    I worked at Freddie Mac full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The people are great, caring, committed, intelligent, and dedicated to the company and to its' success.

    Cons

    Culture is changing...too many executive management changes. Six different CEOs in the past 8 years, all with different objectives and direction for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the people that have taken care of and have helped to build the company. Show more respect and consideration for your employees, others will see this and it will have a wide-spread positive effect.

These siblings know there's no place like home.
