Good and interesting place to work.
I choose not to review the company. I enjoyed my time there and had an overall good working experience. There really is nothing more that I need to add to this review.

Great people
I really enjoyed working with my team at Freddie Mac as it was more of a team environment. However, with most large organizations, communication was a challenge and can be improved company wide.

Freddie consistently places second in the race between Freddie and Fannie
Freddie consistently places second in the race between Freddie and Fannie which reflects in the culture and atmosphere. Career and professional development are not prioritized which contributes to the high turn over rate.

Job Culture
Culture of fear; no job security, no upward mobility, no support from management.
The turnover rate was CRAZY high; the entire culture was based on fear. I have never seen anything like it. The departments/teams are deeply compartmentalized because and everyone is afraid of sharing ANY information with anyone else. Everyone is secretive and unhelpful because if they actually trained you, and showed you how easy it is to do their job, then they would be easily replaced. People would settle into small, uninteresting niche skills and then hold on to them for dear life, with no possibility of putting them to any greater use, training another employee, or furthering career progression.

However, it paid really, really well.


Make your money here, then get out as soon as you can. Leave for a better position that will nurture your career. At least it's a good name for the resume.

The company is in the middle of a transformation
Things will be rocky for a while but hopefully will be better soon. We have done some amazing things over the years when we pull together and harness our talent in the right way.

Experience depends on manager of your group
Experience depends on manager of your group. You could have a fantastic experience, or you could dread driving in to work. You can move around in the company.

It depends on the team you are on but there a lot of smart and dedicated professionals to learn from. Senior Management has a clear vision for the company and strives to move the company in the right direction

I like the environment, it is open, and I like the people. Don't like the ability to move up and get paid, but that might just be the nature of reality.

Great place to work
Freddie Mac is one of the Top companies that any one would like to work with. They have great Benefits like Medical, Dental and Vision Health care plus 401k thrift match. The Management is excellent they are very open in regard to take suggestion of how can improve the work place really I guest I hardly see any hard environment at least not in my department but perhaps in another they might have one at least.
