Retail store and low and mid management corporate employees were very nice, and were eager to do good work

Desparate need for new and innovative ideas from senior management and significant passive/aggressive behavior demonstrated by management trying to move up the chain of command.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Great support to get the job done. Direct managers were awesome always felt like they were looking out for me and my team. Helped me grow personally.

    Cons

    Slow moving train, the bank was notorious for dragging it's feet on the latest technologies. Probably a just all the regulatory rules we had to go through to migrate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Well since there is no managment left and JP Morgan chase has taken over I guess there isn't much left to give advice about.

    Former Employee - Senior Business Systems Analyst in Los Angeles, CA

    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 ManagementAdvice

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