    I have been working at Freddie Mac full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work life balance, benefits and leadership! Senior leadership is very up front and honest with employees! There’s no tolerance for unethical behavior like I’ve seen at other places!

    Cons

    Would love to have more vacation time after 3 years vs 5 but overall the company is very generous with time off.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Freddie Mac in December 2017.

    Interview

    First was talks with a Sourcer, who is a contractor for Freddie Mac. She sent my resume out to various hiring managers. From there I had talks with a Director of a department, we were able to hit it off and had an awesome interview. Sourcer got back to me and said that the interview went well and I was near the top of their list. Sourcer and I went through the talks of salary, what it would take to get me to sign up, etc., then I got a message from the Sourcer saying I had to talk to the Manager I would be reporting to, and that it was a formality. End up talking to the Manager the next day, then was told 2 days later that I was not selected. So there was obviously some mass miscommunication between the Myself, Sourcer and Recruiter.
