I have been working at Freddie Mac full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The employees are great, very smart, collaborative, and pleasant to work with. Freddie Mac is also very generous in terms of pay and benefits and has a number of opportunities for professional development.

Cons

Due to the "wind down" directive from the government, there are reductions being made across the company. There is not much room for advancement, and lots of bureaucracy.

Advice to Management

Keep focused on retaining your top employees. The moral is on a steady decline which can lead to excessive turnover.

    I worked at Freddie Mac full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Teleworking available for most positions, work independently (not micro managed), management offers support and welcomes feedback

    Cons

    Pay structure due to conservatorship is harsh by industry standards. Could mean a pay decrease but the benefits may outweigh the cut (telework options / work life balance)

    Advice to Management

    In order to retain strong professionals and reduce turnover, more recognition and non monetary perks.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits but work-life balance depends on the area you work in. If you are a technology and/or financial professional you will find a challenging and stimulating work environment. A lot of capable and smart people.

    Cons

    Recently a lot of staff with key business knowledge have left the company (or been handed packages). Too many and frequent reorgs. Oh yeah, and a politically threatened future.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out the organizational structure and stick to it for some time; stop the constant reorgs.
