    I have been working at Fannie Mae full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance and salary. Not required to work every weekend.

    Cons

    Long-term prospects of firm are uncertain with all the potential regulatory changes to dissolve it.
    Company values are in the toilet as HR and Legal turn a blind eye to unethical practices in hiring, firing, promotions and demotions. The firm is not held to corporate nor government personnel standards.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up the 'old boys network' corporate culture and ensure that people are placed in jobs in which they have actual job qualifications and experience. Stop the kickbacks to senior executives for hiring contractors.

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

    Pros

    Fantastic employees who are willing to make incredible sacrifices for the company, hours, weekend, work-lie balance. They are a "do what it take" group.

    Cons

    Technology organization has lost its way. Outsourcing important work to vendors with very junior resources. Change is bad to senior management - technology used to be empowered to provide value to the business. Senior management has erected so many barriers to deployments that it makes months to deploy simple changes to the production environment.
