    I worked at Fannie Mae full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was at Fannie Mae for about 2 years but worked with the company before I was an actual employee. It is a great place to work. They care about their employees and actually desire to further your career. They offer multiple training opportunities, offer assistance to further your education, and offer feedback to help you in your career journey. In all of my previous jobs I had never seen such a pro-employee environment. Not to say that I wasn't frustrated at times with management - I was. But to me the benefits of working for Fannie outweighed this. I ended up relocating and leaving the company. But had I stayed in the area, I would have considered Fannie Mae to be my forever home. If you have a chance to work there, you will not be disappointed.

    Cons

    Because people tend to not leave the company (because its a great place to work) I did see quite a few people in management in which mediocre performance was tolerated. And because they wont leave on their own, they end up at the company for a long time. Cant get them out, so they are promoted up to make them someone else's problem. There were times I felt that I could have done my manager's job better than they did. But I also felt management was overworked so that could have been the problem. As a lower level employee, we needed certain things that weren't being provided by our manager.

    Advice to Management

    Hold upper management accountable for their mistakes and job performance. When lower employees see mediocrity tolerated they feel unmotivated to work harder and also lose hope that the environment will become better.
