    I have been working at Freddie Mac full-time (More than 3 years)


    A very diverse culture. Changes happening all the time. Great benefits. Allows flexible work arrangements. Nice work life balance. Always looking to modernize.


    Work can sometimes be stressful. You usually won't see or hear much from senior management. A lot of process improvements can take place.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Freddie Mac (McLean, VA) in March 2017.


    Pre-screening by phone interview. A series of 45 minute interviews followed by a short presentation on campus visit. Interviewers were super-nice. You should know OLS, IV, Logistic Regression by heart. In addition, some questions involved personality and hypothetical real-life situations.
