    Cross Sell or Unemployment, Wells Fargo Only Wants Employees To Sell Customers

    I have been working at Wells Fargo (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits (but cost creeping up and coverage creeping down each year), Good Morale Both Management and Coworkers, and Honestly a Great Company.

    Cons

    Cross Selling is the only focus now, firing employees who are great at their job in every area that should matter but if the cross selling results are not meeting the ever ridiculous quota (which continues to rise) than you may not have a job next month. Expectation for customers to say yes to cross selling, leaving you with no real control of your job security. Stress!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cross sell expectations are going to destroy the customers experience after all tenured employees are fired. All that will be left are employees that cross sell and could not resolve a true complex issue.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo

    Pros

    Diverse work environment, Learning Environment

    Cons

    Up-Ward Mobility (even with given education/experience - Hiring managers hire on the basis of "liking" a person rather than from qualifications)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure that all management (supervisor,mid-level) hire due to qualification rather than personal preference to a candidate. I have seen management do this which leads to poor employee morale for the company, high turnover rates to other departments or out of wells Fargo, and compliance issue due to unqualified persons taking shortcuts or they incorrectly action something, leading to issues down the quarter. I have expressed this issue to management however it seems to prevail with lack thereof any review or change. Please do not take this as a bad review, it is a minute detail in the grandeur scale of Wells Fargo. So please apply and learn from the experience you are about to embark on, you will meet some fantastic people and in the process learn a language or two. I love working with the people in Wells Fargo albeit some minor issues.
