        Approves of CEO

        I worked at Freddie Mac full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Flexible, incentives, work is challenging.

        Cons

        Hard to move or explore other opportunities. Applying to other positions is supposed to be confidential but that’s not the case at all.

        Advice to Management

        Allow your team to explore other opportunities. It will help with retention and the knowledge won’t go out the door.
