    Pros

    WEX Health is a fast growing, progressive, technology-focused company with friendly coworkers. GREAT culture and exciting energy! And lots of treats :) Also, we are moving into a new building soon, with a game room, two break rooms, a patio, and fireplace.

    Cons

    That not many people have gotten to know who we are and how awesome of a place it is to work!

    Pros

    Great co-workers all around. Great environment. Everyone is so friendly and willing to help. Free coffee, tea, water. Free lunches every now and then. Great benefits (401k, health, PTO)!

    Not a whole lot of room for growth even if they tell you there is.

    I worked at Evolution1 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Full time employees are pretty much lifers. Very casual workplace culture with good compensation packages. Easy access to friendly executive leadership for guidance.

    Cons

    Major holes in oversight in certain departments, resulting in unnecessary spending. Upward mobility takes a good amount of time.

    Advice to Management

    Closely review oversight effectiveness in Edina office's level 2 technical support.

    I worked at Evolution1 full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The CT office runs their IT projects very well and the management is good, especially on the client services and customer support side. They still take pride in keeping the customers satisfied so their software quality has remained a priority even after the merger. The employees were treated well and I believe still are. I cannot speak of the other offices in other states, they all run with different management styles. The latest company WEX that purchased EV1 recently hasn't had any negative impact that I've heard of. Overall the CT office is a nice place to work. The managers are easy to work with and very knowledgeable.

    Cons

    The company used to be a happier place a few years ago when it was smaller (before merger with LIghthouse 1). It was called a merger but LH1 really took over so the CT office has changed by LH1 influences. The offices outside of CT try to push as many software updates as possible into a release leaving employees scrambling to fix after it goes live which tends to be very stressful at times. The other offices outside of CT don't seem to be as client or quality focused which seems to result in dissatisfied customers and stress on the employees after software releases. I would worry the CT office will decline if more employees and managers leave. It is sad, it used to be an excellent company to work for, now it is just okay.

    Advice to Management

    Run Evolution1 with the focus on clients and quality that Evolution Benefits management style had.

    I have been working at Evolution1 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Evolution1 has been full of amazing opportunities with the growth and flexibility to take your career to the next level. The location in Fargo is growing and is due to wonderful management in this location and flexibility in work situations.

    Cons

    The WEX purchase has created some inconsistencies in culture, benefits and systems.

    Advice to Management

    Do not let the WEX corporate negativities play into the awesome culture that was developed at Evolution1. We have grown this business and been successful for a reason.
