    Pros

    Great Coworkers and decent time off

    Cons

    Stop changing commission structure so much. Increase the base. People have to eat, even in slow months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know the "lower people" that keep your paycheck coming.

    Pros

    Profitable Company
    Mostly cares about employees
    flexible
    growing
    mostly good people
    fun environment most of the time

    Cons

    WEX is CONSTANTLY re-organizing it's self, which makes life difficult for all employees.
     Leadership is very top-heavy .
    Relatively young leadership which makes it feel as though opportunities aren't there for advancement
    concise decision making of leadership leaves a lot to be desired

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make decisions and stick to them
    think longer term - decisions often time seem very short sighted

    Hire some leaders that will motivate us and bring energy to the masses

    I worked at WEX full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    WEX use to have a great culture of collaboration and caring

    Cons

    Executives are self centered and have forgotten the everyday employee. I left last month as all the people that cared or knew anything have left as the new Executive team and HR are literally living in a man made bubble. Folks left behind feel like they will never advance and nobody seems to care

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start caring about your employees

    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 (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!
