    I have been working at Freddie Mac full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Mostly the benefits and the internal mobility. Managers generally give strong preference to current employees for open positions, so there is a lot of mobility within the company to learn and experience different parts of the business. There are also a surprising amount of personal growth and learning opportunities to help you gain valuable skills both hard and soft.

    Cons

    Job growth is near impossible without switching positions, the culture is some of the most passive aggressive I've ever experienced or even heard of. The employees are afraid to put themselves out there, it tends to be a "head down" environment, which is unfortunate given the opportunities that are available to those that choose to take advantage of them.

    Advice to Management

    There's unfortunately not much management can do at this point. They've tried a lot to turn our culture around, and honestly without a "refresh" of the individuals that are contributing to it, programs to help turn it around won't go anywhere (many have tried in the past). Maybe once the government lets our management make decisions about its employees again things will change.
