Worst place to work
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Bethesda, MDMay 31, 2018
The office is very crowded and there was no privacy!! There were these long desks/tables with staff sitting on both sides which sometimes made it uncomfortable as you had absolutely no privacy. Management tend to be top heavy. The culture is suppose to be collaborative, however, it is far from that. team work was a joke and people did not understand what teamwork truly means. A lot of processes were outdated. There seem to be some very good talented folk working there but the stress of that place can send someone to their death bed! Management makes time for who they want to make time for and the company truly needs a cultural overhaul. Nothing compared to two companies that birthed this joint venture, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae.
Pros
Great mission
Cons

Slow paced and clunky
Manager (Former Employee) –  Bethesda, MDFebruary 3, 2018
It's not true that this place is fast paced. It moves ridiculously slow but churns a lot of work due to poor processes and a lack of vision. This is seen by management as "fast paced." They have been trying to build a limited function platform for the last 5 years... Unsuccessfully.

Middle management is toxic and self serving. Upper management is scared of their GSE partners and have lost all will to do right. The attitude is encouraged among the rank and file.

The basic equipment like phones and internet access goes down weekly. The platform is web based...

HR is very immature and is more an arm of the CEO agenda. No one there would ever go to HR with issues or in need of help.
Pros
Pay is ok
Cons
The culture. The lack of diversity.

Quick pace
Senior Recruiter (Former Employee) –  Bethesda, MDAugust 23, 2017
Common Securitization Solutions was created in 2013 under a mandate from Congress. They are building a platform to package and trade mortgage back securities. They hire top talent in IT. As their first recruiter, I was able to work with upper management in putting together a strategy to bring in top IT professionals.
