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

Pros

I truly enjoyed my time at WaMu. I loved my team and the people I worked with, learned a lot, was challenged by the work I did and liked the company's culture.

Cons

Getting shut down by the FDIC and being devoured by JPMorgan was kind of a downer.

Advice to Management

Ignoring risk and lending out to anybody regardless of whether they can repay the loan isn't really a good business model.
