    Pros

    7 minute window when clocking into work. There are no pro's because JPM Chase was really paying my salary not wingspan. If it was up to them, they would pay minimum wage.

    Cons

    Very poor management, no appreciation towards hard working employees. upper management dictated to the managers they were required to pay for the meat for our thanksgiving luncheon while employees were required to bring sides. What does that tell you? That is just one example

    Advice to Management

    too late, company closed down

    I worked at Wingspan Portfolio full-time

    Pros

    The people were great and some management like team mangers were okay not all. A beautiful building to work in and great desk. Great training in the beginning. Potential overtime almost every week.

    Cons

    The upper management choose to run this company. Some of the managers have committed serious crimes before, during and after this job and we're never apprehended just promoted and if you went to the non existent HR nothing was done and the site manager sweeped it under the rug. There were apparent favorite employees in secret meetings constantly. Subtle changes like the coffee machine or the computers being packed by one particular manager was uncalled for by highlighting the times in and out for work would be placed on your desk weekly and if you had more than 6 late meaning 1 min late you would be written up causing my whole department getting in car accidents. Another manager would talk about killing people and nothing was done about it except him being promoted. Also it is against the law to work in a place more than a year and never get offered benefits.

    Advice to Management

    The harshness implemented on temporary employees were not necessary nor ethical. Especially asking co-workers to pack others boxes before lay offs. Give benefits and raises to the employees that were a temp for a year as it is against the law.

    Pros

    Better pay than most employers in the area.

    Cons

    Absolutely no appreciation for the employees and the hard work they do. Most meetings and emails are about how much management thinks the employees efforts suck. No communication to the employees about anything, until rumours spread and then we get cussed out by our site VP...tres unprofessional...Most team leads don't even know how to underwrite a file, but are quick to tell you how to do your job...Watched as signs around the building kept pointing to impending job loss only to be lied to by managment that our jobs were not going anywhere. CEO fired for stealing millions from the company to support his daughter's musical career.

    Advice to Management

    too late now...company is closed down.

    I have been working at Wingspan Portfolio full-time

    Pros

    When the company was in growth mode, it was a fantastic place to work....

    Cons

    But senior management was easily distracted by highly paid "consultants" and "business development executives" who failed to bring a single client to the table. These supposed well connected executives -- and there were a lot of them -- sucked money and resources from Wingspan like leeches.

    Advice to Management

    It's too late now, but never hire a salesperson without a contract that holds them accountable for revenue....

    I worked at Wingspan Portfolio full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is better than most other companies in the same line of work in the area.

    Cons

    Communication with employees is almost non-existent in the Melbourne, FL location. Gross disorganization of management. They make employees feel like they are not appreciated by not communicating effectively especially in regards to benefits and also changes being made in the company. Hostile work environment with high output demands and management that is not knowledgeable or helpful to the teams they manage. Health insurance is VERY unaffordable costing over $500 per pay period (bi-weekly) to cover a family. 401k was offered for the first time in 2014, but the company does not match contributions.

    Advice to Management

    Show employees that you appreciate their hard work by offering bonuses and incentives for exceptional work.

    I worked at Wingspan Portfolio full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay was great but that was already set from previous employer (now client) whom employment was sold from. Great people to work with. Everyone looked out for each other and continues to do so after our employment has ended.

    Cons

    Having to make up holiday hours client approved off but employer didn't want to lose income. No opportunity for growth. A person leaves a position, that position is dissolved. Questionable fraternizing among upper management. Was with client for over one year, saw a raise and a bonus. With employer for almost twice as long and no bonus and pay raise was never an option. No trust in upper management. Was told jobs would be safe for another 18 months only to be told a few short months later that we were being furloughed and previous statement was a "technology contract" for us to use client computers only. Executives only sending a letter on last day of employment. Letter stated hoping to bring back 67% of employees within 6 months at "like pay" Offered position 2 months later for significantly less pay and later told those employees, who accepted the reduced pay, their services would not be needed. Inability to communicate with client. HR not available to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Start thinking about how you can help improve your employees. If you have employees who are not sure about their future or their employer, you're not going to get the elite level of work you expected.
