It was wonderful at first...

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Bryn Mawr, PA

I worked at JG Wentworth full-time for more than 3 years

ProsIt'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.

ConsThere 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 Senior ManagementRevamp the entire middle management team before you have an employment lawsuit on your hands.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A complete mess!

Associate (Current Employee)
Radnor, PA

I have been working at JG Wentworth full-time for more than a year

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Solid job

Account Executive (Current Employee)

I have been working at JG Wentworth full-time for more than a year

ProsYoung 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.

ConsManagement 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

BEST COMPANY IN THE UNIVERSE

Account Executive (Former Employee)

I worked at JG Wentworth full-time for more than a year

ProsThey're a caring company with a high moral character. "Consummate professionalism" is this classy place's motto. If sexual harassment, shady anti-competitive practices, and manipulating desperate people is your thing - you've found the right place!

ConsWe should take a higher amount of people's settlement money. Let them eat cake...

Advice to Senior ManagementMaybe diversify into arms dealing with African warlords since that field shares a common moral fabric.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
