    I worked at Western Financial Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some great people, good transfer opportunities.

    Cons

    Very little head office support, they do not understand the value of having employees at the front line level. They prefer to pay minimum wages, give bad service, and leave the branch managers to struggle through these challenges on their own. And should you choose to actually voice your opinion, say goodbye to your employment. They have zero respect for their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror in the morning, and ask yourself "How would I live to be treated? With dignity & respect, or spit on like dirt?"
