I worked at Washington Mutual

Pros

Ample room for advancement across many different career directions. (Was) Secure and steady employer. Strong Benefits package offered. Ample training provided.

Cons

Weak pool of branch level management. Didn't necessarily foster 'the right way to do it', but promoted those with good sales numbers by questionable tactics. Banking gives you a little bit of the 'Office Space' type feeling.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too much tinkering with commission pay. Pay consistently went down while production was similar or even increased. This seems disengenious and definitely fosters poor sales habits from producers.
