"I've worked at Freddie Mac for 12 years, starting as a senior analyst with promotions up to director. It's a great place to have a career. Benefits are great and pay is good. Employees tend to be smart and collegial, but the atmosphere can be bureaucratic at times."
"Freddie is in a state of flux. They don't value company knowledge or company experience. They are quick to lay off with out the consideration of how remaining employees will be affected. Nor are they honest with their employees when they are on the list to be laid off. I many cases they had to hire former employees back as contractors to continue doing business. The current CEO was hired to prepare the company to be sold publicly."
"Worked at FM as Contractor, all peers were friendly and helpful."
"It is strong company, and great environment to work for."
"I've worked here for 7 years and it is a great company to work for, however with merger talks it may be going away next year."
"I have been here for the past 8 years and it is a nice and stable place to work. But since my job role changed from Sr. Desktop Specialist to Security Analyst about a year ago, I have felt that I am really a Sr. Administrative Assistant, My skills are not utilized at all."
"I've worked with Freddie Mac as a helpdesk analyst for 6 months now, I've noticed the employees do minimal work compared to the Contingent workers, and that some of the employees that work at Freddie Mac get hired by reference and not through any interview that requires technical knowledge or expertise. There is very little communication within the various tech departments that end up causing confusion when rollouts occur."
"I have worked at this current position for 4 months now and found it to be an exciting place to work with great team mates."
"I've been working as a contractor for Freddie Mac and I like the job environment, however, it takes a long time to get things done (bureaucracy). Good company to work for overall."
"Good company to work for, however, there's a bit too much politics to get the job done, but good company overall."
"Freddie Mac is overall a very good company too work for. No major complains as far as work environment and pay for the work is concerned. The only thing I found a little problem was growing in the company. The company seems to be very limited with its career growth. The only way to get promoted happens to be to apply for another job in the company with a better profile. Even if you are doing a spectacular job, promotion comes very rarely."
"I am with this company from past 2 years. Very good experience."
"I enjoyed working at Freddie Mac and would go back if a position became open. Freddie Mac is a great place to work."
