    I worked at WestLake Financial Group full-time

    Pros

    CEO has a tremendous amount of experience to learn from if you are willing to put the time in. You get out what you put in and are rewarded accordingly.

    Cons

    We are all putting in our fair share of time in the office but my last paycheck reflected this and the experience I am gaining is second to none.

    Advice to Management

    Continue training as you are - employees are embracing this although some may not be sharing or stating this to you.

    I worked at WestLake Financial Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None- not one. Hard to use 5 words to describe this place!

    Cons

    Where to begin? First of all the reviews that state the owner is awful are absolutely correct. Any reviews otherwise trust me are fake reviews. If you want to work somewhere you are treated horribly, micromanaged, not trained and have crimes perpetrated against you- work here. I discovered a month into the new year that I worked here that they were withdrawing monies from paychecks for medical and dental but had not signed employees up for the benefits. I was never paid the commission I earned. I was at this job for 6 months and there were 3 comptrollers during that timeframe. One I reached out to after leaving the company and he said he had evidence the company was falsifying the books. This place was a nightmare!

    Advice to Management

    Whatever you are doing behind the scenes that this company is a front for- stop.
