    I worked at Western Financial Group full-time

    Pros

    paid vacation, personal days and sick days

    Cons

    No support from management and above
    Not enough front line staff
    Not paid near enough money for the work
    Low office morale
    Different rules for different staff
    Throw new staff to the wolves and hope they survive
    Management implements plans that work for them and not for staff. They have no concept of how to deal with staff problems away from work, especially those who have family outside Canada
    Too high sales targets and staff are being constantly hit with new targets and threatened when they aren't reaching them.
    If a manager dislikes you, you might as well pack your bags and walk before you are pushed

    Advice to Management

    Realise your staff are tired of your stupid targets and ideas and are afraid to say anything
    Stop telling them to suck it up or the door is over there
    Treat your staff as though they are valued. Stop hiding behind you office door and realise that all is not well in your office.
    Spend sometime sitting beside your staff and see what they go through on a daily basis. ALL IS NOT WELL LOOK AROUND YOU
    Staff are demoralised and are actively looking elsewhere. Some of them have 2 jobs because they aren't earning enough. Take heed of the employee engagement survey.
    You are going to lose a lot of experienced staff if you don't listen and TAKE ACTION

    Pros

    There are no pros at this place.

    Cons

    Management only cares about selling out the company. It's all about the push for more sales. HR is a joke when you have any problems and there is virtually no support. Stay away from this company, you'll thank me later.

    Advice to Management

    None.
