    I have been working at JG Wentworth

    Pros

    -Fellow employees and management are for the most part cordial and respectful, and many are very bright
    -Salary is competitive
    -Casual dress and "loose" atmosphere
    -Some interesting work. Not a ton of down-time or boredom.
    -New executive team does know what they are doing. Will almost certainly improve the business/profit side of the company

    Cons

    -Benefits are really lacking. For example, PTO is extremely low compared to most companies that want to keep talented employees that value work-life balance. No sick days. Working from home due to emergency/sickness seems to be frowned upon by some management, while executives are pushing it.
    -No tuition reimbursement (which would be a huge perk for a company with such a young employee base), and training/development is very low priority.
    -Keeping valuable employees is not as important as "keeping the machine running"
    -Company touts work-life balance but does not follow through on it.
    -Extremely hard to get rah-rah and work long hours for a company that does not emphasize any community service or charity, and also does not produce a service or good that seems to benefit society

    Pros

    Best colleagues, nice to communicate with, the supervisor are very nice to help you learn the company

    Cons

    less competitive compensations, and relationship with colleagues is kind of complicated. There is a staff accountant fired because another staff complained about him with manager. It makes me hard to trust my mates sometimes.

    Pros

    The benefits aren't bad, but not worth the rest of the mess you have to put up with!

    Cons

    Senior management couldn't care less about the employees. All they care about is making money. Not sure how they managed to fool everyone and go public because the place is a disaster. They have no procedures, no documentation and forget about any training. You better be able to sit down and perform immediately or you'll be held accountable. If you can't figure it out on your own, you might want to pray you'll get fired so you can at least collect unemployment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace some people who think 'business as usual' will continue to carry this company in a dying industry.

    Pros

    It's close to the city. You can make good money and you will be there forever as long as you make the company money. Upper management is great.

    Cons

    There are some issues with prejudice and racism. The environment can also be very cut throat. Its about who you know. If you know the right people you can get away with anything including openly racist comments on the sales floor. The hours are long. Do not report anything to HR you will be fired if it pertains to a person who is friends with management. There is a lot of smoke and mirrors. Management will tell you one thing and then do the complete opposite. By the time you leave the company you will be paranoid and distrustful of future employers. There isn't much room for advancement opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp the entire middle management team before you have an employment lawsuit on your hands.

    Pros

    Young youthful sales floor. Compensation is straight forward and there is the ability to move up with hard work. Very nice new office and free bagels and coffee.

    Cons

    Management will play favorites. Rules change daily so you sometimes have no idea if you are doing something correctly. Managers are hired for production abilities over ability to lead a group.
