    Good Company of some... Frustrating for many

    Credit Manager (Current Employee) Kelowna, BC

    ProsWFF is an excellent company to start out with if you are looking to begin a career in the finance industry. Decent training program to learn the ropes in lending.

    ConsThe major downsides to working with the company include low salary to start, poor support and recognition, and a unattainable bonus structure in a few of the markets.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI believe the major issue with the corporation is that there is a very large gap between the ground level employees and upper level management who make the decisions. Many of the implemented policies do not seem to be very realistic.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    This company has one of the highest turnover rates in Canada, period.

    Credit Manager (Current Employee) London, ON

    ProsYou can get paid to do nothing.

    ConsHow much space do I have for this?
    Getting promoted is a joke. You're lucky if you get a 2% raise at promotion; there are NO yearly raises what so ever.
    Bonus structure is laughable. Sure there is an "opportunity" to make more money, but it requires an emmence amount of effort for a pathetic return. 99% of Credit Managers don't make bonus, those who do its rare for it to be over a few hundred dollars.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay higher base salary and give bonuses. There minimum targets are WAY too high at this company (on purpose so they don't have to promote anyone). Turnover for Credit managers in the GTA area was OVER 90% IN 2008!!!!! 90% THAT IS NOT A TYPO

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Working at Wells Fargo was a great experience.

    Loan Processor (Former Employee) Charlotte, NC (US)

    ProsI enjoyed the diversity, the different business, such as healthcare, personal care ,food court. Every thing you need was there.

    ConsThe compensation for me was a challenge, since I was hired on a low pay scale, but it didn't interfere with my performance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo be fair with each employee, and since we all are adults, treat each other with respect.
