I worked at Fannie Mae full-time (more than 8 years)Pros
Fannie Mae manages to hire smart people and keep them around. I felt it was a great work environment and management respected my free time. When I left work, I was gone. I wasn't expected to log in at night or work ungodly hours. I worked hard while at work, but was able to let it go after I walked out the door.Cons
Almost impossible to get rid of people who aren't pulling their weight or causing problems.RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Fannie Mae.Interview Details
I applied through my college's website and was offered an interview. Mostly behavioral (name one time you worked with a team to do a group project) and went over my resume. I had a lot of technical stuff on there(working with microcontrollers) so interview asked about that. I explained in depth what one of my projects were and seemed really interested. I think the more technical you are, the better it is because the interviewer was surprised with my technical background and that was the highlight of the interview. Just be yourself and be confident. I got a call about 2 weeks later with the offer.Interview Questions
Reasons for Declining
- No difficult questions. Just behavioral about teamwork. There was no business case or anything of that sort (probably because it was just an internship) Answer Question
