I worked at Freddie Mac full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Great training opportunities
Great community support
Nice employees
Smart employees
Good career opportunities

Cons

Middle management is completely overloaded
Culture in transition from what it was in its hay day to a mad dash for results with minimal planning.
Leadership views employees as incompetent because they can't meet the unrealistic expectations.
4 reorganizations in the 6 months I worked there. 3 more in the 5 months since I left.
Lots of layoffs occurring which creates unstable employment environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Push hard for results ... it is required; however, establish realistic expectations. Check in on your middle management to see how they are. Care about them and help them manage their stress. You need them to be engaged.
