    Current Employee - Product Designer III in Washington, DC

    I have been working at Fannie Mae full-time

    Pros

    Good Benefits. Nice office. A large team of top-notch designers.

    Cons

    Business execs are currently in the process of understanding the value of design. It's getting better but some designers may not have the patience to wait until it gets better,

    I have been working at Fannie Mae full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits package including vacation, sick leave and 401 match. Leadership working to change some of the old ways has company improving slowly but surely.

    Cons

    Micromanagement and old-guard still getting in the way of innovation and real progress. “Flexible work” options aren’t really flexible - maybe a day here or there but leadership frowns upon working from home or remotely.

    Advice to Management

    Innovation is not possible with so much red tape and bureaucracy. Oh and it’s 2020 - it is possible to work remotely or from home on a regular basis without the company or operations falling apart - trust your people.
