    Ich habe für mehr als 5 Jahre bei Freddie Mac gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Good pay & benefits. Some really great people who are not utilized to their fullest extent

    Kontras

    - very little transparency from senior management - extremely passive-aggressive environment - they wait until after the meeting where they agreed to disagree, but won't tell you directly across all 4 divisions. - weak leadership in risk management - too many senior management with individual goals that interfere with overall objectives.

    Rat an das Management

    Practice what you preach and put political aspirations aside and do what is right for the company and the economy.

    Ich arbeite seit weniger als einem Jahr bei Freddie Mac (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    1. convenient location 2. nice benefits 3. past few years IT and business have seen dramatic transformations and introductions of very compelling products over cutting edge infrastructure

    Kontras

    Recent leadership changes has put the top tier team in a state of quandary and the company is about to become the heaven for pricey consultants churning out mindless decks all over again while the team will be running like headless chickens.

    Rat an das Management

    prioritize and communicate clearly. Don't waste time seeking advice from external consultants what to do when the journey is known and we are already on course.

    Pros

    Large firm with many opportunities, everything and anything mortgage related. If you are in the early stages of your career, you can migrate to many openings in the company.

    Kontras

    Significantly changing environment and strict oversight by FHFA. The higher up in your career, the less opportunities there are to advance, as many long timers hold their roles.

    Rat an das Management

    Continue staying creative to advance the firm into the future and prepare for multiple end point potential options that FHFA might direct.

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als 10 Jahren bei Freddie Mac (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    The company still provides matching contributions to the 401(k) plan -- up to 6% of comp, subject to IRS limits. They provide a temporary contribution to offset the termination of the pension plan (but it's not nearly high enough to make up for the loss of future years of service under the pension plan). Senior management's comp is governed by law and the FHFA -- they are not "fatcat executives" -- at least not... when compared to executives at financial institutions that are not in conservatorship.

    Kontras

    In the past few years, Freddie Mac has cut employees and benefits. They terminated the pension plan. They reduced the severance plan. Yes, they got rid of free soda. Compensation is stagnant (raises of 1% - 2% per year). They eliminated matching contributions for employee's charitable contributions. They have increased the employee's share of the cost of health insurance premiums. Notwithstanding their... promotion of flexible work arrangements, many managers frown upon the practice. They have revised the compensation system to favor "above plan" employees to the detrimiment of "on plan" and "below plan" employees and, at the same time, they have instituted an employee performance system that forces managers to rate 10% of employees as "below plan." Consequently, some "on plan" employees will be rated "below plan" and will received reduced compensation without any justification for such a rating or reduction. Given this recent experience, I would expect comp and benefits to be further reduced in the future.

    Despite wanting to be a "great" company, senior executives manage towards mediocrity when it comes to compensation and benefits. If the company wants to be like Google, it needs to provide comp and benefits like Google, not the "midpoint of the comparator group of similar financial services companies" (HR double speak) that they always say they look at when determining comp and benefits.

    Pros

    Challenging time in housing Opportunities to shape the future of housing finance Brilliant people Most diverse work force I have ever seen Great benefits Competitive in salary 40 percent of time can be spent telecommuting in many jobs

    Kontras

    The future of housing finance is up for debate. The great unknown is whether Freddie Mac will be around to experience it.

    Rat an das Management

    Keep communicating to employees about the nature of change.

    Pros

    I'm fairly compensated for the work that I do, and the benefits package is in some ways better than average. The people that I work with are nice people.

    Kontras

    Senior management keeps saying that it wants the company to become more efficient and more effective, yet continues to ignore the management practices that would do just that. The company has a strong culture of "group think" masquerading as "consensus". Every attempt at promoting change is met with a demand by management that dozens of stakeholders are included in the decision-making, rather than permitting... subject matter experts to structure solutions and make decisions, virtually guaranteeing a disappointing result. One might conclude that to senior management, the appearance of progress is more important than actual progress.

    Stop insisting on a "kumbaya" every time a decision needs to be taken or a process change is contemplated. Allow people who are recognized experts in that field or discipline to structure solutions, and then MANDATE usage.
