Crazy place to work! Run away!
Worker (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHApril 28, 2017
Cry babies rule. Management always gives in to the cry babies. The women make all the rules and do what they want. If they don't want to do the work because it hard, they complain to their manager, and he changes his view and dumps the work on the newest person.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons

Horrible
Confidential (Former Employee) –  MichiganMarch 2, 2017
High pressure, people are constantly quitting or being fired. This is an awful place and I would not wish it on anyone. Stay away. Management has extremely unrealistic expectations and so good people are quitting constantly. This is an awful place.
Pros

Management Lies
Registered Representative (Former Employee) –  Ashtabula, OHNovember 30, 2016
Management steals leads from sales people. Upper Management allows local management to steal from their employees. When you call corp to complain, they have a lawyer call you back and change what was said.
Pros
None
Cons
Bad company to work for!

Standard work week is 45 hours. Programming is understaffed.
Senior Programmer Analyst (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHSeptember 10, 2016
Work week typically exceeds 45 hours per week not counting off hours support. Programmers are overloaded. Development time is the first thing slashed when a project is behind.

very strong financial services company
District Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Pensacola, FLJuly 18, 2016
WS has been in business over 120 years now. They are a Fortune 500 company and very stable financially. The last comdex rating I saw was 96 which is remarkable. Last year was their greatest earnings year ever. That being said, they do have very rigid rules especially for their clerical personnel and they have a rather byzantine bureaucracy which responds to change very slowly. Communication within the company is not their strong suit.

They have excellent benefits and vacation and a better than average contract. If you are in sales and willing to work you have an opportunity to make serious money. If you pursuing a non-sales position, approach with caution.
Pros
good benefits and generous vacation
Cons
rigid petty rules and uber strict dress code only enforced on admin associates
