    Shady practices

    Pros

    The CEO isn't in the office every day, so paranoia isn't an every day thing

    Cons

    One of the most toxic work environments I've ever been a part of. False promises are consistently made. Very "clicky" environment, people always talking behind your back, fearing for your job constantly.

    Former Employee, more than 8 years

    Pros

    Hard working employees, short coomute if you live in the Buffalo Grove area, free lunch during open enrollment, plenty of parking

    Cons

    I was part of the leadership team and can Confirm fake reviews were written. In fact, I wrote one! The owner is paranoid, sells things to clients that cannot be delivered, and fires others because the client leaves or threatens to leave because he sold something thatcould not be supported with the WFG archaic technogy. He makes promises of change, tells you he will support change, but doesn't put his money where his mouth is. Also, the owner and his "cronies" are worst than 16 year old girls with their gossip about the hardworking.g employees. It's comical to see how they attempt to turn employees against each other. There were many times I was uncomfortable with how the President talked down about people who were giving everything they have. Also, the CEO is unprofessional....he makes inappropriate comments in front of the ladies regularly.

    Incompetent to the top.

    Pros

    The job was relatively easy, though it was constantly busy. The benefits weren't too bad either. They did have some small company perks like a Christmas party.

    Cons

    It seems the further up the ladder the more incompetent they got. Upper management was totally full of themselves (example: when they would come into work, they used to park in the fire lane rough in front of the doors). Some had no business being in the positions they had there at the time. And even though it was a small company there was such a disconnect just by walking through a doorway from the call center to the offices, no one knew what the other was doing.

    Poor management, no direction

    Pros

    Some good people actually work here - although it seems they are flocking away.

    Cons

    As many reviews before this have pointed out, the management of this company is horrendous. In years of experience, I have never seen things done more unprofessionally. The management, specifically the Owner, has no ability to take responsibility for a failing business. He is constantly blaming others while simultaneously trying to glorify himself. He dictates the infectious culture of gossip and back stabbing, which leads to the erosion of solid business practices. I have consistently heard of people leaving and having to sue for their final paycheck a or bonuses due. Guess ill have to be prepared to live without mine. You would think for someone who claims to be as important and revered as the management here does, they wouldn't waste their time with petty matters of payroll. It just furthers the sense one gets while at the office that there just isn't enough money to go around - bills don't get paid and vendors are constantly threatening to shut off service or in the lobby waiting to get paid. It's pathetic.
