Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Freddie Mac full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

People are very friendly and given the quasi-govt status, much laid back atmosphere.

Cons

Some of the people weren't motivated and occasionally you see people who are very incompetent but still manage to move up the ranks through "friendship and relationship".

Advice to Management

Please stop "talking" about changes and motivation but rather make the place really driven by skills and performance.

    I have been working at Freddie Mac full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work Life Balance, Benefits and On-line Training Opportunities.

    Cons

    Current seasoned employees are not receptive to change, new employees into the group and are very set in there ways. There is no formal on-boarding within group therefore no consistency. You have to play the political games in order to be successful.

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

    Pros

    Employee paid benefits, health, cafeteria, cleaners, post office, gym, flexible hours. Company location makes it ideal to commute to within NOVA.

    Cons

    Future of the company is uncertain, in certain divisions management are able to get away with violating EEO and company policies with the support of senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of those that put the company at risk and continue to waste company money.
