    Benefits, pay scale, resources, training, strong corporate culture, positive values, well enforced code of conduct, casual atmosphere, highly educated human capital

    I have been working at Fannie Mae full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, 401k match rocks, insurance is pretty good and you have multiple providers to chose from, college reimbursement, they even pay you to buy a house. Great work life balance (most of the year). Decent pay!

    Cons

    The company is extremely slow paced, things that can be done in a week takes as long as 2-3 months. Nothing cutting edge or break through ever happens in the company. Lots of hierarchy and overheads, many people have old fashioned mindset of computer science and management and aren't familiar with concepts of agility or API's for faster development.

    Advice to Management

    Support new ideas and give the employees a bit of freedom on how they get things done.
