    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    WAMU will prepare to license all PFRs. PFR stands for Personal financial Rep. WAMU will help PFRs to get 6 and 63 licensed. For now, They are not looking for PFRs. WAMU has too many of them right now.

    Cons

    Washington Mutual Doesn't promote PFRs or doesn't allow PFR to transfer. Some branch manager will not allow top PFR to transfer, expecially, when they need your production.

    Advice to Management

    WAMU Management is a mess right now. eventually it will get better.

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible hours, and a great work environment make Washington Mutual a nice place to work for. Depending on your branch, the management can work around your outside schedule, whether it is for school or extra curriculars. Health insurance is given to part time employees and before the economic downturn bonus pools were decent.

    Cons

    Depending on location, promotions might be hard to come by. Promotions and raises are dictated by the regional managers. At this location, manager was rarely present and there was a lot of employee turnover. The region was very adamant about reaching goals, but not so much in rewarding branches that exceeded them.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together.
