I worked at Fannie Mae full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Interesting work and great benefits. Good opportunities to develop skills and get training,

Cons

Senior management does not make tough decisions and instead puts off making difficult decisions out of fear of making mistakes, which effectively paralyzes the company from making important changes. Not a lot of rhyme or reason for why some folks get promoted versus others who do not (to get promoted more important who you know and who can elevate you, rather than the caliber of your work).

Advice to Management

Fewer layoffs and re-train existing personnel rather than keep bringing in new staff. Make the bold decisions to transform the company and worry less about protecting fiefdoms.

    I worked at Fannie Mae full-time

    Pros

    Fannie Mae provides an excellent salary and benefits package. Flexible schedules, and liberal telecommuting options. Generous home purchase, and education assistance package.

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancement are largely related to the team that you are on, and who you know. Frequent layoffs have adversely affected morale.

    Advice to Management

    Get back in touch with the organization's mission statement. Remind staff to focus on how their job duties contribute to the overall success of the company..
