    I have been working at Fannie Mae full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fannie Mae can offer flexibility, especially in being able to work at home, as if you work at home more than 2 days a week you give up your office space. Some areas of the company could be interesting, and some areas are deadly dull

    Cons

    Fannie Mae is very bureaucratic, possibly more so than the federal government. However, the federal government gives some stability whereas Fannie Mae offers no stability. There is a LOT of politics at Fannie Mae, upper management is constantly changing, and nobody's job is secure from layoffs. There have been frequent rounds of layoffs during my 13 years, even recently when Fannie Mae has had record profits -- and many of these people layed off were employees around for a long time with a lot of knowledge -- and then Fannie Mae will hire new people to replace them and pay them less. Fannie Mae absolutely has no loyalty to employees and does not value them, so if you work here you have to look out for yourself only and get as much as you can from Fannie Mae while you can.

    Advice to Management

    Start showing employees that they are valued, and retrain employees to perform different job functions rather than laying them off and hiring new and cheaper people and training them, and the long term benefits reaped from doing this would dwarf the small term benefits of laying them off.

    I have been working at Fannie Mae full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is great, benefits (so, so, high deductibles), flexible work schedule and able to work from local living home 3 days a week.

    Cons

    It's all about the numbers and not quality, a lot of transition at the moment and unforeseen future as well right now.
    Up until now lower management has only hired based on brown nosing and not a persons qualifications (no matter what they say).

    Advice to Management

    Do to the uncertain future, it's hard to give advice right now, however if lower management gets to stay in position in the new agency Please do not base hiring decision on (brown nosing, friendship, etc) Most of us have worked our asses off and given up so much just be working here!
