    Pros

    Fannie Mae is a great place to work. Very calming and encouraging atmosphere. Management encourage their staff to learn and grow.

    Cons

    The only con is the location. I live in DC and the commute to Herndon, VA was not a easy commute

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage staff to grow and seek opportunities to cross train with other Fannie Mae employees

    I worked at Fannie Mae full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, pay. Beautiful campus, but company is moving to DC.

    Cons

    Terrible environment; unsupportive, not collaborative, isolating

    Advice to Management

    Ensure managers work with new employees, train them, alert them to resources available to them. Enforce on boarding activities, such as start partners, mentors, and other resources that probably aren't even mentioned to new employees. Make people feel like they matter.

    I worked at Fannie Mae (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Learning environment can be very positive and management support it. Some management members are very engaged and they are great at people strategies.

    Cons

    culture is very difficult, ongoing reorgs are disruptive and keep changing with almost no alignment to previous business strategies that were not reasonably proven.

    Advice to Management

    keep focus on people- they are your biggest assets..

    I worked at Fannie Mae full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company- each department is different
    Benefits
    Decent pay
    Nice campus with parking (but will be gone soon with the move to downtown DC)

    Cons

    Supervisors and manager do absolutely nothing.
    The director is a complete (fill in the blank).
    Difficult to work in a team environment. Everyone gossips like it's HS.
    Promotions and pay increases are given to unqualified candidates.
    Retention rate is low so the team is never stable
    Morale is low
    Metrics driven so be prepared to be micromanaged to where you can't even leave your desk to use the bathroom.
    Pointless daily morning huddle meetings at 8:30AM to make sure you are on time (another measure of micromanaging)
    VERY political. They hire only their referrals. Join the team and you'll see what I mean.
    5% Merit increases are only given to favorites.
    Work from home is only Tuesday and Thursday. And there is no flexibility to change so it can help your life outside of work.
    CALL CENTER ENVIRONMENT
    Only way to receive promotion is when someone takes another position to another department.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people who have great ideas or you'll keep losing talent. Supervisors and managers are ok with just skating by not trying to develop and better the department.
    Stop hiring useless talent.
