    Pros

    Great environment, flexible work schedule, knowledgeable peer and management, always informed of program, very informative, enjoyable work environment, great benefits, great location.

    Cons

    I really can not say that there are too many cons from my perspective other than the lack of availability for promotions. I have gone above and beyond in my position and and have not been promoted or compensated accordingly.

    I have been working at Freddie Mac

    Pros

    People are great to work with. Good location. If you are a self starter, proactive and a hard worker you will learn alot & will have alot of career options.

    Cons

    At this point in time, there is very little 'work life balance'. If that's what you are looking for right now, this is not the place for you....high stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management is viewed as 'uncaring' and is not engaged or aware of worloads. The expectation is staff will do what it takes to get the job done, regardless of how 'burned out' the employee or team is.

    Doesn't Recommend
