I have been working at Washington Mutual

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 ManagementAdvice

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!

    I have been working at Washington Mutual

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at Washington Mutual

    Pros

    Great benefits package for part-time and full-time employees. Compensation is more than fair compared to similar companies. Expectations are very clear and regular feedback is given on performance. A job well-done is always acknowledged.

    Cons

    Client traffic is not always well-directed, which leads to frustrated clients and employees. Suggestions on how to improve processes are not always heard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to you employees. Listen to your clients. Adapt to the needs of the people. Enable employees to improve their performance.
