    I worked at Fannie Mae full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some parts of the company provide very real and helpful services to US families.

    Cons

    Politics are crazy. Hard to get anything done. Significant changes in management and leadership create churn and constant re-engineering.

    Advice to Management

    Respect and listen to your employees---REALLY.

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

    Pros

    * You get to learn about the mortgage industry.
    * Lots of talented, hard-working people
    * You get experience which helps build your resume

    Cons

    * Company has gone downhill the past few years, and there is a lot of uncertainty on where it is headed
    * Many employees stretched thin and stressed
    * Expect to be on call 24/7 and work overtime on a regular basis, and with no additional compensation or comp time
    * Incredible amount of work to be done by too few employees who have limited access to resources
    * Very little time to learn the applications and train
    * Too many processes with too much dependence on a few key people
    * Too much complexity in the applications
    * Management seems to want to push their work onto the employees
    * Toxic work environment with lots of bickering and tons of office politics
    * Management wants to create a barrier between contractors and regular employees
    * Turnover is high with many people leaving in less than 1 year (no surprise given the above points)

    Advice to Management

    * Staff projects with sufficient number of employees
    * Make sure people are properly trained and have enough time to learn
    * Never mind who is a regular employee and who is a contractor - they all work for the same company so they should all work together
    * Simplify things
