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

    Pros

    Employees were often long-serving, meaning there was a wealth of experience and corporate knowledge which was very helpful when dealing with new issues or problems. Despite the troubles the company faces in the wake of the recent economic and housing finance crisis, employees remained upbeat and worked hard to find solutions. Company policy was admirably flexible on matters such as alternative work arrangements (teleworking, etc,).

    Cons

    Promotion prospects were very limited, at least in my division. There was a lack of transparency concerning the departure of senior executives, which left people concerned about hidden problems affecting the company. The uncertainty as to the future of the company, following the 2008 conservatorship, was troubling to many employees because it put many people in doubt as to their career prospects.
