    I worked at Wachovia part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Was great place to work when it was Wachovia! I will rate below based on Wachovia.

    Cons

    When they became Wells Fargo it took a turn for the worse. Everyone was unhappy employees and customers. The company stopped caring about the customer and only cared about the almighty dollar. Overworked, disrespected and unappreciated their employees. (sad)

    I worked at Wachovia full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great atmosphere to work in while in Richmond VA, the team leads, managers and superiors actually cared about their associates. Great team atmosphere. The company relocated in 2008 but that wasnt an option in the drop down.

    Cons

    Once the company merged with Wells Fargo and relocated to St. Louis the atmosphere there was different. The open door policy that existed in Richmond at Wachovia didnt exist in St. Louis at Wells Fargo with the managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Humanize yourselves. Treat employees like people and not like robots
