I have been working at Freddie Mac full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

People are very friendly and given the quasi-govt status, much laid back atmosphere.

Cons

Some of the people weren't motivated and occasionally you see people who are very incompetent but still manage to move up the ranks through "friendship and relationship".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please stop "talking" about changes and motivation but rather make the place really driven by skills and performance.

    I worked at Freddie Mac as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Management supports new ideas and allows people to work overtime (with pay) as long as deadlines are met.
    They have a good selection of food at the cafeteria too. :)

    Cons

    Security are not customer friendly. They are more conscious in checking badges. They wanted the employees and contractors to stretch out their badges and show it to their faces.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shuffle the employees, including the security personnel. They get too relax on their position. They tend to forget the real reason of the institution which is to help the American people secure their well deserve houses.

    I worked at Freddie Mac full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Loyal employees, loyal customers. Allowed to work from home minimum 2 days a week, employees get to choose the days.

    Cons

    Some management have bigheads, forget their jobs and treat employees like numbers. Never praised for good work done. Have chosen employees for all special projects. Don't all senior employees to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teat all direct reports the same, give all employees an opportunity to work on special projects.
