    I have been working at Freddie Mac full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nice and smart coworkers. Great benefits, especially retirement.

    Cons

    Flat org and too little turnover at the higher levels makes it tough to progress quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Start a more formal grooming/mentorship program.
