    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Western Financial Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Western has excellent benefits that are 100% employer paid. I have been with the company 2 years and already got a promotion. A clear career path was set up for me.

    Cons

    The company has many new initiatives with the New Epic broker Management, a clear Onewestern strategy, and focus on improving customer experience.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the work on adding assistant managers. This position has helped me prepare to be a better leader. I look forward to a long and rewarding career with Western.
