    Pros

    Very ambitious atmosphere, many people are making good income. Lots of lead to pull from. You see you commission check quickly

    Cons

    Need a gym on campus. That would be good for the stressful days. Other than that company is very fun to work at

    Pros

    If unrealistic expectations and lack of managerial accountability can be considered a "Pro" then there you go.

    Cons

    Competent individuals will not remain in your employment if they are unable to trust management or your lack of vision. What's left will get promoted making life miserable for everyone else.

    "Horrible Company"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA

    I have been working at JG Wentworth (More than a year)

    Pros

    nothing positive to say. much work is needed on their end to improve the overall culture and structure of this organization.

    Cons

    Horrible leadership, no diversity at the top, lack of professionalism -however, there is plenty of favoritism, nepotism. Those within the company do not have current knowledge and skill set to move this company forward. It is still the good ole boy network. There is no such thing as discretion or confidentiality. The people are dishonest and only seek to keep their job. No room for advancement, no training or advanced education to keep the employee's skill set and knowledge relevant. HUGE lack of business acumen and integrity. Stocks plummeted - $14.00 a share two years ago, now $.35 a share.

    Advice to Management

    The board needs to fire upper management. I've never seen a CEO who did not deliver still be gainfully employed.

    Pros

    It is the best place to too learn how to loose all of those pesky morals.

    Cons

    It is an absolute boys club! You either fit in our you get eaten alive. The management from the top down are clueless and inexperienced. They are completely unprofessional and could not care any less about the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Quit.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, office environment, benefits, and branding.

    Management is cliquish, difficult to advance if your are not a part of the cool crowd, restructuring resulted in many layoffs and change in compensation.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at JG Wentworth full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers are great people
    Pay is alright

    Cons

    lack of communication
    management
    going through rough times and a lot of layoffs
    favoritism
    no recognition for working hard
    hard to take vacations (if you do, you're basically punished)
    No room to advance

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, I would suggest starting over. Structured settlements are dying (stop lying to yourselves that it's not), and focus on Mortgages. Start communicating with your employees and treating them like workhorses. If you're in the executive wing, stop looking down at employees not at your level. Stewart needs to go if you want the company to survive or just shut the doors now.

    I worked at JG Wentworth (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free daily Starbucks and Cafeteria onsite that was reasonable.

    Cons

    Leave your morals at home.

    Advice to Management

    There is nothing I can suggest that would make a difference in any way. They must know with the high turn over rate, that is a reason.
