    I have been working at Western Financial Group full-time

    Pros

    I've worked for this company for just over 3 years. There is a strong belief in investing in their employees successes and promoting from within. The culture within the company is great and feels like you are part of a family and not a large corporation. If you are looking for a rewarding, yet challenging career this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Company is working to keep up with technology and due to its size and geographical locations, it takes longer to adapt than a smaller company.

    I have been working at Western Financial Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Strong opportunities for career advancement, especially for women. 70% of Western's leaders are compromised of women, with a strong showing at the executive level. I'm proud to work for this company that empowers hard working, smart employees to advance their careers. There is opportunity for everyone. Benefits are fantastic. Western provides vast opportunities for learning. Expansion to a Canadian brokerage opens doors for even more opportunities including work from home positions.

    Cons

    Working in insurance is stressful, so be mindful that this job is fast-paced and ever changing. You have to have a willingness to be constantly learning and consistently able to have tough conversations with clients.

    I have been working at Western Financial Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The culture in the office is second to none. I have never felt more comfortable in a new job before. I have had incredible support in my journey to becoming a licensed insurance agent - they are very encouraging and want to see me succeed! I have never worked for a company who stands behind their employees as much as Western Financial Group does. They are VERY focused on their employees and being at the top of the Insurance game!

    Cons

    Wish I would have started sooner!!!
