    I worked at Fannie Mae full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Knowledgeable coworkers, a wide array of skill sets to interact with or pursue, and . Good hours and ok compensation (401k match!)

    Keep up the good work with driving change. Commit to pushing people to deliver - test and learn, but deliver!
