    Pros

    Industry leader. An atmosphere that is professional and satisfying. Location of office offers easy commutes from a wide variety of residential communities supportive of great family environments.

    Cons

    Process of having an employee status for long term hope of career is governed by stages of contractor and term contract status.

    Advice to Management

    Remain focused on long term objectives

    Pros

    The people here are some of the smartest people I've ever been around. Opportunity for promotion for driven individuals

    Cons

    Bureacracy is an issue at Fannie Mae. Decision making may have to go through layers of management. The technology at Fannie is atrocious. Getting access is a nightmare.

    Pros

    Excellent 401K and bonus plans, tuition reimbursement, strong organizational focus, fantastic people, and management focuses on developing people from within.

    Cons

    1. As with most large corporations, red-tape can sometimes slow things down.
    2. Constant 'noise' from the idiot senators and such about shutting them down makes for morale issues at times.

    Advice to Management

    A little more transparency into department goals would be good.

    Pros

    Nice people, good pay and benefits, manageable workload, flexibility, work life balance, listening ear of management, and team oriented culture

    Cons

    It seems as though many teams are short staffed which comes off as desperate when trying to hire. It reduces the negotiating power of Fannie when it comes to recruiting.

    Advice to Management

    Distribute work evenly amongst employees based on staffing needs and hire skills that are lacking
