Former Employee - New Accounts in San Diego, CA

I worked at Washington Mutual

Pros

Bonus structure was good and very visable and easy to track. Better commissions than prior employer at B of A.

Cons

Manager was more involved in her own life to notice the entire branch turned over in the 6 months that i was there, including me.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Manager requirements should be a little bit tougher. Regional should be able to identify this prior to having the entire staff request transfers or leave.

    I worked at Washington Mutual

    Pros

    Work life balance, time off when you need it, people are nice to one another

    Cons

    Very passive agressive leadership and environment in general. Efficiency and Effectiveness is not valued (on a scale of 1-5 I give this a 2). Leadership is not grounded in reality and seems to focus on the theoretical rather than the issues at hand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being in the clouds and take the time to figure out what is truly driving the business. You need to quantify risk better.
