    Pros

    Great Coworkers and decent time off

    Cons

    Stop changing commission structure so much. Increase the base. People have to eat, even in slow months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know the "lower people" that keep your paycheck coming.

    Pros

    Profitable Company
    Mostly cares about employees
    flexible
    growing
    mostly good people
    fun environment most of the time

    Cons

    WEX is CONSTANTLY re-organizing it's self, which makes life difficult for all employees.
     Leadership is very top-heavy .
    Relatively young leadership which makes it feel as though opportunities aren't there for advancement
    concise decision making of leadership leaves a lot to be desired

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make decisions and stick to them
    think longer term - decisions often time seem very short sighted

    Pros

    Good team, solid management. I gained respect once I was able to prove my value.

    Some folks are using antiquated technologies.
    Some quirky and squawky people seemed to make it to the top on biz side; this was frustrating at times as they were not necessarily qualified to make these decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had a good experience. Thank you for 6 pleasant years.
