What is paid time off like at Freddie Mac?

Pros

- competitive compensation - unmatched benefits, such as student loan aid, compensation for additional education, 401k match, PTO, and paid holidays. - emphasis on work-life balance - beneficial exposure to the industry and all facets of the company - diversity - Freddie offers arguably the most opportunity to quickly learn the multifamily industry and quickly gain exposure and unmatched experience. - opportunities to travel - opportunity to move up quickly - top performers can be quickly recognized and rewarded accordingly

Cons

- Culture - Team hierarchy was constantly challenged by subordinate employees or other teams. Company politics often played a significant role in all decisions, whether the decision was made by a department head or team lead. It was surprisingly apparent how the direction of the department or section of the department would change based on internal politics. - Competition - Iternal competition can be healthy, and encourage strong performance. However, competition between employees of similar positions was frequently highlighted and used as an intimidation tactic, versus to reward or encourage. Office/Company politics often played a larger role and heavily influenced internal competition, leaving employees with the impression they were fighting their co-workers for promotions or compensation increases. - Transparency - Many times pertinent information about operations or important decisions made by senior management was released to the public before the firm’s own employees were made aware. On more than one occasion, external clients or partners would provide an update that had not been delivered internally yet.

Does Freddie Mac offer massages?

Pros

Mostly stress-free work, good benefits for full-time employees

Cons

Diversity is preached, but not practiced. Every single manager and director in my dept. except one is white. The rest of us apparently should just be happy to have jobs. Some of the diversity efforts are just embarrassing at this point. Also, offices are still open despite this little thing called Covid.

Does Freddie Mac offer a wellness program?

Pros

Good benefits, opportunity to learn

Cons

Company pretends to care about culture by touting benefits and programs but doesnt actually check on bad behavior. Having worked in three different divisions, I can say with authority that leadership style across company is that of favoritism and fear. Lots of internal politics and beurocracy. Work life balance depends on department and your manager. Promotions given to incompetent employees while hard workers barely get recognized. People here rarely actually care about the work let alone each other. Proof is the fact that senior leadership are dropping like flies and we don't even have a CEO.
