I worked at Western Financial Group full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Wonderful people throughout the company. There is an amazing commitment to community through the Western Communities Foundation.

Cons

Upper management does not have an open door policy. People disappear without announcements. There is a underlying culture of fear of job loss if people speak up. Just smile and do as you're told.

Branch staff are severely unsupported by internal departments and decisions are made based on corporate politics and individual clout than what's best for the customer.

Advice to Management

Take come accountability and stop blaming branch staff for all issues, make a commitment to change for the better.
