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

Pros

Great compensation and benefits, interesting work.

Cons

Petty management, lots of rot in middle management, corporate culture still very old-school.

Advice to Management

Remove the bureaucratic layers of management to make way for more staff and lower level managers; get rid of poor performers and bad people managers.
