    I have been working at Wintrust Financial full-time for more than a year


    Great People. The corporation just bought a new building.


    Unorganized. The management is horrible and the pay is below average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you do not increase wages, you'll lose your best people.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Wintrust Financial.

    Interview Details

    One phone interview and one face to face. Quick offer, not much salary negotiation. It was one of the less intensive interview processes I have experienced. The questions were basic, but i feel that i am over qualified fro the position. I would rate it a 7 out of ten.
