    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.

    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.
