Disapproves of CEO

Pros

The Pay and benefits were good....The co-workers were friendly. IT support was good. It was a nice work environment until the the financial crisis hit.

Cons

Poor risk managment at the top. Over the top salaries at the top. The blackberry extends the work day. Should of focused on their core products.

Advice to Management

You don't have a job anymore so I don't see why this would matter that much...Hope you have found a job.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement was stressed as something that all management valued. Much manager face time was granted and there was an open door policy.

    Cons

    Although oppotunity for advancement was one of the incentives offered at the time of my hire it did not seem to pan out that way.

    Advice to Management

    More attention needs to be given to employee growth and career developement and the benefit and compensation package needs to be increased.


  2. "Smart people, highly structured place to work."

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits, Professionalism of co-workers was outstanding, Lots of opportunity for visibility and opportunities to work with executives, Good Community support

    Cons

    Being in the finance industry at this time is very difficult. WaMu is being held up as a "how not to do business".

    Advice to Management

    Despite everything that has happened at WaMu, there were some highly capable, inelligent people who worked there who did everything in their power to make the customer happy. It is a shame that it will be remembered otherwise.
