    If you don't sell every month (most don't) you dont work there anymore. Very high turnover (reps and mgmnt). Senior management is out to lunch

      I worked at Western Financial Group

      Pros

      No much benefits same as anywhere else

      Cons

      terrible senior management they don't care about the staff and come into the branch with their superiors bragging about the changes in the company and lying the whole time while you have to be polite and agree with them or you will be reprimanded. Why have employee surveys if we are told what to say and do and we could not be negative on them or they will get upset with the...

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

      Pros

      Many caring and hardworking staff made was the only positive in my work experience at Western

      Cons

      Senior management is too concerned with their own egos and too busy congratulating themselves for the victories of the staff. No vision and no apparent desire to have a clear vision. Leadership will talk the talk but do not walk the walk. If you are smart and creative then you are in the wrong place....too much of a threat to leadership.

      Advice to Management

      Think about how what you do everyday impacts the staff, the people doing the work, and not yourselves. Once this was a go to place for employment......... not at present though.

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

      Pros

      The people that work in the branches are some of the most caring and client focused people you will ever meet. They care about the company and it's values. They are completely loyal and dedicated to former owner and founder Scott Tannis. As a former employee, I still conduct my personal business with Western offices.

      Cons

      The former President Scott Tannis, has stepped down. The new President, Jeff Burke, was brought in from the outside the company. His focus is in attaining profits at any cost. The first item cut was the core values. Trust and Loyalty became a thing of the past. Many of the senior management and support people were given the axe with no notice. Loyal employees are leaving...

      Advice to Management

      My advice to Dejardin is to watch closely the health of their investment. They purchased Western to make money and it is a great investment. You need to look beyond the balance sheet to ensure that the senior leadership is managing your investment in a sustainable way. I am confident that Jeff Burke will exceed the profit targets this year, What is worrying the employees is what state the company will be in next year?
