I worked at Freddie Mac full-time for more than a year

Pros

Huge Employer, Fringe Benefits, Collaborative work environment. There are a lot of smart people around, but need to align yourself and your career with their's to reap maximum benefit

Cons

Too many re-orgs happening due to recent economic crisis. As the company tries to find its optimal level of performance, the process of head count reduction and changing job descriptions can be painful at times

    I worked at Freddie Mac full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, diverse workplace, flexible schedule, and free training and development opportunities for all employees..

    Cons

    Very stressful environment with low employee morale due to negative media attention.. The leadership team constantly changes the employee focus and company goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be consistent with your company focus and give your employees hope that the company has a future..

    I have been working at Freddie Mac full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits, Amenities and Flex work hours.

    Cons

    Too much management changes, too much work with less pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Stand and fight in what you believe in.
    2. Focus on getting the job done than being more concerned about office politics.
