Thread regarding Fannie Mae layoffs

I wouldn't be too quick to leave

I know a lot of people are not happy with their jobs right now but leaving at the first opportunity might be a mistake. A friend quit a few months ago just to get away and now he's trying to return any way he can. His new workplace turned out to be a completely different deal than he anticipated - and not in a good way. I'm not saying don't leave, just be careful that you're not going from a bad situation to a worse.

I would have believed it if you said he was looking for another job, but “he’s trying to return anyway he can” to Fannie, that’s absurd to say the least. I can’t imagine anyone so desperate that they would want to return so badly to Fannie. Not even contractors are that desperate.

leave asap. FNMA is a sinking ship. They're not getting released anytime soon and comp will continue to be squeezed.

Many folks are smart and plan wisely about their exits. Skills will be obsolete if you end up staying longer at Fannie. If they offer VEP, I think many will take it and go. OSS leaders/mngrs, not worth a dime. It's waste of everyones time speaking about them on this forum.

Who talks about first opportunity. That is unwise. Folks deliberately plan their exit wisely so they can pick and choose. Too many talented analysts who are welcome at large corporations where they get appreciated and can professionally develop. Those staying for years at FMNA will have an obsolete skill set and will be unable to compete in the work force. Look at OSS mngrs, they will not get that comp elsewhere with as little as they know and as incapable of coming up with good ideas.
