    I have been working at Western Financial Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent salary but overtime is expected without compensation

    Cons

    Management does not back employees especially at times when they should. Always feeling like I am a terrible employee or worried I will get fired for not meeting sales goals

    Advice to Management

    See your employees as people first instead of as expendible sales tools

    I worked at Western Financial Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is literally nothing good about working here. Nothing at all.

    Cons

    Low pay, understaffed to save the company money, excessive work load, expected unpaid overtime with no notice in interview or job ad, no leadership, catty and inappropriate coworkers, no hands on training, everyone there makes tones of mistakes, apathy abounds, extremely high stress, women dominated - gossip and throw you under the bus when you're barely even out of training, no ergonomic assessments, extremely high turn over, forced volunteering or donations to charity, extremely poor functioning software with no notes section and no history, notes are made on activities and it can be very hard to track down what happened on a policy, if the internet goes out you lose all the client files you were working on, have to triple your work by writing everything down on paper in case this happens then enter it in two places, complaints to TL and management are ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Please quit and let adults manage the company.
