I worked at Fannie Mae as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

If you are looking for a stable office enviornment, Fannie Mae is a good place to be. Established during the great depression to give potential homebuyers credit when the banks were not willing to lend money, this company is not going anywhere.

Cons

Do you really want to tell your friends and family that you work for Fannie Mae? Also, not a good place for contractors looking to get hired on.

Advice to Management

Figure out how to better manage contractors.

    * Rapid flight of talent should be a big concern for a franchise
    * Develop the people when it is difficult to do much with the future being laid out / debated
