I was 1 of 500 that was laid of prior to Christmas 2020. Confidential reasons given were that loss in market share and increase salaries in upper middle management the company had to eliminate sales positions. The company has focused on acquiring smaller companies that boost balance sheets artificially instead of being honest with customers and providing real solutions to their challenges. After interviewing with a large competitor I found out that they had been in negotiations to purchase the agribusiness division but decided that they were to much of a liability due to the top heavy nature of the management structure. I hope that things turn around for the sake of all that depend on making a living at Wilbur Ellis. Buying up smaller companies that would detract from market share and making them follow the same business practices that has put the mother company in a bad position is going to lead all involved to the same tragic end.
