A good place to work; it promotes work/life balance and great benefits.
Senior Recoveries Management Professional (Former Employee) –  Carrollton, TXJuly 11, 2016
Freddie Mac has a great work/life balance. They promote improvement by providing college reimbursement and health by providing health club reimbursement. The company's culture is one that attempts to create a close family like environment for employees by providing monthly events. They attempt to keep the employees informed by having monthly Townhall meetings and has an open door policy.
Pros
college and health club reimbursement
Cons
employment security determined by economy and election year

Business Rules Management is Horrible
Business Rules Professional (Former Employee) –  Carrollton, TXJuly 5, 2016
Management in the Business Rules area of Strategic Delivery demonstrates cronyism on a daily basis. If you are not one of their 'favorites', they will go out of their way to withhold support and advancement opportunities. Leadership is poor, at best. The leadership team understands the technical side of the business but has little to no experience managing people.

During the potential transition from Public to Private, Freddie Mac was a tough work environment. Not everyone will do well there, as it can be both challenging and dull at the same time
