    Culture varies - some departments are happier places to work than others.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsStill financially stable, even after Merrill Lynch was acquired by another company. Some departments do promote from within, and seemed to try to grow their employees. Senior management is knowledgeable, and although employees might wish for more communication from them, they probably do as well as senior management at any company of their size at communicating with the staff at large.

    ConsMostly judging by lunchroom discussions, some departments seem to be dead-ends. Transferring between departments doesn't seem as easy as it should be.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUm, congratulations on being stable working the sub-prime mortgage sector of the economy? You're obviously doing something right, because I'm sure I couldn't do it.

    Bad place to work

    Analyst (Former Employee)
    Beaverton, OR

    ProsIf you are looking for call center or interdepartmental job, its friendly and nice place to work if you want live in portland. If you work in a job that deals with management, it is a farm. Very unprofessional.

    ConsUnskilled management(lack of education). Lots of interdepartmental conflicts and arguments. Very stressfull work environment. The employee turn over is very high but in company statistics they find way to make that statistic blend with the call center stats.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate to your employees, find ways to keep good people.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It was not what I was led to believe..

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWilshire has been around a long time in various manifestations and has managed to survive, at times bouncing back from certain death. Employees at the bottom of the ladder are mostly great people to work with.

    ConsExpectations are high for new employees and the training and support from management is sketchy at best. Even when large numbers of new procedures are added (and revised a number of times), the newer employees are expected to meet the same standards as employees who have been there a long time. The pressure to meet the numbers causes poor customer service and lower productivity. Turnover seems to be pretty high, as does dissatisfaction and frustration at the lower levels.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a good look at the employees who really make it all happen - the ones at the bottom. Value the ones who are really trying, who are dedicated to getting it right. Value their strengths and give them the time and training needed to do the job right. Short term fixes cause more short term employees. Turn over is costly; and so is a bad reputation.

    wilshire works

    Workout Officer (Current Employee)
    Portland, OR

    ProsThere is a frenetic environment filled with can-do people at Wilshire. The compensation is acceptable and the benefits are generous. They treat there employees well.

    ConsThe productivity demands are enormous. There is an extraordinary amount of information to know and the changes to processes and procedures are daily. The training of new employees is lax.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe can-do attitude is great but the desire to respond to a given problem often appears reactionary and poorly thought out. Jay Memmot inspires terrific confidence as the CEO. He is the smartest person in every room and is sincere in his personal investment with Wilshire.

    Find a different company.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Portland, OR

    ProsCan't think of anything. Better than McDonalds? Good name recognition in the financial services industry.

    ConsCold, uncaring, arrogant management. Unless you are in the NY office, you are nothing and treated like the ugly stepchild. Funding for projects, much needed employees and resources, etc was not provided and they were content to let us struggle, with people working overtime as standard procedure. Management lacked vision and were constantly fighting fires without a commitment to a long-term strategy to improve it. They have problems retaining employees and yet won't approve replacement positions -- making a bad situation worse.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave a heart.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pitfalls for working at Wilshire

    Special Servicing Asset Manager (Current Employee)
    Beaverton, OR

    ProsOwned by parent company Merrill Lynch, which provides great benefits.

    ConsManagment is ineffective. Also pay and bonus pay is not related to performance. Technology is very poor and people in management fail to grasp even basic MS Excel use. People seem to be hired based on who they know as opposed to what they know. There is little oversight in professional integrity involved in loan servicing and loss mitigation departments.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey need to take a hard look at the type of people that are hired. Better training needs to be a priority. Underwriting integrity of LWO deals is practially non-existant, which could lead to legal trouble if something were to go wrong.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
