    Avantages

    Some good staff, some great clients. Good health benefits

    Inconvénients

    Management...too many. They do nothing. Need to open their eyes

    Conseils à la direction

    Get rid of the back stabbers, and brown nosers, and actually look at your staff. Overworked underpaid. We do all the work and you're the ones going on extravagant holidays.

    J'ai travaillé chez Western Financial Group en contrat permanent (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    Wonderful people throughout the company. There is an amazing commitment to community through the Western Communities Foundation.

    Inconvénients

    Upper management does not have an open door policy. People disappear without announcements. There is a underlying culture of fear of job loss if people speak up. Just smile and do as you're told.

    Branch staff are severely unsupported by internal departments and decisions are made based on corporate politics and individual clout than what's best for the customer.

    Conseils à la direction

    Take come accountability and stop blaming branch staff for all issues, make a commitment to change for the better.

    Avantages

    Some great people at the branch level. Access to markets.

    Inconvénients

    Absolutley all at the executive level. Now, from the regional directors all the way up are a cut throat group who will sell you out to protect themselvs. The HR department is non existent. Extremely uncomfortable interactions with VP’s is an ongoing event. Rediculous “accountability” meetings to embarass you in front of a room full of people is so 18th century it’s crazy if unrealistic budgets aren’t met. Whats worse is that the people determining budget numbers dont have a clue about theit own economical challenges throughout the country but demand numbers are met. People, good people are just a commodity with this company and are disposed of almost daily if the line isnt towed. Not sure how some of these folks sleep at night.

    Conseils à la direction

    Not sure anything can be said to you. If there was one thing Inguess it would be that its only a matter of time until you’re found out.

    Avantages

    Head office is a great place to work. Everyone is extremely friendly and they definitely promote a work-life balance. They are a growing company and make you feel like you are a part of what they are building.

    Inconvénients

    The pay isn't as high as it would be in Calgary. There are social events throughout the month but it is not overly social outside of your team. Most people eat lunch at their desk and there are not many options to get out of the office because of location.

    Conseils à la direction

    Continue to support employees. Maybe look at a better compensation structure that would entice people from the city to High River.

    Je travaille chez Western Financial Group à plein temps (Plus de 3 ans)

    Avantages

    I have been with this company for three and a half years, and have had some of my best experiences with it. I have worked in two of our branches both in Southern Alberta as well as Central Alberta. Each office has helped coach myself in very different ways to be the broker I am today.

    I truly believe in Western Financial Groups focus on supporting our communities. I have been largely involved in our charity Support The Cause and I love seeing the impact the money we raise as an office has impacted my community.

    Western Financial Group is a fair company to work for, that truly enjoys seeing their employees succeed. When I began three and a half years ago, I started at our front desk as a receptionist. I have since then moved my way through our Personal Lines team. I could not have grown as much I have without the support of my coworkers and management team.

    I have recommended two long time friends of my own to the company, who have now become two long term employees to Western Financial Group.

    Inconvénients

    The pay is a little on the lower side, however they make up for it in their benefits, vacation time as well as their Incentive Program.

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep up the great work!
