    I have been working at Wilbur-Ellis full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good solid company with strong ethics and tradition. Training is there to make you a strong contributor. Solid company vehicle plan. Leadership is strong.

    Cons

    Career guidance is like the wild west or looking for the northwest passage (people swear it was there) A few more managers than leaders. No one has any idea what an advancement can pay. Very hush when it comes to salaries and seems to be arbitrary .

    Advice to Management

    More personality and team training and less sales training. Diversity needs to continue to increase. Be active.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Wilbur-Ellis full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was a job that I actually liked going to work

    Cons

    After 5 & 6 months of work I got Lateral epicondylitis, you get this by performing repeated cycles. I had surgery & after recovering & returning having 6 years being in the company I returned to work just to have my supervisor saying there's no work for you, while there was an add for my position in the add. I got an attorney & ended with a settlement but lost a job that I really liked

    Advice to Management

    An injury from performing repeated cycles is not injury that would stop someone that loves their job.

    Salary and Benefits Sales Perks Non-routine Customer interaction

    Cons

    Profane and Arrogant Culture Lack of leadership Non-team oriented Low promotion or recognition. High turnover of successful employees

    Advice to Management

    Don't push out the experienced and successful employees who add growth to the bottom line. They just become competitors who take business and account relationships with them.
