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

    Pros

    The company provides great benefits (i.e. health insurance, employee discounts etc). There are multiple job opportunities which allows ample opportunity to advance within the company.

    Cons

    The bank side places high sales pressure on their employees resulting in high stress and unethical employees. At times, it can feel like you are "just a number" to the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually listen to your employees, don't scare them in to silence

    Current Employee - Operations Clerk in Omaha, NE

    I have been working at Wells Fargo part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good hours, good pay, great benefits. Usually fosters a positive work environment. Stay away from retail though, I hear its pretty miserable.

    Cons

    Still corporate. Can be a lot of dumb procedures or things not very clear to follow. Managers can sometimes not be aware on what your job actually entails.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on encouraging managers to be more involved on a personal level and less constrained to their office.

    "Huge goals, opportunity to advance"

    Current Employee - Branch Manager in Lincoln, NE

    I have been working at Wells Fargo

    Pros

    Great opportunity for growth and advancement, especially if you're willing to relocate to a larger city within the US.

    Cons

    Goals are always waaaaaaaaaaaaay above what's attainable, and go up 10% each year. If you reach the goal, it wasnt set high enough for you.

    Long hours, little care about life outside of work, no time adjust days for working 9 hours on Saturdays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to support PTO, rather than making people feel guilty for investing time in their personal life.

    Good place to learn sales and profiling.

    Current Employee - Personal Banker II – Registered in Omaha, NE

    I have been working at Wells Fargo

    Pros

    Great pto, 4 weeks the first year. Match 100% for the first 6% of 401k. If you can learn to sell and profile here it will serve you well in future sales jobs. Pay is good for what I do, unfortunately not a lot of growth potential for your career.

    Cons

    Serious lack of career growth. Very very large sales plan, feel sorry for the Wachovia people when they see our sales plan. Push products on people they might not necessarily want, can be a very pushy sales environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management at the very top is really good. Most branch managers are good but are pushed along with everyone else to produce sales.
