I worked at Fannie Mae full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

There are lots of smart, hard working people there that you can learn a lot from. The compensation and benefits are among the best in DC.

Cons

Morale is terrible. Senior executives tend to build their empires with like-minded people and differing opinions, push-back etc. are not well tolerated. The place is crawling with know-it-alls that take credit for everything good (whether they had responsibility or not), but blame others when their own ideas blowup or fail. Most people who advance more by Will than Skill and Confidence over Competence. Turnover and restructurings are constant. In 8 months I had six managers.

Advice to Management

Welcome differing opinions; stop playing personal politics; reward people for their contributions to the company, not because of their popularity with senior management. Stop wasting taxpayer money.
