I worked at Fannie Mae full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good pay and benefits, professional atmosphere, good facilities.

Cons

Lack of direction, increasingly political, multiple HQ locations (hard to meet people productively)

Advice to Management

Treat employees better (the problems aren't their fault), don't set direction without knowing where you want to go.

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

    Pros

    Great Benefits for first time home buyers, commuters, life -work balance if you have an enlightened work group. Much better benefits and culture when compare to its rival Freddie Mac.

    Cons

    Fannie Mae is currently in receivership so its currently managed by the federal government or FHFA. The company is profitable and going through a revamp no one knows what to expect once the dust settles in a few years.

    Advice to Management

    Some Directors and VPs at the company stifle growth and originality. They also lack vision and should consider the value of a department or team Mission statement to guide growth and process improvements.

    Pros

    Great people, dedicated to helping homeowners. They were all about putting together programs that would provide assistance to those who needed it.

    Cons

    It seems like lots of reorganization is going on all the time. The uncertainty is not a good thing. A level of stability is needed.

    Advice to Management

    Try to minimize the reorg impacts to your team.
