I worked at Freddie Mac full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The pay is pretty good compared to other non financial company.

Cons

The work is meaningless. There are a lot of control departments such as internal audit to check oversight department and oversight department checks model department and external auditor such as PWC to check every department in the company. What a joke!

Advice to Management

This place is hopeless. Most of the executive officers are out for money not trying to do the right thing anyway.

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

    Pros

    The best reasons to work here are the collaborative culture and the amazing people. As others have stated, the employees at Freddie Mac are fabulous. They are intelligent, motivated, hard working and driven.

    Cons

    Executive management changes frequently and current leadership is very hierarchical and old school. Freddie Mac's future is uncertain and will be dictated by Congress. Frequent negative media attention and there is a general public misunderstanding of Freddie Mac's purpose, mission, and role in the housing market.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to encourage the already existing collaborative/teamwork environment while addressing inefficiencies that may exist. Collaboration/teamwork and corporate competitiveness in the market are not mutually exclusive goals.
