Pros

Good compensation and benefits, Professionalism of co-workers was outstanding, Lots of opportunity for visibility and opportunities to work with executives, Good Community support

Cons

Being in the finance industry at this time is very difficult. WaMu is being held up as a "how not to do business".

Advice to Management

Despite everything that has happened at WaMu, there were some highly capable, inelligent people who worked there who did everything in their power to make the customer happy. It is a shame that it will be remembered otherwise.

    Pros

    Great work life balance, ability to take time off as needed. Great benefits packages, IE Health, 401k medical, dental vision etc.

    Cons

    Inability to have a definitive career path with the wall of the company. Managers were more concerned about their we;; being than ensuring eployees had a natural career progression

    Advice to Management

    Leadership was out of touch with the inner workings of the company, they were all too concerned about the stock price and not the stability of the company. GREED!


  2. The company tanked for a reason

    Pros

    A lot of vacation days, sick leave, and holidays.

    Cons

    HIghly political work environment, little recognition nor reward for hard work, poor upper management, highly disorganized, and basically ineffective. As the results speak for themselves in 2009.

    Advice to Management

    Should spend more time reviewing viable and effective strategies rather than playing politics. Also, there should be greater control over internal growth, which occurred too quickly and resulted in a highly disorganized structure.
