I have been working at Washington Mutual

Pros

Opportunity for advancement was stressed as something that all management valued. Much manager face time was granted and there was an open door policy.

Cons

Although oppotunity for advancement was one of the incentives offered at the time of my hire it did not seem to pan out that way.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More attention needs to be given to employee growth and career developement and the benefit and compensation package needs to be increased.

    I worked at Washington Mutual

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    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!
