    Great life/work balance and a very friendly environment. Good pay and really good co-workers.

    Contractors who are with the company for 2 year's worth of hours are let go and have to wait for a 6 month cooling off period before they can renew or obtain a new contract with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Make full time positions more readily available to good contractors.

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

    Pros

    I'm impressed by the level of investment Fannie Mae places on employee engagement. They have a lot of internal communications content, employee resource group activities, and events to help us stay connected to the work other teams are doing.

    Cons

    There are a number of people that need to be involved in approvals for things that seem minor because of how easily things can easily be misinterpreted. It's unfortunate but perhaps necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the great work you're doing to include employee feedback in decisions that will impact them, and keeping them informed about the progress Fannie Mae is making.

    Pros

    Very professional atmosphere. Depending on your manager, you are not micro-managed. Fannie Mae employs highly respected individuals from the mortgage industry and you are constantly challenged to grow professionally. There are great benefits and great co-workers!

    Cons

    Can be stressful and bureaucratic. There are many layers of approval in management that you have to go through to make changes. At times this is very frustrating because it takes too long to give a customer an answer.

    Advice to Management

    To those that micro-manage...DON'T! Be sure to communicate often.
