    I worked at Washington Federal full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This is a company where integrity is valued and it is all about doing the right thing by your clients and also your fellow employees. I was a proud member of the company for 27 years.

    Cons

    I would not have been with the company for that length of time if I had any serious issues. No company is perfect, but this one is about as good as it gets.

    Advice to Management

    Don't overlook the contribution of long time employees. Their commitment and dedication to the company are just as important as new employees brought in with much fanfare.
