    I have been working at Fannie Mae full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits at Fannie Mae. Been here long enough to vouch for that. Support work-life, education, housing. The annual Help the Homeless evens are great as well

    Cons

    Nothing to complain about. Great place to work for. I have no complaints about working here. Management and co-workers are great to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing

    I have been working at Fannie Mae full-time

    Pros

    Fannie Mae has great benefits, training and mentoring.

    Cons

    The company's future is uncertain due to being in conservatorship. Promotion is often based on who you know rather than merit.

    Advice to Management

    People are your asset. Invest in them.

    I worked at Fannie Mae full-time

    Pros

    Great for resume. Great for networking.

    Cons

    Management has no idea what they are doing. They have no direct fixed income experience. Working at Fannie Mae is great but stay away from market risk, otherwise, you'll be doing nothing but troubleshooting tech issues.
