    Pros

    The co. was a reasonably employee oriented organization. Poor Administration ultimately led to the co. going out of business.
    Upon shutting down unexpectedly, W J Bradley stiffed a number of very loyal and reliable vendors. These businesses could hardly afford the loss.

    Cons

    The co. Exec.s managed to take care of themselves financially, but left the rank and file swinging in the breeze. Their mismanagement of the co. unnecessarily hurt a great many people.

    I worked at W.J. Bradley Mortgage Capital (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There was always room for advancement and the atmosphere was like no other until upper management was changed to hire from outside the organization. Once upper management was changed it was a chaos, putting people that had no experience as supervisors, it started going downward.

    Cons

    The Owner never spoke to us with the truth. We were led to believe that everything was going to be ok, that we were getting new branches and then shut the doors!! No notice and the people that were most loyal and stayed in hopes that all would turn around and rise again were left dry. Every time there were layoffs everyone got severance pays with the exception of the ones that were there till the last minute.

    "Closing"

    I worked at W.J. Bradley Mortgage Capital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked at WJB for a little over 4 years. I did gain alot of knowledge and experience and was paid very well. I loved it there for the first 3 years!

    Cons

    They changed from a wonderful business to a chaotic mess. My heart goes out to all. And as odd as it sounds, my heart goes out to Mr Bradley. I know the extreme stress and heartache that comes from closing a business with more than a few employees. Bottom people don't get to see behind the scenes. It is so hard when you realize there is no way to recapture what you had. I hope you all find something better where you can heal and grow.

    Advice to Management

    TO Mr Bradley I would say learn from this and become stronger. Don't crawl in a hole. This country needs entrepreneurs who are willing to risk to provide jobs for the rest of us who are too scared and weak to even try. We all need to rely on each other so we are all successful.

    Was able to quickly adjust to industry changes as they came with software and mobility in systems and corporate changes on the fly

    Pros

    Pay was good, environment was good. Mid level managers were great but could never get good ideas past higher level executives.

    Cons

    The culture and identity of the firm was never really cemented. The executives could not settle on what the values of the company would be. How can you set expectations in that environment? It's about the people you hire not the bottom line. Hire the right people and the bottom line will be exceeded!

    Advice to Management

    Learn from this experience.
