    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    WaMu had a very diverse group of people to work with and everyone knew what they were doing and very knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Did not feel like I was needed and was constantly felt underrated and disrespected by management and felt they had little faith in my work.

    Advice to Management

    Management could make the team feel a little more included and treat those working under them with more respect and value.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    To employees, the company was 100% transparent (perhaps, if they treated shareholders the same, the bank might still be in business.)

    Cons

    As a whole staff lacked passion. Also, to avoid layoffs, employees were transferred to new teams whether they posses core competencies or not. This in turn, hurt the overall work produced. Very difficult for promotion outside of Seattle.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing is going to bring back this place
