    I worked at Fannie Mae full-time

    Pros

    they pay pretty well and good benefits.

    Cons

    Decisions are rarely made as nobody in upper management wants to accept responsibility, projects go in circles and frequently get cut. Layoffs are frequent, then they need to staff up, then layoff again, so staffing goes in circles too.

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

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits, flexible work arrangements, interesting work, mission supporting housing in America. I had very few truly bad days there.

    Cons

    Poor management, lack of promotion potential, lack of rewards and recognition. Many employees are frustrated with the lack of transparency and passive-aggressive management style.

    Advice to Management

    Management; make sure all managers are trained, and have competency in, career pathing, reward/recognition, communication and staff management

    Promotion: base promotion on clear, objective and transparent criteria, rather than “who you know”

    Reward/recognition: for many employees, praise from a boss and a spot award, bonus, or certificate is much more valuable than peer recognition or points redeemable towards merchandise
