Allow Independant work, with great benefits, and work from home schedule
REO Specialist/ Vendor Manager (Current Employee), Irvine, CaJune 30, 2015
Pros: Work from home
Cons: being a remote worker
A typical day at work is a independently work environment with main focus on vendor performance and numbers. Great work life balance with benefits to work remotely. I have learned how to read reports with accurately forecasting month productivity and meeting goals. I have learned how to manage numerous people holding equal or lateral positons as myself. Worked with great co-workers whom reach out actively to ensure that we made goals as a team as well as individually. The most challenging part of the job is ensuring that I was holding vendors accountable fairly, tactfully while being firm on the importance of meeting goals and company expectations. The best part of working with the company was the work-life balance and the freeing feeling of being trusted to work independently.

PROJECT MANAGER (Former Employee), Reston, VAJune 25, 2015
Pros: salary, benefits, training available
Cons: Individual management teams do what they want without oversight or consequences
In my two years at Fannie Mae, I met a number of hard working, talented people. Working with these people, combined with the training available, can make for a productive work environment.

Unfortunately, I also met a few aggressively mean spirited managers willing to actively work to "run off" personnel (denial of training, petty comments in front of peers, using 'reply all' for criticisms, etc.) that were not favored or hired directly by them. My team had a high turnover rate (5 out of 20 in 4Q14-1Q15 alone) all driven by a single, favored manager (who was seemingly feared by those below and above) and the HR team unaware of the trend / common elements of these departures.

As to the company as a whole, the base pay, benefits and training available are all terrific. In fact, in my view, many people decide to deal with poor managers in order to keep these.

SF Ops Credit Enhancement- Intern (Current Employee), Washington, DCJune 14, 2015
The team members make it feel as though you are actually a full time employee for the company and not just a student on internship. You'll learn more about SQL and excel. The managers and director are amazing.

Tough Working Environment
Manager (Former Employee), Washington DCJune 4, 2015
Pros: Decent benefits and pay
Cons: Very stressful work environment
The climate of constant change at this company makes it very difficult to get a handle on the direction that the company is moving. Expect to work very long hours and weekends too in some cases. Teams and processes are in constant flux since the left hand does not always know or care what the right hand is doing. Turnover is some areas is pretty high. Company benefits and salary are decent. At year end be prepared for a low rating even though you worked your tail off as it is required that 10% of the company must receive a "does not meet expectations" rating.

HR runs the place, you need to play a lot of politics to advance
Analyst (Former Employee), Reston, VAMay 28, 2015
If you do good work and work hard, that's about 50% of your advancement potential. The other half is how well you play the political game, how well you come off as a "corporate citizen" by showing up to as many meetings as you can, signing up for as many volunteer activities as you can, and schmoozing with as many managers as you can. HR dictates pay and titles, not management, and they are stuck in the past with their outdated policies. They use a stack ranking system, which ends up being a horse trading show among managers during "calibrations", a system that even Microsoft abandoned once they realized it didn't work.
