I worked at Washington Mutual

Pros

To employees, the company was 100% transparent (perhaps, if they treated shareholders the same, the bank might still be in business.)

Cons

As a whole staff lacked passion. Also, to avoid layoffs, employees were transferred to new teams whether they posses core competencies or not. This in turn, hurt the overall work produced. Very difficult for promotion outside of Seattle.
