Featured Review

Current Employee - Manager

I have been working at Sallie Mae full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Excellent IT management Promotional opportunities Educational advancement supported Personal investment in employees Great benefits

Cons

Nothing avoidable, goes along with IT...long hours, early am calls or overnight problem resolutions. Not really a "con", but should be expected within IT.

Advice to Management

Thank you for all the growth opportunities and technical challenges!

Current Employee - ELearning Developer

I have been working at Freddie Mac full-time

Pros

I cannot say enough great things about this company. The benefits are robust, they care about work life balance, and the pay is very competitive. Starting vacation is 3 weeks, teleworking is... permitted (depending on your manager), and they offer a first time homeowners benefit. The people here are smart, friendly, and truly have a passion for what they do. I'm very fortunate to work for such an amazing company.

Cons

Only one--too much red tape when it comes to implementing a new idea which slows down the process significantly.
