  1. Was great while it lasted

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Decent pay for a high school student; very social; opportunity to take initiative and advance

    Cons

    Always pushing the up-sell. And up-selling subprime loans lead to terrible consequences in the end.

    Advice to Management

    Well, you don't really exist anymore. So next time when you have a business that survived the great depression, try to put people first (not profits) and survive the great resession.

    I worked at Washington Mutual full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people, true team environment, challenging work, fair compensation, perfect work/life balance. Lots of opportunity with the ability and encouragement to "train up".

    Cons

    I, personally, saw no down side. Without a doubt the best place I have ever worked. Unfortunately, they were victim of the economic collapse between 2007 and 2010, otherwise I'd still be there!

    Advice to Management

    Great Management. Knowledgeable, open and engaged.
