    "Delusional"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Wilshire Associates

      Pros

      Location. That’s about all they got.

      Cons

      Along with CEO, President of Wilshire, CFO and CCO are very immature and childish. Their power trip is ridiculous. Benefits are jokes. HR is a big joke.

        I worked at Wilshire Associates full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        My review is based mainly on experiences within Wilshire's Funds Management Group (FMG). -Great people who take the time to mentor/coach you. Everyday you can learn something new and there's a plethora of intelligent and driven individuals. -Challenging and unique business opportunities. Wilshire FMG is great at adapting to market needs and providing services to help clients. -Career growth if you work hard and have...

        Cons

        -No 401(k) match -Parking is expensive -No gym subsidies or benefit -No clear communication/connection with the CEO -Not much transparency of how profits are distributed -Salaries can be below market in comparison to comparable finance firms -Glass ceiling for many is at the Vice President level -Company as a whole has no direct outlets for community involvement/giving

        Advice to Management

        FMG management continue to listen and clearly communicate with the group. The culture shift over the past 5 years has been great, but there's still room to grow and improve. More transparency of profits would be helpful IMO.
