Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

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 Management

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.

    No opinion of CEO

    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 Management

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


  2. Good place to work

    Pros

    Like most companies, there are good managers and bad managers and WaMu was no different. I was fortunate to work for good managers -- people who cared about doing a good job and doing the right things. I had several great opportunities while I was there for promotion and recognition.

    Cons

    Response time from senior management was slow and indirect. When we could have and should have been dealing with customer and employee fears and concerns, you could hear crickets from the upper floors. It was a shame...

    Advice to Management

    Surround yourself with people who know how to deal with a crisis and can do it quickly - while at the same time not upsetting the regulators.
