Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take your time in merging the two companies - really look and see where the talent is and who you should retain.

    Former Employee - PFR  in  Huntington Beach, CA
    Former Employee - PFR in Huntington Beach, CA

    I worked at Washington Mutual

    Pros

    WAMU will prepare to license all PFRs. PFR stands for Personal financial Rep. WAMU will help PFRs to get 6 and 63 licensed. For now, They are not looking for PFRs. WAMU has too many of them right now.

    Cons

    Washington Mutual Doesn't promote PFRs or doesn't allow PFR to transfer. Some branch manager will not allow top PFR to transfer, expecially, when they need your production.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    WAMU Management is a mess right now. eventually it will get better.

    I have been working at Washington Mutual

    Pros

    If you want to show up at 10 and leave at 3, this is a great place for you.

    Cons

    Everyone's lack of knowledge on anything but their own "specialization" Try to find someone that can actually solve your issue from start to finish is impossible. Everything is a fire drill, it's like the blind leading the blind. The person leading teh project always seems to be the one with the least experience. All teh smart people have virtually left, the rest are waiting to see what their package will consist of now that JPM is cleaning house.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with respect. A certain Sr VP i can think of needs to show people respect and not be so stuck up. Dont treat people like there stupid, and they'll pull more weight than you ask them to do. Dont lie to employees, JPM isnt treating this as a 'merger' were all hosed...
