    Overall it was O.K.. It seems that they like their employees to stay in the same role for extended periods of time.

    I have been working at Wachovia full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with. Overall I was satisified with the work and what was required of me.

    Cons

    Did not really seems like anyone was interested in promoting me or helping me advance my career. Was told that they knew I was being paid a below market salary - but if I wanted an increase to market rate I would need to get another job offer. Then we could discuss the possibility of an increase. Funny thing is I actually did that - but then took the other job resluting in a 40% salary increase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.

    Pros

    Good benefits, regular hours. Other than that, not much.

    Cons

    No room for creativity in the least. If you do well, they make it more difficult for you until you can't do well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't move your top performers to a position where they can't keep that up
