    I worked at Freddie Mac full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible, incentives, work is challenging.

    Cons

    Hard to move or explore other opportunities. Applying to other positions is supposed to be confidential but that’s not the case at all.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your team to explore other opportunities. It will help with retention and the knowledge won’t go out the door.

    I worked at Freddie Mac full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Scrum /agile methodologies on a large scale (multiple smaller teams) - Nine percent 401k Match after 1 year - Friendly and talented employees - Open office space with mostly nine to five work schedule - Culturally diverse and open to Visa sponsorship - On site gym with sauna; Massive cafeteria with lots of lunch options and subsidized prices; Free coffee & Tea

    Cons

    - Non-senior roles get 10 days of vacation, many senior roles get 15 and increase after many years - Like any massive company, very bureaucratic - Project technology can be anywhere from slightly behind to ancient - Very slow career path for someone starting out, but a great stepping stone and solid experience

    Advice to Management

    Heading in an upward direction in the last few years. Need to increase benefits to compare to the majority of other government jobs in the DC area. Treatment of contractors / full-time employees need to be the same otherwise contractors will not want to work with the full timers (increase cohesiveness between employees). Contractors and employees tend to work in two separate groups - seems to be inefficient and... creates a weird workplace dynamic
