    Former Employee - Senior Technology Manager in Seattle, WA

    I worked at Washington Mutual full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lots of room to learn, plenty of opportunity. Lots of collaboration and the chance to work on completely new projects. I really enjoyed my time there, and learned a TON. Plenty of opportunity to work with senior management closely, if you were working on strategically aligned projects.

    Cons

    Absolutely crazy as everything crashed... no work/life balance, disregard for long term business reality in pursuit of short term immediate financial gain.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
