    Bias against women, grade school work environment.

    Former Employee - Sales  in  South Portland, ME
    Former Employee - Sales in South Portland, ME

    I worked at WEX full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some great talent, albeit not very much so at the management level. Offers good PTO time option. Some flexibility with with hours. Since I only stayed a few years, can't say as I saw a lot of pros at this place.

    Cons

    I left because I was tired of the grade school work environment. I missed working with adults. Way too top heavy with management. A lot of female management but a definite bias against women. Sat through a ton of meetings with some pompous guy going off in something and no one blinked an eye. A woman made a similar argument and she was immediately labeled as "difficult to work with". For a supposed "tech company", very antiquated systems and not investing in workforce to manage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expanding fast, but company needs to grow up.

    I worked at WEX

    Pros

    great PTO time allocation for employees;

    Cons

    Senior Management has no clue how to run a sales org. With the new CEO, all SVP/GM positions are filled with bankers who have not a single clue how to manage sales. The company used to have a strong focus on sales and the value of sales-no longer. WEX will be chasing Fleetcor for years!

    I worked at WEX as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    I worked at WEX as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    There are some decent and smart people, but watch your back. If you put in the years, you can take month long vacations. Company is well positioned and makes a lot of money.

    Cons

    Lifers hanging on because they know they are antiquated and could never come close to what they are being paid by Wex. Very rigid bureaucracy. Fiefdoms are everywhere.

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

    Pros

    Healthy finances, growing, national and growing internationally.

    Cons

    Disorganized structure. For example one manager may cover many different brands from coast to coast, so your team mates are your direct competition. Too much focus on CRM tool. Unrealistic quotas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Speak to your staff more and get more down to earth as far as expectations
