Great People - Culture Changing

Vice President (Current Employee)
Orlando, FL

I have been working at Wachovia

Pros- Most individuals want to make a difference
- Opportunity to work in many areas of country
- Medical Benefits are very fairly priced

Cons- Corporate Culture is in flux
- Some leaders tend to be myopic; negatively impacting stakeholders
- Training and advancement somewhat limited outside of San Fran, Minneapolis, and Charlotte

Advice to Senior ManagementMove away from mindset of "this is the way we have always done it" to a vision-based orientation that leverages team member skills, abilities, and strengths.

One of the better institutions to work for.

Licensed Financial Specialist (Former Employee)
Lighthouse Point, Broward, FL

I worked at Wachovia

ProsThe friends youll make with the employees, relationships with the customers and the closing of sales for your deals.

ConsUnethical conduct by employees and sometimes certain management personel. Ranging from crossing certain boundaries to get the sales to flat out crimes. Also,

Advice to Senior ManagementTry not to get as bad as some of the other institutions in nickel and dimeing the customers. Also, tellers tend to be a low point it seems compared to other banks, on average.

The job's great, but you can burn out pretty quickly looking for something more challenging.

Licensed Financial Specialist (Current Employee)
Jacksonville, FL

I have been working at Wachovia

ProsGreat work-life balance. Being on the sales end of jobs allows for more control of your work schedule. As long as sales goals are met you can dictate how many hours you are putting in. If you're in a good branch with a good FCM, it's much easier to meet and exceed sales goals.

ConsIllogical sales deadlines. Communication from the top could be better. Trying something completely new when regular system already works. Each year they raise the incentive requirements. Sometimes it doesn't feel like senior management has a good handle on the local market and they expect you to surpass goals even if it's not realistic.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf a system isn't broke, don't fix it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

good pay

Licensed Financial Specialist (Current Employee)
Miami, FL

I have been working at Wachovia

ProsUpper managment is respectful and understanding when it comes to your personal life. Compensation is a plus when you do the work that is given to you. Time off is great becuase you get 2 weeks paid time off and 2 weeks family care. You can also contribute to your community 8 hrs paid per month. You just need to show proof you will be at the function that you state. The system you work with empowers you to complete various tasks without having to run to anyone or managment. If you like a challange then you should come work here.

ConsThe benefits are not the best. The only thing good about the benefits is the match 401k. Medical and dental is way too high.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe available more often.
