    Great company to work for.

    Methodologists (Former Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsThis company is really into work life balance. When I was there, they offered childcare, lactation rooms, health facility, elder care, meals to go, bonded house sitters, etc. Your life could be balanced from birth to death; thus allowing you to work with fewer life stressors.

    ConsSometimes, management could be cold and unfeeling. While I never experienced this, I did witness this on a couple of occasions.

    Great Place for Opportunity

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLike the people, the work, location. Grow within, so if hired, you have lots of opportunity for a long career within the company.

    ConsI really dont have anything bad to say. Not all the jobs at Fannie allow to work from home, but thats more of a perk.
