    I have been working at Wells Fargo as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I liked the ability to work independently and with other team members. The project laid out was fairly comprehensive but it was a pleasing challenge.

    Cons

    Bank retailers at sales oriented establishments need to stay true to the vision and values and look out for the customer, not the sale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of such high sales goals. It will corrupt the retail side of Wells Fargo.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Many opportunities await you at Wells Fargo if you are hired and are able to put up with their corporate policies and culture. Training is phenomenal. I will keep the skills I've learned here with me for the rest of my life. The products and services are unmatched.

    Cons

    The company I learned about in training isn't the same company I worked for. There's more to banking than checking accounts and "solutions," but that's really all that matters at the end of the day. You can do what's right for the customer, but if that doesn't result in numbers, then we have a problem. 3 checking accounts and 15 solutions (or sales) one day doesn't matter when you only get 4 solutions the next. Expect lots of scripting here, ridiculous stipulations to work around to keep accounts free for customers, and lots of stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You only value your employees when they produce. Numbers may matter, but they aren't everything. Loosen up a bit, and you will have fewer customers with accounts and services that were either pushed onto them or they didn't sign up for. Turnover would be much lower, and fewer employees across all levels of the company wouldn't get fired for cheating on numbers.

    Pros

    Great customers, loved the people I worked with and had a lot of training and coaching.

    Cons

    Very high standards for sales and not much upper management presence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to drive sales in your stores and want to harp on everyone about driving sales then it might be a good idea to come and participate in coaching sessions.
