    I have been working at Western Financial Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I see good things happening for both the employees and the company. The change in leadership has brought a new perspective and will take us to the next level, which can only be a good thing. Benefits are improving all the time and the majority of people here are looking for ways to help themselves and the company move forward.

    Cons

    Who wouldn't like more money? But you look at the whole package and its a pretty good deal compared to other companies in the area.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, but never forget that it is your people who make the company a success, so continue to treat them fairly

    Interview
