    Pros

    The biggest pro of Western for me is job security. We are one of the few companies with offices scattered throughout Western Canada and, because of this, if there is a requirement for an employee to move to another city there is a good chance they can work for the local Western branch.

    Western offers many advancement opportunities. A career can be advanced in Personal, Commercial or Life Insurance, Living Benefits or even Management.

    Western offers one of the best compensation packages in the industry including quarterly performance bonuses, RRSP matching, an Employee Share Ownership Program and a great benefit package.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons.

    Pros

    Interesting and challenging job, many good people, adequate benefits

    Cons

    Total focal is on numbers. Upper management completely out of touch and unapproachable. Lower management relies on bullying tactics.

    Advice to Management

    Get in touch with your employees. Drop the 'everyone is replaceable' philosophy and really try to engage your employees. They are the face of your company. Work with lower management to bring out the best in your employees rather than trying to slot them into pigeon holes. Focus on customer focus as that will bring in more business
