standards As a contract worker you are not involved in any team meetings that relates to your job. Nor are you able to give feedback about your day to day job duties.. Management has absolutely no communication with their contract workers. Due to the inadequate computer system there is a problem daily with the work flow . The management structure allows the contract workers to do all or most of the day to day work while the staff does very little. The objective of the company is to use contract workers for as along as they can and then let you go and make pathetic excuses as to why they had to get rid of you. If you are looking for great pay, great working environment, and growth this is NOT the place for you.

Advice to Management

Communicate to your team which includes your contract workers. Stop treating your contract workers like outsiders. They are also apart of your staff

    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.
