WestLB Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
WestLB AG (derived from Westdeutsche Landesbank, i.e. "Western German state Bank") was a European commercial bank based in Düsseldorf, Germany which was mainly owned by the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. Landesbanks are a group of partly or wholly state owned banks unique to Germany. They are regionally organised and their business is predominantly wholesale banking. As of 30 June 2012, WestLB was downsized and Portigon Financial Services AG became the legal successor of WestLB.
A former Associate Director shared "WestLB AG is no longer in business and Portigon is now winding down and will be out of business by the end of 2016. When I did work there it was a nice company to work for. Paid decent salaries and rarely had to stay late. The work life balance was optimal there"
Registratorin (Current Employee) says"Wie aus der Tagespresse bekannt, wird die WestLB/Portigon bis 2016 abgewickelt. Mein Arbeitsplatz entfällt bereits in den kommenden Monaten, sodass ich Ihnen am Standort Düsseldorf ab dem 1.02.2014 in Vollzeit zur Verfügung stehen kann."
