    I have been working at Fannie Mae full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Moderately competitive salaries and benefits; mission of company has merit.

    Cons

    Government set on winding down company; job security is nonexistent for many technology workers who may be targeted for outsourcing; many employees stretched thin and stressed out; generally an environment where it is hard to identify a hopeful future.

    Advice to Management

    Unlikely you can make lemonade out of these lemons.
