    I have been working at Wilbur-Ellis

    Pros

    Great Downtown SF location, professional business environment, decent pay

    Cons

    This is a very old private company that does not have stock holders to pressure change or improvement, the turnover is around 10%+ a year at the HQ because of poor leadership based on personal old boy network relationships( not skilled or qualified), Unless you are connected to leadership , you have no oppratunity and will be part of the " Survivor Island" process of an extremely negative political environment where people are fired all the time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to sack all mid- level managers at Connell & W-E and get fresh folks that are accountable to business success and not political games

    I worked at Wilbur-Ellis

    Pros

    Great benefits that include a comfortable work environment, subsidized public transportation and able to achieve a work/life balance.

    Cons

    The company is very much of a good old boy network. It feels as though you are part of a fraternity. You can work very hard and still get treated differently if you don't engage in the fraternity environment. It is a very stuffy place to work and very much a top-down structured company that still runs the way it did when it was founded in the earlier part of the 20th century.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and treat them fairly.
