    Great place to work

    Operations Specialist (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat 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.

    ConsOnce 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 Senior ManagementHumanize yourselves. Treat employees like people and not like robots

    Great Experience

    Financial Specialist (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsCompetitve pay, flexible hours, nice incentive plan with no cap. Management expressed expectations and employees were always in alignment with company goals.

    ConsWells Fargo endorsed the Pick a Pay Mortgage which ultimately led to their downfall. There were not very many positions outside of the actually branch, so growth was limited.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
