    I worked at Western Financial Group

    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.
