    I have been working at Fannie Mae full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Management is interested in improving and enhancing the way the organization is structured to allow people more freedom
    Allows employees to try and fail without repercussions

    Cons

    Often it feels like change for the sake of change

    Advice to Management

    Stop comparing us to companies like Spotify and Amazon. Our products are different, our way of working is different, and our culture is very different. Just because those companies are successful does not mean that we need to manage ourselves the same way they do.

    Change should have a purpose. It doesn't feel like mgmt aligns that purpose with our corporate direction.
