    Pros

    The hours were great! Banker's hours and bank holidays are true blessings

    Cons

    Not as flexible with school schedules as they say they are

    Advice to Management

    Pay tellers more per hour to reduce money losses. Tellers are responsible for upwards of $25,000 per day being paid only $12 per hour...

    Pros

    In the community banking retail/admin area, the Senior Leaders are very supportive in learning your strengths and your desires for your future career path. They are also very encouraging towards community service involvement- in fact, fulltime employees, (after 4 or 5- not sure- sorry! years of service), can take a 4 mo. leave to help their favorite non-profit organization fulltime!! Communication between leaders and team members is very strong- daily, weekly, and montly conference calls, emails, and visits are the norm. Everyone works as a true team and helps eachother out.

    Cons

    If someone is averse to change, they may hesitate joining the Wachovia team for the time being. Wachovia is currently merging with Wells Fargo and although both companies are making a tremendous effort in order to ensure a smooth transition, someone averse to change could have a problem here.

    Advice to Management

    I truly think that the Management in the Community Banking sector is already doing a fantastic job on motivating their team and driving us toward the same goals and purpose.

    Pros

    Great hours. As long as we continue to close at 4. Great 401k, amazing paid time off. very competitive salary with good bonus structure

    Cons

    Wells Fargo is starting to hire unqualified managment, people who are not familiar with banking. Retail bank is just interested in gaining market share.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in those familiar with banking when they are going into the managment role.

    Pros

    I thought the atmosphere was very enjoyable, it all depends on what exactly you're job entails bc sometimes the job can be very boring but i have found my coworkers to be nice and enjoyable to talk to which makes up for the monotony I have found my managers to be very nice and have tried to compliment when you are working hard and exceeding expectations. If you work hard, others will notice.

    Cons

    it can be boring sometimes it seems like you are doing the same monotonous work over and over, but it depends on your job title. I was only a temporary employee so i was not privy to the same type of work environment that a full time regular employee might experience, however, the only difference i can see is it possibly being more tedious work such as greeting guest which can get annoying and make the day go on forever.

    Advice to Management

    Be friendly and give positive feedback when possible, it makes for a very great environment.

    Pros

    It is a great company to grow with and has many benefits compared to other large banks in the industry.

    Cons

    You many times work past a regular forty hour work week and do not get paid overtime.

    Advice to Management

    To find a better way to communicate information.
