    Former Employee - Senior Client Services Specialist in Norcross, GA

    I worked at Wells Real Estate Funds full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company culture is a one of a kind. It was truly like working with a big family. From the unbelievable benefits, work life balance, and family first atmosphere, I couldn't have asked for a better place to work. A lot of PTO offered and can be accumulated over time, free healthcare, and great team and company building events. The CEO, Leo Wells, is a true leader and inspiration for me and have had a huge impact on my life. Having happy employees, leads to great products and service

    Cons

    Employees were a little misled or uninformed on the company status until it was a little too late. Company couldn't really adapt to a changing business tactics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the employee and culture driven attitude. Make sure to operate from the heart and soul

    I have been working at Wells Real Estate Funds full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've never been around such great people as during my time at Wells REF. Everyone was willing to talk to anyone and everyone always seemed happy. Vacation and benefits were the most generous of anywhere I've ever heard of

    Cons

    a lot of the issues with the non-traded REIT world and the upcoming regulations are because of how Wells handled their first two products.

    Pros

    Leo Wells, the owner, really cares about his employees and tries to consistantly give the best benefits available to them.

    Cons

    The senior management tends to not share a 'single-focus' with the rest of the company. There are many silos which at times can cause unnecessary disfunction overall

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set a corporate goal and share the plans with the staff. Use the expertise available in the company and allow it to grow.

    Pros

    Best group of people you could work with. Upper management respects the employees and treats them very well. Benefits are unbelievable and the work / life balance is great. The company has a successful history and has done a lot of great things.

    Cons

    The company has gone through some tough times recently, but management has handled it as well if not better than most companies would.

    Pros

    Culture is pretty good and encouraging. They reward good performance and have an excellent health care package. Overall, its a fun place to work.

    Cons

    Not many. The company sounds like it might be shutting down, so that would be a big con. Other than that, its a good place to work.
