Pros

My qualifications closely matched the job description, so the interview was easy. Though people who hired me moved to different jobs in the next 6 months, the job has proven very interesting and exectly matched the description

Cons

There is no WaMu any more. JP Morgan Chase did not want to use the WaMu talent, so we all were let go.

Advice to Management

there was no leadership, otherwise the WaMu would not end up being destroyed. Hopefully it will be a good example for other companies.

    Pros

    fair pay and benefits, I felt that there was opportunity to move around the organization up or sidways, good work/life balance, met more good people than bad

    Cons

    need i say portfolio management?; there was a committee for everything, which allowed process to get in the way of needed changes/upgrades/etc.

    Advice to Management

    Management at least made us believe, for the most part, that we mattered, but the the funny thing is that the retail business seemed to be well run and controlled, but that the same discipline didn't seem to exist in the other half of the business for whatever reason.


  2. heavy analytics

    Some managers don't encourage learning and have a sink or swim attitude.
    Small cubicles. no cafeteria, managers didn't trust you.

    Advice to Management

    don't do subprime lending. the credit industry will collapse. watch out for the new legistlatrion regarding change in terms. make it so
