Good culture, very nice people.

Overly process-driven; too many meetings; too many Powerpoint decks. Senior managers utterly lacking in courage to make unpopular decisions or take chances.

    Pros

    The WaMu I knew had a long, proud history of serving its communities, customers and clients. While it was in business I was proud to work there.

    Cons

    WaMu's senior management utterly destroyed the bank. Between 2007 and 2008 the company stock slid from $40 down to 10 cents as it imploded, its assets ultimately sold to JPM at firesale prices by the federal government.

    Advice to Management

    Too little much too late. They presided over one of the greatest examples of the destruction of shareholder equity in the history of capitalism. On the flip side after this performance it should not be hard for any of them to actually improve as managers.
